'Liq­uid gold'

Vocable (All English) - - Sur Le Vif -

The world’s first brick made from hu­man urine has been cre­ated. This bio-brick was pro­duced by stu­dents from Cape Town, who mixed urine col­lected from spe­cially-de­signed male uri­nals with sand and bac­te­ria. Dr Dyl­lon Ran­dall, the Univer­sity of Cape Town lec­turer who su­per­vised the project, said that urine, usu­ally con­sid­ered as waste, was liq­uid gold and would en­able sci­en­tists to create “a truly sus­tain­able con­struc­tion ma­te­rial.”
