Dung Powered Water Purifier! January 23, 2009

No I’m not kidding.  There is a company in the U.S. that has created a water purifier for questionable water sources (ocean, urine, sewage, etc) that can be powered by cow dung!  Sounds strange but in thinking it sounds like a great idea.

Here’s a summary (from: 25 Most Promising Green Businesses).

Better known as the inventor of the Segway, Dean Kamen is now manufacturing the Slingshot, a filterless water purifier that makes drinking water out of sketchy water sources like sewage, ocean water, and urine. It runs off of cow dung and generates enough electricity to run a building full of light bulbs. Hoping to instigate a phenomenon, Kamen is handing units to impoverished villages. The handy device costs the rest of us $1,000-$2,000.

Here’s a couple of another link that I found about this To Build a Better World.

It is amazing what inventors can come up with.  No limit to innovation!
