From their article
Quote:A fuel cell, urine-powered vehicle could theoretically travel 90 miles per gallon. A refrigerator-sized unit could produce one kilowatt of energy for about $5,000, although this price is a rough estimate, says Botte.

Seems expensive for 1KW of energy. My electricity supplier can beat that price hands down per KWH, 11 pence (UK) per unit.

Wonder who runs after the cows with the collection buckets.

Didn't someone on the forum suggest using UREA a while back as an electrolyte?

Urine good company to laugh at that one. On the other hand, perhaps a sports stadium could recycle the urine, extract the hydrogen run it through a fuel cell and power the lights. Just a thought. Smile
