Go Green: Electric Generator Powered by Urine

Urine as Fuel

After a new invention by four Nigerian teenage school girls, it has been proved that anything is possible in the world. Thinking about an electric generator powered by urine really sounds great. It has the capacity to convert one liter of urine into six hours of electricity. At the Maker Faire Africa entrepreneur’s event in Lagos, all four invertors-14-year-old Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele, Faleke Oluwatoyin and 15-year-old Bello Eniola demonstrated their precious invention obtained by a resource, which is free, unlimited and easily obtainable.

As the urine is put into an electric cell, it divides urea into nitrogen, water and hydrogen. A water filter purifies the hydrogen and pushes it through a gas cylinder. After that, another gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, thereby removing all the moisture from the gas. The generator then uses the purified hydrogen to generate electricity.

Because of increasing pollution, there are enough requirements of environmentally friendly sustainable energy. Such a finding is very encouraging and motivates those who want to find out alternative source of energy. If four teenagers can do this now, then one can only imagine their future inventions.
