Pyro Power Africa
The project is using agricultural waste residues to generate electricity for household and industrial use in Nigeria.
The project is also addressing the problem of inadequate electricity in off-grid communities in a way that improves livelihoods, standards and their overall productivity.
The project addresses three sectors of activity which require massive improvements in Nigeria.
During the project 7,800 REA Surveyed Off-Grid Sites, along with 150 potential client locations, visible on the map of Nigeria, were assessed to confirm their suitability for a Pyrochemy installation.
A representation of current Nigerian off-grid communities.
Nigeria is the world’s largest producer of Cassava. We tested residues from this crop waste and found they provide an ideal Pyrochemy feedstock. Using this abundant agricultural waste will improve the livelihoods of rural Nigerian farmers and improve the environment.
