Four African Girls Invented Urine Generator

    Yes, 14-year-old Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin and 15-year-old Bello Eniola created a urine-powered electricity generator.

    In the city of Lagos, which is located in Nigeria, passes Maker Faire Africa. This is more than an ordinary startup exhibition: here new technologies are not only demonstrated and discussed, but also find a ticket to life.
    Four girls, instead of inventing another super-social-cloud network, came up with a way to get electricity from urine.

    How it works:

    Urine is placed in an electrolyzer that releases hydrogen from it. Then, hydrogen passes through a water filter and enters a gas cylinder. Moisture is completely removed from the gas cylinder using a borax from hydrogen. This purified hydrogen is placed in the generator, and as a result, 1 liter of urine gives 6 hours of electricity.

    It remains only to wish them good luck. I hope the invention finds its investors, and science will open its doors to girls.
