Fuel from beer, wine and tequila waste? We’re one step closer to the Mr. Fusion becoming a reality. Guess that makes sense because Doc Brown had the contraption on his DeLorean when returning from 2015, which, scarily, isn’t too far off.

Here’s a bit more info about Costco composting, which I wrote about on Wednesday. While headed in the right direction, they’re only separating organics at a few California stores. The best part is that the food scraps are sent to a worm composter, whose wigglers create a fertilizer sold in some Costco locations.
