May 13, 2003: The Ultimate Trash To Treasure

OK, so it might be right up there with cold fusion and other technological flim-flams . . . but it might not.

In this Discover magazine article, scientists (and more importantly, businessmen) believe they can turn just about anything -- waste from poultry processing plants, manure, plastic bottles, old computers, garbage, you name it -- into fuel oil, and do it cheaply.
