Could Urine Be Tomorrow's Oil?


www.sync-blog.com

British scientists have found a way to turn urine into electricity.

Urine used to be the flavour of the month – literally, sometimes. In the dim and distant past, urine was used to flavour ale and glaze pastries, as a floor cleaner and as a source of saltpeter for gunpowder. People even used fermented pee – or lant – as a breath freshener...

....With an annual global production rate of trillions of litres, this is a technology that could help change the world.

Pee Power



Think of it - trillions of gallons of liquid waste turned into usable electricity. Move over Tesla.

Equally important, all those drugs and pharmaceuticals in everyone's pee no longer will end up in our rivers, ground water and oceans - they'll be burned - and we'll get to breathe the residues.

Chances are good the airborne pharmaceutical concentrations won't be as high as in our water - we might kill a few birds but we'll save a LOT of fishies - PLUS, all those welfare recipients who've had their benefits unfairly pulled just might be reinstated.

The list of attractions just goes on and on.

I don't think my boyfriend would enjoy me using fermented pee as a breath freshener.

Trillions of litres - that is insane.

Pregnant women will live in communes for nine months and supply the whole country.

Essentially ammonia for power gen concept. urina is ammonia NH3

Why urine.cyanobacteria can do it very effectively and efficiently.our atmosphere is 3000 trillion tons nitrogen. We have water.

Russian govt biofuel research conclusion was:

1) ammonia using photosynthetic cyanobacterium
2) Butanol production via biomass .
3)butanol production via photosynthetic cyanobacterium via smokestacks of gas plants.


are most viable .

Hahaha! Sorry - first thing that popped in my head.


No matter how much I tell my boyfriend we could be pioneers in 'urine power' - I doubt I could convince him to knock me up once.. let alone repeatedly!


Someone should contact the Duggar family.

Seems like we are being bombarded from a thousand different angles with alternative (almost) free energy. I love feeling like I'm living in a generation that will make human evolutionary history.

And Pee Power makes SO much more sense than using valuable cropland to grow biofuels. (For example.)

Me2. Now all we need to do is demand that these alternatives be developed and used. ...Enough with the profiteers deciding how to divvy up the spoils.

The headline link is inactive but the Guardian one is still good

'Pee power' is possible

In the East it is thought that drinking your own urine is very beneficial for the body. A lot of athletes and UFC fighters do it as well.

If this works I'll be flush with cash!

How little energy did they actually produce? It certainly would be great if we could power things off of urine. Cheapen up energy costs, help ease our environmental impact, give us excuses to drink copious amounts of alcohol...
