A modern engineering miracle

Because of the world's growing population, it comes natural to reduce, reuse and recycle. For example the basic recycling process is very common in many US households - plastic bottles, aluminum cans, glass etc. But some ideas grow much wilder - for instance the Janicki's Omniprocessor which will soon provide drinking water to thousands of people in need!
What exactly is Janicki's Omniprocessor? Here is what Bill Gates says about it:


"I watched the piles of feces go up the conveyer belt and drop into a large bin. They made their way through the machine, getting boiled and treated. A few minutes later I took a long taste of the end result: a glass of delicious drinking water."
