Possibly one of the more unexpected products at Maker Faire Africa this year in Lagos is a urine powered generator, created by four girls. The girls are Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15).

1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.



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.

Ingenious.

Nice one, I wonder how much the output power is. "6 hours of electricity" is bit vague.

I guess it really just depends on how much watts the generator can put out.

Not sure if you thought that would have any effect on what I said or not. I wholly believe it's being reported, just don't believe they actually designed or possibly even 'created' it.

I guess because being able to drink the water then use the urine afterwards is more useful in parts of Africa.

urine is filtered also, sterile until the very end at least so that might help

Urine turned into hydrogen fuel

it turns out you need about 1/3 of the energy to break down urea compared to plain ol' h2o
