Video: Cell phone runs on urine, converts waste to energy.

Technology that converts waste into something really useful like electricity is amazing.

One of those innovative technologies is Microbial fuel cell technology.

Scientists at Bristol Robotics Laboratory placed “bugs” inside the fuel cell to eat the fuel (urine). The offset is electricity….and results indicate urine is a great fuel source for this waste to energy conversion process.

The video tells a great story about the potential for this technology.

“The concept has been tested and it works – it's now for us to develop and refine the process so that we can develop MFCs to fully charge a battery.” (Photo Credit: BristolUWE)
