Project Gaia coordinates donation of 23,000 liters of ethanol to kick off Nigerian clean cooking

In Nigeria, Project Gaia, Inc. announced a donation of 23,000 liters of ethanol from ADM to assist with the commercial scale-up of ethanol stoves in Lagos, Nigeria. This commercial scale-up follows a successful pilot study conducted in Lagos in 2018-19 by Project Gaia and Forte Oil, now Ardova PLC, funded by the Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCO) and the African Development Bank. Fuel for the pilot study was provided by UNIKEM Industries, Ltd., which handled the logistics of the ADM donation of ethanol to Project Gaia.

The donation from ADM represents 92,000 meals cooked for a family of five people. Expressed another way, it represents a year’s worth of cooking for 84 families or 420 individuals. A liter of ethanol provides more than a day of cooking for a five-member family.
