Four Nigerian Girls Invent Urine Powered Generator
I had always thought urine should have some type of combustion potentials . These four Nigerian girls just brought my thought into reality , they went ahead to invent a generator that runs on URINE! The girls: Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15) presented their invention at Maker Faire Africa in Lagos. 1 Liter of urine would give you 6 hours of electricity. With some tweaking her and there, we might soon say good riddance to the bad rubbish of PHCN. These young girls should be encouraged. More photos and how the system works when you read more...
The The system works like this:
*Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen.
*The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
*The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
*This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.
