    [size=13pt]Urine turned into hydrogen fuel [/size]

    02 July 2009


    US researchers have developed an efficient way of producing hydrogen from urine - a feat that could not only fuel the cars of the future, but could also help clean up municipal wastewater.

    That's the key...there have been numerous attempts and published results about using seawater as a fuel to run an engine. But the amount of energy expended to get the results makes it totally inefficient.
