Four African girls don create generator wey fit use wee-wee “Urine, that is” to produce electricity. One litre of wee-wee go produce 6-hour supply of electricity.
Dem showcase the generator for Maker Faire in Lagos, Nigeria, a week ago.
The girl-innovators are teens Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, and Faleke Oluwatoyin, all age 14, and Bello Eniola, 15.
No ask me how the thing go work. Go find the girls.
But Yahoo News fit help small:”
- 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.
And as for delivering the fuel itself? Well, we’ll leave that up to the consumer.”
Hoping the right quarters go pick this up.
