A Urine Powered Generator. An amazing accomplishment by four brilliant girls. The girls are are Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15).

  • 1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.

  • The system works like this:

    • Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen.
    • The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
    • The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
    • This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.

This incredible innovation is brought to you by four totally badass young African women. Congratulations ladies - you are literally putting the power in girlpower!

To Be Young, Gifted, and Black: The story of these young geniuses is being belittled and ignored because it doesn’t fit in with the conservative and liberal narratives of a savage, war-torn, in-need-of-a-white-savior African continent. “Self-sufficient geniuses who are young, black, and, woman, from an African country? Impossible!”
