GENERAL INTRODUCTION

THE VOICES FROM THE FOREST SUSTAINABLE RESOURCES BUSINESS CONSORTIUM, NIGERIA (founded September 2007); Is an enterprise network incorporating interests as diverse as from the media, performing arts and music, business development and environmental conservation.

PROJECTS

Since its formation in September 2007 the consortium has engaged in the research and developments of following projects:

ADVOCACY AND AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS

Studio Recording of Album on thematic songs and commentaries:

Bata'De, The Voices From The Forest. April 2008

Public advocacy and campaign presentation at major stakeholder's forum:

Nigeria Conservation Foundation Annual Dinner And Award Night, Friday 28

November, 2008

Organic waste recycling and development

Bush regeneration

Bioremediation

Landfill gas production

Effluent /Waste water to gas recycling

COOKING STOVES AND ORGANIC FUELS TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

INTRODUCTION

Cooking stoves are tied to many issues with a global reach. These include sourcing for healthy, less ecological disruptive fuels and maximizing responsible user focused designs as true symbols of domestic usefulness and efficiency.

This for instance has led to appreciable developments such as Bio energy Lists, a web archive of information to help develop better stoves with biomass fuels in developing regions. One can also mention The Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (PCIA) and its Partners around the world whose aims are to increase awareness and action on indoor air pollution, household energy and health.

Engineers In Technical and Humanitarian Opportunities Of Service ( ETHOS) CONFERENCES which feature presentations, workshops, and discussion of technology in the developing world also includes thematic focuses on heating and cooking stoves, design for developing communities, incineration of medical waste, and lighting is equally another note worthy development.

Research efforts at THE VOICES FROM THE FOREST SUSTAINABLE RESOURCES CONSORTIUM, NIGERIA are also streamlined with the flow of these laudable insights and action on cooking stoves which fall within the scope of its larger vision of guarantying the fulfilment of ensuring environmental sustainability, the important Millennium Development Goal 7 of the United Nations set in 2000.

In this regard, THE VOICES FROM THE FOREST SUSTAINABLE RESOURCES CONSORTIUM NIGERIA maintains a double project portfolio on cooking stoves namely:

(A) MAXIMIZING INTERACTIVITY IN USER FOCUSED DESIGNS COOKING TECHNOLOGIES FOR SUSTAINABLE FUEL USE.

(B) DEVELOPMENT OF COMPACT AND EFFICIENT ORGANIC-BASED FUEL CAPSULES FOR COOKING STOVES

The former project is a charge of the Information technology unit of the consortium, whilst the latter is handled by the Recycling and Organic technology unit.

PROJECT A: MAXIMIZING INTERACTIVITY IN USER FOCUSED DESIGNS COOKING TECHNOLOGIES FOR SUSTAINABLE FUEL USE.

Introduction

Background work on this project includes an abstract which the consortium was privileged to send to ETHOS 2009 in Seattle. It focused on developing interactive elements for cooking technologies, using the case of THE WHEEL, developed in India
