4 African Girls Have Created a Generator…

Four African girls have created a generator that produces electricity for six hours using a single liter of urine as fuel.The generator was unveiled at last week’s Maker Faire in Lagos, Nigeria, by the four teens Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, and Faleke Oluwatoyin, all age 14, and Bello Eniola, 15.

So how exactly does the urine-powered generator work?

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.
