'Li­quid gold'

Vocable (Anglais) - - 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 spe­cial­ly­de­si­gned 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.”
