A Generator That Turns Trash Into Electricity?

On February 1, just a few weeks ago, Purdue University News published a very interesting article about their invention of a generator that turns trash into electricity. This generator is called the "tactical biorefinery." A group of scientists have created it to efficiently convert food, paper, and plastic into electricity.
This machine was designed for the U.S. military and it would allow soldiers to convert waste into power. The best part of all is that the “tactical biorefinery” will have civilian applications in the future.
