Photos:Nigerian teenage girls develop a urine-powered generator


Four girls – Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15) a urine-powered generator which was showcased at this year’s Maker Faire Africa.
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.
1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity, Amazing!

Along the whole way there are one-way valves for security, but let’s be honest that this is something of an explosive device… which is a little dangerous.
Great one girls.

People will start selling Urine like kerosene soon!
