Scientists and Engineers from Aba, Abia State have developed a bio stove that runs on bio gel produced from cassava leaves.
"The product is an credible alternative to kerosene, firewood and gas.
"It's clean energy. One of the innovation in the stove is that 100% of the raw materials are locally-sourced, while the fuel is made from cassava leaf.
"The price of the stove is N5, 500, while a litre of the fuel is N200. A litre of the fuel burns for 6 hours.
"The challenge is that production is still manual, so they will need support to mechanise our production processes and produce like 25,000 litres per day."
