The Gates Foundation is backing a machine that can solve two pressing problems at once. It transforms faeces into clean water.

Developed by Seattle-based engineering firm Janicki Bioenergy, the machine burns faeces at a temperature so hot that there's no nasty smell. It meets all the emissions standards set by the U.S. government.

The machine also generates electricity - more than enough to power itself.
