Global Network for Environment and Economic Development Research


We are currently pioneering a renewable energy project in Nigeria dubbed "Cows to Kilowatts" which is abating water pollution, reducing indoor air pollution and creating cheap source of domestic energy (household cooking gas) for the urban poor through the installation of sustainable biogas plant from slaughterhouse waste. We are pioneering another project that is generating power for the urban poor in Nigeria from cassava factory waste.
