You can now power your generator with URINE!!!

Four girls, Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15) in Lagos have made history so to say by creating a generator powered by urine.

The youngsters have even appeared on BBC... We have talents we don't know in Nigeria o!

The device can provide up to 6 hours of electricity with just one litre of urine.

Before you buy a Gee-Pee tank to start storing your urine and that of your friends and family, screech, take a halt and read how that can be done before you blow someone up...



The system works this way:
  • 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.
 I dare-say this is an innovation! Can this invention be fine-tuned to serve as an alternative energy supplier in Nigeria?
