Using Pee to recharge your devices, can it be feasible

headset. earphonesArticle of the Day………ok so i haven’t got a piece of writing seven days a week, but if i get an opportunity I’ll post posts that I find fascinating. Lucky enough here’s one of these articles that I read and needed to share. If you enjoy it as much as me, please add one of those special social media likes, you know the one that tells everyone you loved something, rather then you sat on your arse and watched Television!

Scientists working at the University West of England (UWE) in Bristol, United kingdom, have found out one way to power a cell phone with Human pee.

The company have been capable of power a Samsung smart phone by putting the liquid through a cascade of microbial fuel cells. Using this method, enough energy may be produced to send text messages, browse the Net and even make a quick telephone call.

As outlined by the scientists responsible, the next phase is to completely charge the device with pee…I assume washing their hands immediately afterwards.

Dr. Ioannis Ieropoulos has labored for a long time with microbial energy cells; he’s thought to be an expert in harnessing If you adored this short article in addition to you would want to obtain more info relating to earpiece generously stop by our website. energy from abnormal sources. The possibe applications of his work are very appealing from an environmental standpoint.

Dr. Ieropoulos said, “We’re very excited as this is the world’s first, no-one has harnessed power from pee to try this so it’s an exciting finding. Using the final waste product as a source of power to produce electricity is almost as eco as it gets.” Eco-friendly tech is, apparently, the great doctor’s main area of appeal.

The microbial cells work as a energy converter, they turn the organic substance straight into electricity, via the metabolism of live microorganisms. The electrical power is the by-product of the microorganism’s natural life cycle, meaning that as they ‘eat’ the pee, they generate power the energy that powers the mobile. 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 a mobile battery has ever been charged using this process before.

There is, at present, no plans to market this tech on a huge scale, but perhaps someday we can be signing a ‘P’ mobile contract, the trick, as they are saying, might be pissistance.

PS – I’m apologetic about this one. The task and its implications are actually astounding. All credit to the UWE team. On the other hand, I constantly needed to do one to those ‘And Finally’ type stories and now I finally get to. Please forgive me, one and all.
