20. ‘Liquid Gold’: The Bio-brick Made out of Human Urine 10 p.

Read the text carefully and fill in each gap in English according to the clue.

Students in South Africa have created first brick made from human urine. The bio-brick was produced by students from Cape Town, who collected urine from specially designed male urinals at the university’s engineering building and mixed it with sand and bacteria.

Bio-bricks are made in containers room temperature, removing the need for high temperature ovens. Nitrogen and potassium, are important for commercial fertilisers, are created as by-products during the process.

“In this example you take something that is a waste and make many products from it. You can use the same process for any waste product. It’s about rethinking things,” said Dr Dyllon Randall, a senior lecturer water quality engineering at the University of Cape Town, who supervised the project.

The idea of using urea to grow bio-bricks has previously been tested in the US using synthetic products, but UCT master’s student Suzanne Lambert is the first to use real human urine to make a brick, the university.

Bio-bricks are created through a natural process, said Randall, similar to the way seashells . Loose sand, which has been mixed with bacteria that produces an enzyme called urease, is mixed with the urine. Urease breaks down the urea in the urine, producing calcium carbonate, which cements the sand into shape.

“If a client a brick stronger than a 40% limestone brick, you the bacteria to make the brick stronger by ‘growing’ it for longer,” said Randall.

The vast majority of the phosphorus present in the urine into calcium phosphate, which is important in fertilisers, but is no longer easily available.

“It is now possible to make a sustainable construction material, thanks to the progress we’ve made here at the University of Cape Town,” said Vukheta Mukhari, a civil engineering honours student who worked with Lambert.
