South Korea has created a toilet that pays its users




In South Korea, they created a toilet that allows visitors to earn money, writes The Straits Times.

The author of the development was a Professor of urban and environmental engineering of the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) Cho Jae-Wonu.

The eco-friendly toilet was named BeeVi, it was installed in the building of the Institute.

The toilet sends the feces to an underground tank, where they are processed into methane, which enters boilers and fuel cells to generate heat and electricity. This fuel is used for the power supply of the Institute building. Such an invention reduces water consumption.

The scientist also invented a virtual currency called Gogol. For using the toilet, a visitor receives 10 such electronic coins per day, which can be spent on coffee, food, books, and other goods on campus.

Cho Jae-Weon noted that a person produces about 500 grams of feces every day, which can be converted into 50 liters of methane. This gas can give 0.5 kilowatt-hours of electricity or be used to drive a car for a distance of about 1.2 km.
