Did you ever think someone could use urine as fuel? These four African students did their best to prove their theory right and discover something incredible from their intelligence.
This is surely going to be of interest to each and every individual – four teenage girls found a way to use one liter of urine as fuel. They used urine in their generator and noticed electricity for six hours. To your surprise, three of them are only fourteen years old and their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, and Faleke Oluwatoyin; the fourth one is the fifteen years old Bello Eniola. All the four girls proudly displayed their invention at Maker Faire Africa in Lagos, Nigeria; this is an annual event hosted for all those with creative brains.
Here is how the generator words:
Urine is poured into an electrolytic cell that forces the separation of hydrogen, which goes into a filter for the sake of purification. The purified hydrogen reaches the gas cylinder that has liquid borax; this removes the moisture from the collected gas. Pure hydrogen is pushed into the generator, which then gives birth to electricity.
Is this a new idea?
The thought of using urine as an electricity producer is not new; however, the girls have put the thoughts into reality. The most wonderful thing about the process invented by them is that they have used all stuff that can be found easily at home.
Urine waste is too much on a daily basis, since it is natural. The thought and creation of the four girls is quite splendid for it is an elegant way to use the urine waste. Of course you have to put more energy to get the process working, but their idea can be used on a larger scale someday.
