Good News Day!

Sour Grapes? Who knew! Turning water into wine into clean energy!

According to MSNBC's
Technology and Science section,
The Napa Wine Company
in Oakville, California is creating
clean energy from the bacterial
microbes of it's wine-producing wastewater.

With the use of electricity, wastewater fed to
microbes breaks down into hydrogen gas.

The company's goal: To create more energy
from the wastewater than would currently
be needed to treat it making the company
a "net power producer."

The winery hopes to use the clean energy to
power cars and run systems.

Who knows? Maybe wine will power the world!
