So i found this short article on the net and i understand that just posting it like a whole article isn't the right thing, I got consent from the original writer and read up how to curate articles, so this is it.......i thought this was fascinating as it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working in the industry.
Scientists functioning at the University West of England (UWE) in Bristol, United kingdom, have found out a way to power a mobile phone with Human urine.
The team have been able to recharge a Samsung smart phone by putting the fluid through a cascade of microbial energy cells. With this method, enough power has been generated to send text messages, browse the World-wide-web and even make a short telephone call.
According to the scientists in charge, the next phase is to fully power the phone with pee...Seemingly cleaning their hands directly afterwards.
Dr. Ioannis Ieropoulos has worked for ages with microbial fuel cells; he's believed to be a guru in harnessing energy from unusual sources. The potential applications of his work are very interesting from an environmental point of view.
Dr. Ieropoulos said, "We're very excited as this is the world's first, no-one has harnessed power from urine to do this so it is an interesting finding. Using the final waste product as the supply of energy to produce electricity is nearly as eco as it gets." Eco-friendly tech is, apparently, the great doctor's main area of interest.
The microbial cells work as the energy converter, they take the organic substance straight into electricity, via the metabolism of live microorganisms. The electricity is the by-product of a microorganism's natural life phase, meaning that as they 'eat' the pee, they create power the energy that powers the phone. Now that is what we call 'pee as you go'.
Toilet humour aside, the team have engineered a world first, as nothing as large as the mobile battery has ever been charged using this method before.
You'll notice, nowadays, no plans to market this tech on a sizable scale, but maybe someday we could be signing a 'P' mobile contract, the trick, as they say, shall be pissistance.
PS – I'm apologetic about this one. The work and its implications are actually amazing. All credit to the UWE team. However, I always wanted to do one to those 'And Finally' type stories and now I conclusively get to. Please forgive me, one and all.
