Delicious Waste Liquids of the Future (1982)

The 1982 book Our Future Needs (World of Tomorrow) by Neil Ardley envisions a world where liquid waste is converted into food.

A food factory of the future serves a desert city. Pipes bring waste liquids from industries in the city to the factory, where they are converted into foods by bacteria in tanks. Solar panels capture the Sun's rays to provide heat for the food-manufacturing processes in the factory.

A company called" REL="nofollow">GreenFuel has been doing this for" REL="nofollow">a couple years now at MIT. Granted the "food" isn't for "people" but it's the same basic concept.
