£1 Fuel Cell Creates Electricity From Urine

A miniature fuel cell costing as little as a £1 can generate electricity from urine. The microbial fuel cell could be a lifeline for people in remote areas – creating a renewable and carbon-neutral way of generating power. The technology was developed by researchers at the University of Bath, Queen Mary University of London and the Bristol Bioenergy Centre. The fuel cells use natural biological processes to turn organic matter – like urine – into electricity. When urine passes through the microbial fuel cell, bacteria inside it generates electricity.
