Abstract:This project determined whether waste water could be used to generate electricity using a small turbine generator, and to determine what diameter pipe would generate the most. A small computer fan was used as the generator. Three different diameter pipes were tested (32mm 50mm and 75mm). The 50mm pipe created the most electricity.
