This is wrong in so many ways. Nuff said.

Plasma Waste Processing

This is a pretty neat technology that could really revolutionize waste management on this planet.

The arc in the plasma plume within the vessel can be as high as 30,000 degrees Fahrenheit ... three times hotter than the surface of the Sun. When waste materials are subjected to the intensity of the energy transfer within the vessel, the excitation of the wastes' molecular bonds is so great that the waste materials' molecules break apart into their elemental components (atoms).

... and the biproducts?

The two principal byproducts of the Plasma Converter are a synthesis fuel gas called PCG ™ and an obsidian-like stone, which is non-toxic and non-leachable. Both are commodity products that offer the customer revenue potential. The PCG can be directly used for plant heating or cooling, to make electricity, or to desalinate water, as well as other uses. Additionally, the PCG can be used to make hydrogen or methanol. The obsidian-like stone can be sold to the construction and abrasives industries.

Keen! I want to clean out my garage, run it through this baby, and keep the stone as a souvenier! I wonder how much electricity the PCG can make - in other words, can this machine power itself with the waste it processes?

With gas prices continuing to shoot upwards, this kind of vehicle is looking more and more attractive.

Potentially charged in just 10 minutes, the ZAP-X will have a 350 mile range on a single “tank” of electrons and develop the equivalent of 644bhp, making its 155mph top-speed sound all too feasible. Four-wheel drive should hopefully keep that fancy body stuck to the road, too.

My only problem, is the color. I hope they have it bright corn-yellow, with green trim. I'm also wondering if there is enough head room in there for me... I need a lot of space for my corn shaped head.
