Magic water!

Actually, it's a simple process. The result is eco-friendly, people friendly and really inexpensive. The machine used isn't cheap, but I'm going to bet that it pays for itself in short order, at least on the commercial scale.

Thanks to Jerry Pournelle for the link.

Update: I should have read faster and thought more before posting. My chemistry professor would have turned over in his grave, if he weren't still alive.

1 I could have told you that. There's no magic with electricity and salt water. I worked at a facility that did these reactions to the order of TONS of chlorine and caustic soda a day, and bleach, sodium hypochlorite, was a by-product. We need to ask the moonbats drooling over this "green" solution as to exactly why chlorine is a greenhouse gas when nasty ol' heavy industry makes it, but when an earth-shoe-wearing, patchouli-smelling moonbat makes it, it's all okay... TANSTAAFL, folks! MC

2 Pournelle is a strong science guy and he's usually not fooled. My mistake was taking his comment at face value instead of actually reading the article. The error would have been obvious. It's always nice to see other fan's of "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress". Whenever I throw out TANSTAAFL at work, most people give me a blank look in response. It's a real bummer.
