Statistics show that in Nigeria, 112 million people still cook with fire wood, kerosene, and traditional bio fuel with more than 90% of this number made up by rural dwellers. 90% more wood than necessary is burnt which has contributed to the buildup of green house gases, deforestation, and deforestation. Even more worrying, according to The World health organization (WHO) 95,300 annual deaths occur in Nigeria as a result of diseases and complications that arise from smoke inhalation and tens of thousands of young people and women are at risk of suffering serious health consequences as a result of their direct contact with traditional biofuel and wood smoke, sometime inhaling smoke particles 20 times higher than the maximum recommended amounts advised by the WHO.
This state of affairs is no longer acceptable. The need for a unified fuel and energy program/initiative focused on affordable solutions for all Nigerians has never been more important and the solution is clean, cost effective, and available in abundance – Liquefied petroleum Gas (LPG)
Readily available source of clean and cost effective alternative cooking fuel exists – Liquefied
Petroleum Gas (LPG) with gas reserves estimated at 185 trillion cubic feet
LPG cooking fuel is superior to almost all available fuels with a 85% energy efficiency rate
Other LPG domestic applications to be promoted and developed including:
LPG motor fuel and LPG refrigeration
ACCESS Nigeria is an action based initiative seeking to create sustainable and lasting solutions to Nigeria’s energy crisis.
