Urine Luck: Scientists Create Power From Pee
Fuel cells which convert chemicals to power typically use platinum as a catalyst - but urine may provide a cheap alternative.

Carbon atoms recovered from human urine could be used to help generate power, scientists have said.

Fuel cells - which convert chemical energy into electricity – commonly use expensive platinum as a catalyst to trigger the reactions.

But according to a paper published in the Nature journal, "doped collections of carbon atoms" extracted from human urine offer a cheap and effective workaround.

The team's complex proof-of-concept shows they could use urine to make "highly porous carbon-containing heteroatoms such as nickel, sulphur, silicon and phosphorous from human urine waste as a single precursor for carbon and multiple heteroatoms."

The study was led by Jong-Sung Yu of Korea University, who pointed out the environmental benefits that come from treating urine as something to be utilised rather than discarded.

Fewer pollutants from urine would reach water bodies, for example, such as leftover drugs that have not been fully metabolised.

The researchers say that the atoms could also be suitable for battery applications.

The mind boggles as to how they are going to collect it! People used to pee in buckets and it was collected for making leather I believe Phew!

Here you go Tommy.   lol! 
Plans have been revealed for a £3.5 million renewable energy project on a farm in Silloth.
It would be the first anaerobic digester in the north of England and would produce electricity and heat from farm slurry.

What smashing up? You come up with some boring bullshit slur against the left in response to a renewable energy story, why are you even here? You don't debate, you don't make any intelligent points, you just sling shit.

That shit would be better used generating renewable energy -- or as an upgrade for your brains ...

Urine Luck: Scientists Create Power From Pee Empty Korea taking the piss

Would you drive a car that runs on URINE? Scientists create pee-powered fuel cells that generate energy for vehicles and homes

   Scientists plan to use carbon atoms found in urine to produce electricity
   They hope carbon will replace expensive platinum catalyst in fuel cells
   As well as fuel cells, carbon in urine could be used in battery applications
   Fuel cells are currently used to power cars and certain phone chargers
The world produces around 10.5 billion litres of urine each day – enough to fill 4,200 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

While most of us will label this as waste, scientists are hoping to use urine to someday generate power for vehicles, homes and cities.

A group of scientists from Korea University has outlined a plan to use carbon atoms recovered from human urine to produce cheap electricity.

Nobody's had to present any logic because you didn't, you just came in and started insulting people.

Ben, on this thread I posted a joke first of all, which was then directed back at me to the amusement of those supposedly insulted.


I didn't feel insulted, I thought it was funny and laughed.


Or should I have claimed they were ganging up on me and i was being bullied and got all teary....?



It's just a bit of banter.


Lighten up man!

But about the Piss power op, great!
I'm all for alternative sources of power generation.
And it also said that collecting the piss and processing it would help to stop the part metabolised drugs and other pharmaceuticals and chemicals flowing into the Eco system.
And this can only be a good thing.

NOW WE can add the term "logic" to that lexicon of words that Tommy simply has NO understanding of !
ALONG with : science, maths, engineering, technical, genetics, evolution, creation, Islam, Muslim, bigotry, Christianity - and the list goes on, and on, and on..
P.S. Hands up anyone who believes his tales of military service ~ if even half of them are true, then he would be more than a decade older than me. Probably closer to Nicko's age ?
MAYBE those senile old fools are sitting around the keyboard in their nursing home, having a laugh at believing they're putting one over on everyone online..  ::fighty!"":   ::fishffight::   ::drnkpst:: 
Hands up anyone who ever heard me talk about any military service...????
Oh, that's right... I have never claimed any militarm service because I have never served in the military!!!
Looks like fleakeeper is the senile old fool who really doesn't know what he is talking about!
Plus he's already said he put me on ignore months ago so It's funny that he can be so sure that what I'm saying is rubbish!!!
And again he cannot challenge me directly on anything I've said, so just resorts to unfounded insults....
