We all know how urine or pee has been used for one way or another. The most common of which is perhaps as a sort of fertilizer for plants. But with the continued demand for alternative energy sources, hearing about energy generated from urine is something that is surely interesting.
Although this may not be the first time, at least the idea is now expanding bit by bit. What makes it more laudable is the fact that the whole thing was conceptualized by a group of students over in Nigeria, teens aged between 14 and 15 years old.
The pee-powered generator should come in handy, especially at times of disasters. Apparently the process includes removing valuable hydrogen from the urine and then isolating it for use as another energy source.
Although the system produces six hours of electricity, it is not a stand-alone generator, as it requires electricity to initially power the electrolytic cell.
