The idea belongs to Franco Lici and has already received the approval of Legambiente, an Italian non-profit environmental organization. Yellow fuel is environmentally friendly and almost 35% more economical than gasoline.
For the primary product does not require any costs. To fill the tank there is no need to look for a gas station: just drink a little water, which "stimulates diuresis", and stop for a while in the parking lot. Thus, an engine running on urine is a solution to the problem of expensive fuel. And this is not a joke: the idea (already successfully tested) belongs to a researcher from Sardinia, who, by the way, previously worked at the Fiat factory. The developer’s name is Franco Lici, and his highly environmentally friendly engine has already received support from the University of Sassari (dell'Università di Sassari) and has even been approved by independent experts from Legambiente.
It should be noted that the Sardinian entrepreneur has developed as many as two engines, both of which comply with all state standards. One engine is designed for vehicles, while the second is for domestic use: it can be connected to a lighting system or installed in a washing machine, water heater or dishwasher.
Constantly improving the system, Franco Lishi managed to eliminate the problems associated with the use of urine as a fuel. One of these problems - the formation of condensate and a large number of small polluting particles - was solved by installing a special filter made of pure sheep wool. And certainly Sardinian (solely in order to emphasize the fact that the design of the engine with low environmental impact was developed on this island).
Franco Lishi is ready to argue a lot and actively about green, or rather yellow, fuel: “The energy produced by urine is suitable not only for household appliances, but also for vehicles. It may well become an alternative to the classic types of fuel for cars, trucks ships. However, in the Italian state this is prohibited by law.
However, it is allowed to use various additives in the fuel, ”the Sardinian explains. - Therefore, we have developed a special transformer that allows the use of urine as an additive in the car’s engine. The experimental results are more than inspiring: gasoline cars save 35%, diesel cars 60%, and gas-powered vehicles save up to 80% on fuel costs. The owner of a small boat or fishing boat, in turn, can reduce diesel costs by up to 65%. "
Apart from saving money, the innovative engine also solves the smog problem: “At the final stage of the urine processing process, it turns into clean well water,” says Danielle Ducato, coordinator of the Green House C02.0 environmental project. “Water rich in nutrients that feed the earth. "
