I wonder if this will ever progress to something that can be used widely?

A very exciting idea though, being able to use such a safe and common waste product and convert it into power. I know at my house we get huge amount of waste paper - which we do recycle. But imagine if you could just go out back and chuck it in one of these and charge up a big battery to supplement your house power. Or save for emergency?

So they are developing a technology to use paper as a fuel source to power devices including those designed to eliminate the need to use the worlds paper resources...interesting.

Looking at the bigger picture it could probably be developed to work with all manner of plant waste.

Well unless Smith City or Harvey Norman are going to send an Ipad down the street for everyone to gaze at the advertisements each week, I would assume that as ever there will be a large amount of waste paper... 

Unless trying to utilize waste is a bad idea?
