Summary

From health and environmental hazard to energy: create biogas plant to transform noxious cassava waste into low-cost off-grid energy for 2,250 poor families with organic fertilisers for poor farmers.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Nigeria contributes 25 percent to world cassava production with US$5 billion annual revenue however creates unprecedented health and environmental hazards. The project is abating pollution, mitigating greenhouse gas emission and improving ecosystem health through installation of bioreactor treating cassava waste and producing biogas driving microturbines for low-cost, safe and reliable off-grid energy for 2,250 poor families with environmentally safe organic organic fertilisers for poor farmers.

How will this project solve this problem?

Activities include design of energy systems and bioreactor with sand drying bed for organic fertilisers, installation of bioreactor, gas cleaning systems, microturbines and off-grid energy efficient lighting systems with compact fluorescent lamps.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will provide low cost, safe and reliable off-grid energy for 2,250 poor families for 15 years. Reduce infant mortality and indoor air pollution for13,500 children and provide organic fertilizer for 12,000 low-income farmers for 15 years.
