In as few as six months, new technology developed at Ohio University could use urine to power cars, homes, and personal electronic devices.
The process uses a nickle-based electrode to extract cheap, plentiful hydrogen from urine. The urine from a single cow could provide enough energy to supply 19 houses with hot water. Farms could be powered from their own waste which would in turn reduce pollution from waste and consumption of outside power resources.
The need for roadside potty stops might be a thing of the past if pee-derived fuel becomes a practical reality, something that was not considered seriously even a couple of years ago as the video above shows.
