The Redmond-based tech giant is spending about $5.5 million in research development on the pilot plant, which will be at the Dry Creek Water Reclamation Facility in Cheyenne, Wyo.I bet the economic development guys are really patting themselves on the back over this development. Ya know guys, Wyoming produces over 40% of the nations coal, we've got the countries newest and cleanest coal fired power plant. We have lots of natural gas and uranium. We are one of the few energy independent states in the nation. Apparently we crap more energy than everyone else too. To be fair Cheyenne is the state capital and most of our bureaucrats are there, so they probably have more than enough useless turds floating around to power anything you want.
Poop Power. Power to the Pooper. Power from the Pooper. I can see the headlines now. Leave your suggestion in the comments.
