Scientists develop portable generator that turns trash into electricity

An interesting new prototype from Purdue:

A group of scientists have created a portable refinery that efficiently converts food, paper and plastic trash into electricity. The machine, designed for the U.S. military, would allow soldiers in the field to convert waste into power and could have widespread civilian applications in the future.

Besides the military uses mentioned, this could be very useful at large institutions such as schools and prisons. Even home use, if there's a lot of waste.
