Apparently there is a process soon ready to go commercially that can break almost any type of waste (as long as it is carbon based) down into oil, gas, water and minerals without using more energy than it returns(in the form of gas and oil). Anyone ever hear about this before?

Will we ever be filling up on recycled turkey "leftovers" or munincipal sewage?

Actually this looks really cool. Proven on a smaller scale and about to go into large-scale production soon. Doesn't sound like another cold fusion incident. Never have heard about it, I'm no chemist but it seems to make sense. Hope it work like they say it will. . .

On the downside, just checked out the Changing World Technologies website. Brian Appel helped build the Ticketmaster monopoloy :-(

Hmmm, I can see it now. . .CWT signs all the major gas station to buy their oil, charges $1.02/gallon gas + $.41/gallon convenience fee + $1.00 handling charge
Be great if it works....PdxMark
