Environmental Impacts

• Impact To Date (SSS)• Impact To Date (SSS)•  100 SSS stoves distribution•  78% recipients still using SSS stove as primary cooking source 3 month after receiving it•  390 people with household savings and cleaner, safer cooking.•  $4/month average household Savings•  1 ion Co2 emissions saved/year/household•  Base on both the total number of New Stove distributed to date and on an average house population of 5 people, about 20,905 people are now benefiting from both household savings, and from both household savings, and from cleaner and safer cooking•  Also, because an average household spends about 150 daily on charcoal and new stove consumes 60% less charcoal, About 5, 381 households are benefitting from about ₦2,700/monthly/household of fuel savings•  About 1.2 metric Ion Co2 emission is being saved/year/household

Sustainable Development Impacts

Inefficient Cook fires: Inefficient Cook fires: •  Result in about 93, 000 premature deaths annually in Nigeria•  Contribute to climate charge and create severe deforestation •  waste time and money,• Although different locally manufactured and imported Cook stove are currently being used to address these problems but:Imported Cook stoves: •  Are too expensive, for example Environ fit charcoal Stove and Burn manufacturing’s jikokoa cost ₦14, 000 $48 and ₦12000.00 $40 respectively •  Locally manufactured stoves• Are Poorly Manufactured• Have poor aesthetics and finishing that do not appeal to most customers• Therefore, promoting the use of Clean/improved cook stoves such as the SSS Cooking stove (locally made in Nigeria, using charcoal) is critical to reduce the risk of household pneumonia related death in Nigeria

Scalability

• For households in rural and Peri-urban areas in North – central, South west geopolitical zone in Nigeria who rely on solid furl and kerosene for cooking purpose, super saver stove (SSS) is an improved house hold charcoal/briquettes cook stove that saves customers time and money.• For households in rural and Peri-urban areas in North – central, South west geopolitical zone in Nigeria who rely on solid furl and kerosene for cooking purpose, super saver stove (SSS) is an improved house hold charcoal/briquettes cook stove that saves customers time and money.• Unlike the imported clean cook stoves that are very expensive or the locally manufactured stove that are poorly fabricated, (SSS) stove had excellent finishing and aesthetics that appeals to a large customer segment in both rural and semi-urban areas and it’s market price is $2 about ₦4,500 only• Urban Survivor households,•  Teachers, Police, junior workers in ministries, small business owners•  Rural Survivor Households’,•  Local Government workers, Agro – business owners•  Urban Poor Households’,• (Casual labourers and Artisans)• A cook stove solution can potentially be scaled across the country, However the solution must be study and accommodate large pots.

Replicability

The studies have showed that young children exposed to household arp (smoke) caused by burning of unprocessed solid fuel such as wood, charcoal, crop waste, animal drug and coal had double the risk of pneumonia infections compared to children who are not exposed or those from families using cleaner’s fuels such as electricity or gas. In 2012, more than half a million children beyond the age of 5 years died as a result of exposure to household pollution around mile based on studies which have indicated that reduction of household air pollution also reduces the health risk such as pneumonia, the world health organization the use of clean stores. Around 95% or all household in Nigeria use solid fuels for cooking in both rural and urban areas, this puts children in northern Nigeria risk of pneumonia related deaths attributed to household air pollution, therefore, promoting and replicating the made and use of clean/ improved cook stoves such the super saver stove (SSS) made in Nigeria,
