UPDATED: What You need to know about Made in Aba, bio fuel stove

A Few days ago, we published a story about a stove that operate by a fuel generated by cassava leaf. We managed to get in touch with the original source of the report.

In chat with Mr. Obinna Chukwuezie, Editor in Chief of Community Stories, who attended the Innovation Platform Workshop in Keffi, Nasarawa State, on Thursday, October 20, 2016,
which was organised by the Agricultural Transformation Support Programme, phase one (ATASP-1) under the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

He told us about how everything went down on the Agricultural Workshop, according to him, The guys who invented the stove, are based in Umuahia, while their fabricator is based in Aba.

Speaking further, he said; "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."

Also, The chairman of the Agricultural Innovation Platform, Kalu Ichie Kalu who spoke at the Innovation Platform Workshop, described the product as "an credible alternative to kerosene, firewood and gas."

Meanwhile, Mr. Uche one of the inventors revealed that 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".
