    So far, others figured out how to make them: create electricity, gas, or charcoal; process clean water, or mineral extraction as well as sanitization.

    Significant cash prizes and monetary backing available..

    Forget Mac & PC.. Windows and OSX.. a significant change in waste management would have global impact in a way very few tools do. So, you have a good idea?

    The Gates Foundation is giving $370M + Ongoing investment capital to help find the right idea.
