Innovative students create bricks made from urine

25th Oct 2018

Students are often accused of taking the p**s but a group from the University of Capetown has done just that and is using the urine to create bricks.

We love any stories about the use of waste to create valuable resources and this could be a real winner. These bricks don’t need to be baked in a kiln so there is a huge energy saving with attendant reductions in carbon emissions.
