Trash Powered Electricity Generator

Scientists at Purdue are working on a portable refinery that converts food and other trash to fuel, which in turn powers an electric generator. Their current model is about the size of a van. It would be interesting to be able to run a house off trash, and possibly even sell some power back to the grid. Now they need to work on a portable version that you could take camping. That would be serious coolness. (HT: Slashdot)
