This write up presents the report of the research on alternative technology for cooking vis-à-vis energy. Equally the fabrication of one of the adopted ones around the world is reported. Biomass constitutes the biggest source of energy in rural Nigeria. However, its utilization in the domestic sector is mostly inefficient and polluting, resulting in resource wastage. Traditional cook stoves, predominantly used in the households for domestic cooking, have been a major contributor to these ill effects. Improved cook stove programmes implemented in the developing countries of the world, like China, India, Kenya, etc. attempt to address these problems. Biomass gasification appears to have a significant potential in Nigeria for domestic cooking applications. A number of gasification-based cooking systems, which are more efficient than traditional stoves and are almost smoke-free, have been developed and demonstrated recently to highlight the potential benefits of introducing them in developing countries like Nigeria.
