While driving along the Third main land bridge in Lagos, Nigeria it is hard not to notice around the coast around the Yaba area un-ending heaps of smoldering sawdust from the timber saw mills located in the area.
These never ending smoldering heaps of sawdust(from saw mills),rice-husk (rice-mills) and millet-waste that are a common site in the food basket towns could be put to good use by turning it to useful energy.
These waste products also better known as bio-fuels are good for the environment when converted to energy because they fit well into the natural carbon cycle.
Extracting the energy in these bio-waste products put them to good use with little toxic emmissions when compared with hydrocarbon fuels.
