Electricity From Urine Discovered By Four Young Girls
The four girls namely Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, and Faleke Oluwatoyin, all age 14, and Bello Eniola, 15 have created a generator that is able to produce electricity for six hours using a single liter of urine as fuel. Yes, It's from urine. The girls surprised everyone when their idea totally worked and is now being considered to be a great help to their community.
The generator was unveiled at Maker Faire in Lagos, Nigeria and for some who is clueless or in deep shock to know how a Urine-powered generator works, here's how:
- 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.
