In a groundbreaking development out of Sierra Leone, two enterprising graduates from Fourah Bay College University have unveiled a revolutionary solution aimed at combating charcoal burning and promoting cleaner cooking practices. Moses Moseray, the lead innovator behind the project, introduced the world to ‘Eternoh’ stoves, which harness locally produced fuel derived from Cassava waste.

In an exclusive interview, Moseray highlighted the transformative features of the ‘Eternoh’ stove. Unlike traditional cooking methods, these stoves produce no toxic emissions, black smoke, or unpleasant odors. Demonstrating its simplicity, Moseray showcased the stove’s intuitive control system, allowing users to adjust heat levels effortlessly.

One of the most striking aspects of the ‘Eternoh’ stove is its remarkable efficiency. Moseray revealed that a mere liter of the locally sourced fuel, named Bio-Eternoh, can power the stove for a solid eight hours of continuous cooking. Even more impressively, this environmentally friendly fuel is slated to cost a mere 15 Leones per liter, making it both accessible and economical for households across Sierra Leone.

Moreover, Moseray emphasized the stove’s versatility, asserting its ability to cook any type of food swiftly while consuming minimal fuel. With its clean combustion process, the ‘Eternoh’ stove has garnered praise from environmental experts, with Moseray asserting its endorsement by the United Nations as a safe and sustainable cooking solution.

As a testament to their dedication, Moseray and his team have already produced prototype stoves using recycled materials, with each unit priced at an affordable 400 Leones. However, to scale their innovation and make it widely accessible, they are actively seeking support from the government and potential investors.

The unveiling of the ‘Eternoh’ stove marks a significant milestone in the quest for cleaner, safer cooking technologies. With its potential to alleviate the harmful impacts of charcoal burning and reduce indoor air pollution, this invention holds promise not only for Sierra Leone but for communities worldwide seeking sustainable energy solutions. As Moseray and his team embark on their journey to bring ‘Eternoh’ stoves to market, they are poised to ignite a revolution in the way we cook, paving the way for a brighter, greener future.
