Japanese professor lighted the LED lamp with urine
A Japanese professor created a new breakthrough in the laboratory when he lit the LED for several hours with a small amount of urine.
The inventor of this breakthrough fuel source is Mr. Keiichi Kaneto, visiting professor at Osaka Institute of Technology. Professor Keiichi conducted this experiment in the hope that people could apply it in extreme conditions such as mountain climbing or use during a disaster.
In fact, urine can produce energy thanks to the urea content available in it. Many reports indicate that urea contains hydrogen - an essential ingredient for fuel cells.
Professor Keiichi conducted this experiment in the hope that people could apply it in extreme conditions such as mountain climbing or use during a disaster.
"Although energy can brighten the LED bulb in this case, it should be noted that the method cannot be used to promote the effectiveness of chemical reactions," said Professor Keiichi.
He also created a net about 1 millimeter thick. This grid is covered with a plastic on the fabric containing copper and nickel alloys, which can generate electricity.
Thus, small blue LEDs can be lit with just a few drops of urine on it. It could also be enough to illuminate a person's hand in the dark when four nets were assembled into one.
“I hope the available fuels will be useful in harsh environments, such as in natural disasters. If the fabric is made of carbon fiber with high electrical conductivity, the power output may increase ”.
“It's not just an idea of using available materials and plastic to create energy that can be used anytime, anywhere, by anyone. With a few improvements, it can be used in many different ways, ”said the professor.
In addition to urine, fuel cells can also generate electricity using drops of orange or lemon juice.
