Hydrogen Production Taking The Piss

Recommended Posts

Thats great so farmers can raise animals for food and take the piss as well.

Q. What do you call an agricultural vehicle powered by piss?

A. A urinary tractor

So Mr. 'Cells' it seems there are cost effective ways of liberating hydrogen for use.

Presumably you’re joking.

Just in case you are not, try to calculate the amount of urine we would need per car.

It is one of those crazy ideas that might work small scale but will not scale up.

Plus it being easier to liberate the hydrogen in that molecule doesn’t mean the process will be cheaper.

You have a habit of making absolute statements without the slightest evidence to back them up. Why can't it be scaled up? It is a cheaper process as it requires a fraction of the energy to liberate the hydrogen. We already use animal waste products (manure) for agriculture so I don't see why collecting their urine on a large scale would be difficult.

Just for the record I think BBC is a fool.

But in support of the above we also use human sewage in this country to make methane to burn in power stations.

So eventhough it may not be viable today a bit of the old science magic dust sprinkled on this may make it viable.

Also I have been reading the other thread and whilst I support independent thinking and challenging the norm, I can not help think why is every major car manufacturer making a hydrogen car when a single being named Cells has worked out its is pants where they can not?

Edit: to the spelling police - Drank too much wine to convert in to piss for the hydrogen Fanny magnet outside, will edit tomorrow when sober.

I think it might work on a small scale, but it won't make a vas deferens to global warming.

You might want to consider the negative effects on agricultural production levels. also, whilst I find much of cell's pronouncements on these matters to be iffy to say the least, it is nevertheless true that there are many ways to produce energy. The big problem is always in terms of speed of flow and knock on environmental consequences.

I could provide you with several novel ways of producing energy with a positive EROEI right now. None of them would serve our global needs though in terms of speed of flow and so are irrelevant.

If you can provide evidence of the the scalability of this process then it is raised above the noise. but not unless.

To clarify: the issues of importance are:

  • Absolute level of supply

  • EROEI

  • Speed of flow

  • Environmental impacts

All of the above need to be satisfied

I think it comes down to the question of how much hydrogen you could release from a pint of piss......?

Well the technology is cuming soon so we'll see.
