You can use your urine for a better use than a day when it calls for natural calls.
Instead, it is an important factor in the green office or in the new home.
One of the new findings for eco-friendly materials, South African University researchers created bricks using human species.
The world's first bio-fuels have a sustainable alternative to standard clay and concrete bricks.
From six to eight days, these prototypes have grown from the urine, using a similar pattern for the formation of papers.
Cape Town University students and a lecturer.
Last year's probability study started using synthetic urea, using a grant of government-run water research councils. Later, the human urine began to use the study.
"I did not know why we use urine to do the same thing," said Dallan Randall, one of the two students.
"The simplest answer is: & # 39; Yes, we can. & # 39;
A year later, they successfully created their first bio-gastrointestinal laboratory in a laboratory.
With the natural process known as microorganisms carbonate drug, they are made of brick, mold and bacteria brick.
The research is in its early years. So far 30 liters of urine (eight US gallon) urine is required to produce a brick made by a special urinating urine in the university in a university.
"We basically make the first bio-brick from the first urine," said Randall.
"This process is amazing, because we've just grown bricks at room temperature."
The first three bricks are displayed. They are lightweight blocks with less than one basic limestone.
Copying the natural processes of nature
Susan Lambert, a student of a civil engineering masters, wonders how "natural processes of nature" were created to create a sustainable building.
"The procedure is to adopt a method of cement that makes the parole process and the natural processes practiced," she said.
The bricks produced using ordinary bricks or clay are dried out, where they dried up to 1,400 degrees Celsius (2,500 degrees Fahrenheit), creating a large emissions of carbon dioxide.
By contrast, the bio-brick "urease" is through the bacteria that produce an enzyme through the loose sand that the seeds grow.
Urea also reacts to the urea's urine to produce bonds made of sand by a sand, such as a cement.
This material can not be designed with modern temperature and greenhouse gas emissions.
"I consider it as a uranium-like waste streak and use it for a fully sustainable process," said Randall.
The perfume does not fall if you are concerned about the sweet smell of the urine flowing out of the walls. The smell of a strong ammonia that comes from the urine falls when it dries up for a few days.
The bricks can be added to the bricks as per the requirement of the brick building and the products manufactured so far "are as strong as the usual bricks found in the market."
The UI is now manufactured by bio-brick, but they use synthetic forms of urine.
However, they are the first to use natural waste.
Will organic-copper supplant a standard clay or concrete rivals a day?
The main factor is price, but this early stage of development did not make an effort to research expenditures.
Randall warned, "We are far from perfectly monetary reforms," but there are plenty of possibilities for efficiency.
"Now we need to build a standard brick from 20 to 30 liters, it sounds like very much, but remember that 90% urine is actually water," said Randall.
"We look forward to reducing the amount of urine needed to make a brick, and I assure you will get better results over the next few years." NVG
