    CEESD and GlobalResolve begin experiments on gel ethanol utilization



    A distillation plant capable of producing 100 litres of ethanol (95 %) daily has already been designed and installed by Global Resolve and CEESD at Domeabra, a rural community in the Asanti Akim district of Ghana. With funding from Global Resolve, ethanol will be produced and gelled and subsequently tested as cooking fuels in two schools – Mount Olivet International School at Kwadaso in Kumasi and Domeabra Senior High School in Domeabra, and a selected number of households. Feedbacks from the two schools and the selected households will provide information on the relative costs of using gel fuel against other household fuel such as charcoal, firewood, and LPG, in addition to other issues such as reliability and comfortability of using gel ethanol stoves.

    This project is jointly implemented by GlobalResolve and CEESD with support from Nana Frimpong Afoakwa – Chief of Domeabra, and Heads of selected schools. It also involves students from Kumasi Polytechnic and Arizona State University who have been tasked with the development of local gelling agents and development of efficient gel fuel stoves with supervision from staff of the partner institutions (Engineers at CEESD and Global Resolve).
