Phone out of juice? Researchers can recharge with urine (page 2)

Engineers at Bristol University have developed a microbial fuel cell (MFC) that turns organic matter, in our case urine, into electricity. The fuel cell is equipped on a mobile charger, and its creators envision the device being implemented in various other applications that can recycle urine. Restaurants, bars and various other buildings that employ public toilets might [...]A phone charger that’s powered by urine is a post from ZME Science. (c) ZME Science - All Rights Reserved.
