A Urine Powered Generator

Possibly one of the more unexpected products at Maker Faire Africa this year in Lagos is a urine powered generator, created by four girls. The girls are Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15).

1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.

The system works like this:

  • 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.

Along the whole way there are one-way valves for security, but let’s be honest that this is something of an explosive device…

Some skepticism in the comment section, but I support these girls and hope they get the funding and recognition to perfect this device. It has the potential to be extremely beneficial worldwide, especially in emergencies.

Awesome! I hope they will get the funding. If not, it could definitely be a cause I would donate to.

Damn! This is a smart invention.Clap


This would be gladly used in the states too. I'm sure anyone who has suddenly been w/o power for an extended period of time would have no problem using this...I would like to think.

Someone needs to help them get a patent before someone steals the idea.

This would be useful when I visit my granny.  NEPA (I think that is the power company) stays cutting off power for days at a time.
