If you have a cell phone is dead, and not near a power charger and then the last source of energy, which you can hope for – own urine. You can use it to charge low-power electrical gadgets and especially mobile phones, set up by British scientists.
Urine and not petrol
Scientists have figured out how to synthesize hydrogen from urine, and it is possible that in a few years, the column with the fuel at the pump will be connected directly … →
The world’s first working installation of recycling urine into electricity demonstrated Dr. Ioannis Ieropulos of Bristol robotics lab, a specialist in obtaining electricity from non-conventional sources. “One of the sources that keeps on giving, is our own urine. Passing it through a cascade of microbial fuel cells, we have learned to charge the cell phone Samsung. The beauty of this source is that we are not relying on the unpredictable nature of the wind or the sun and recycle waste into energy “, – said Ieropulos about his discovery.
Microbial fuel cells (Microbial Fuel Cells – MFC) – converters that allow recycle organic matter and directly receive electricity from it.
Doing this helps microorganisms similar to that live in the ground or in the human digestive tract.
“Russia is simply not playing”
In fact, why Russia lags behind in the field of renewable energy, and why Russian scientists do not create relevant innovations … →
When in the anode compartment without oxygen, these microbes detach electrons from the substrate supply and transmit tby-product of the natural life cycle of thesehem to the anode. Thus, the creation of the electromotive force is a microbes. Despite the fact that the development of microbial fuel cells have been conducted for 30 years in this area is protected by numerous patents to industrial applications, such as municipal wastewater treatment plants, it has not yet reached.
