Now a urine-powered miniature fuel cell that can charge a smartphone 20.4.2016 DNA: Opinion
A group of researchers at the University of Bath, in Great Britain have developed a urine-powered miniature fuel cell that's already capable of recharging a smartphone. The device is just 25 square millimeters and uses a carbon catalyst created from the protein commonly found in an egg white -- in other words, biomass. The urine passes through it and thanks to the ‘electric' bacteria present in the substance, electricity is generated that can be sent to a battery for storage or used to directly power an electrical device. A single fuel cell can generate 2 watts per cubic meter, that's sufficient for topping up a smartphone, but the cells can be stacked for boosting electrical output. Lecturer in the University of Bath's Department of Chemical Engineering and corresponding author, Dr Mirella Di Lorenzo, said: "If we can harness the potential power of this human waste, we could revolutionize how electricity is generated." There are already numerous renewable sources of energy available to those wanting to ...
