The Associated Press reported on a new technology
that can extract drinkable water from manure, according to researchers at Michigan State University. The university's McLanahan Nutrient Separation System, as it’s officially called, will soon be available to be used by farmers for their livestock.
As is noted in a New York Daily News article
about this, “about 90 percent of manure is water. The system now extracts 50 gallons of water from each 100 gallons of manure.”
This technology will be especially helpful for areas of the country that deal with drought.
