Sewage processing

Mix it up in a tanker, ship it to Africa et voila! Fertiliser

Instead of shipping raw or semi-processed sewage out to see, pump it into an oil-tanker size ship, mix it up well, pump good bacteria into the mix to assist the break-down process, siphon off the methane, sell the methane, arrive in some poor dry country and pump out tonnes of nicely processed fertiliser - probably...

Which can be used to fertilise green areas or perhaps can be used to push back the desert.

       This is already baked, short of the shipping it to Africa part.

       Hey, aren't they short on prescription medication in Africa? Two birds, one stone.

       Better this than sewage precession.

       <green piece> Run the ship's engines on the methane produced, rather than burn it on delivery.

       Of course if you figure out how to build a processor from sewage instead of silicon crystals, that's another story.
