The chairman, who spoke at the Innovation Platform Workshop organised by the Agricultural Transformation Support Programme, phase one (ATASP-1) under the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in Keffi, said the product is a 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,” he said.

The chairman while soliciting for support hinted that the only challenge faced presently is that production is still manual though the product has already made a rousing market entrance. He said they need support to mechanise production processes in order to produce about 25,000 litres per day.
