Hlumelo Marepula, a past pupil and alumnae committee member who is a master’s civil engineering candidate at the University of Cape Town, is exploring the feasibility of using urine to produce jet fuel with water as a by-product.

Hlumelo Marepula is breaking ground with her research under the supervision of associate professor Dyllon Randall from UCT’s department of civil engineering and the Future Water Institute. Her research later evolved to focus on turning human urine into fertiliser.
