World’s first urine-powered fuel cells to offer pee power to people


Going Green? I guess everyone can now get a job standing in line at your nearest restroom. How much per gallon?

This could literally be called pee power to the people-researchers have figured out a way to make the world’s first urine-powered fuel cells.

Chemistry postdocs Shanwen Tao and Rong Lan at Heriot-Watt University’s School of Engineering and Physical Sciences in Edinburgh are turning pee into electricity and clean water with a prototype fuel cell system. I had heard about pee-power for robots, but not pee-power for everyone. SOURCE
