Finally, an answer to the garbage problem
« on: June 03, 2007, 05:21:40 PM »
Joseph Longo's Plasma Converter turns our most vile and toxic trash into clean energy—and promises to make a relic of the landfill.

That sounds pretty darn cool!

And this quote is just great :-*

“You can’t rely on the customer to tell you what they put in,” Longo says. “Sometimes they don’t know, sometimes they lie, and sometimes they’ve thrown in live shotgun shells from a hunting trip. That’s why it’s imperative that the Plasma Converter can take in anything.”

Even without the syngas output, just being able to get rid of garbage in a pretty clean way is fantastic, imho. So, what's the catch?

Well... From the article:

To put me at ease, Longo calls in David Lynch, who manages the demonstration facility.

Ah, so that's it.  The catch is that everything will be going well one minute, and then suddenly nothing else will make any damn sense, and we'll all have a hard time explaining what in the world just happened.

Haha, I did snicker a bit about "David Lynch" myself. You reckon there will be a reactor meltdown creating a really bizarre parallel universe with dwarves eating cream-of-corn?
