An estimate of 4,375,000 tonnes of CO2eq emissions will be avoided per year as a result of
this activity. The five new micro distillery plants are estimated to produce at least 10,000
liters per day of ethanol and consumed in replacement of kerosene, firewood and charcoal. The
activity has two sources of avoided emissions: the direct avoided emissions and the energy
saving in the process of ethanol production. In addition, once the ethanol is produced by the
commercialization of these new technologies in Nigeria, a large decrease in CO2 emissions is
Other areas include:
• Minimizing the environmental impact, through an activity which wastes are all
reused, and using a fuel that does not emit pollutants;
• Decreasing the deforestation caused by users of the wood stoves;
• Reducing the levels of domestic pollution, by encouraging the use of the biofuel
stoves, replacing the traditional wood-fired stoves;
• Reducing the impacts of the rural exodus in the urban areas;
• Adopting other domestic uses for ethanol, such as flashlights, energy generators,
• Recovering of degraded areas by the use of organic fertilizer;
• Switching to Ethanol Biofuel and Solar lantern will reduce the risks faced by
millions still depend dent on fossil fuel. We have practically increased energy security in
the communities where we work.
Community engagement was sought when planning and developing the activity - a major factor to
the level of our achievement today is the fact that we were able to create energy and system
that people can
Poverty alleviation, including tackling root causes of poverty, injustice and discrimination:
With more than 8,000 Green ambassadors and some other 36,000 customers, our model in six
months led many beneficiary and partners out of poverty while giving power to them to own,
generate and sell energy to others.
Improvement in the quality of life, including through education, health, security and a
healthy environment. The center of our activity is to place emphasis on education and
economic empowerment for our customers and Green Ambassadors.
With over 30,000 families and still growing, we are making energy access free and accessible
to those that need it most.
Many green forests and tress have been cut down for firewood; kerosene scarcity and spills
are often experienced while today, biofuel has become the fastest growing energy to the
Over 8,000 jobs have been created in six months.
The quality of health of local households has improved.
Our activity today is no longer a demonstration; we have proven that biogel fuel is possible
and sustainable. We are currently developing micro gel plants across the country. Today, we
only have two plants in Lagos and Ogun State. These plants are serving our entire network
across the country.
However, transporting our packaged gels is expensive; we hope to overcome this by continuing
to build more micro gel plants in cities and communities where we operate.
Success in effective adoption of renewable energy products in a developing nation is Market
Education and Incentive rather than flooding the market with products that will never be
consumed as the cost of marketing, distribution and management of such models will quickly
kill the company therefore its unsustainable.
What we have done having played in both renewable energy technology development and marketing
for more than five years is to allow an organic growth integration of the market while
investing in training, support and incentivizing our Green Ambassadors who make this happen
for us without being on our payroll.
Rather than rushing to the market to sell millions of liters of our biogel fuel, we decided
to segment and rely on a social one on one referral introduction of our products to customers
( We have concentrated on allowing someone to introduce our biogel and stove to another
thereby giving power to the people while we continue to provide superior support, incentive
and leadership to the way it expands and grow) What we have observed is that people will
continue to use the fuel based on the recommendation of their friend and therefore re orders
more from the same friend or Simply becomes a distributor as well and gradually expanding our
network of users.
