By Our Reporter

The University of Calabar, UNICAL has won the first, second, and third place positions for Science and Innovative Research at the just-concluded 16th edition of the TETFund Research for Impact Initiative (R4i 16) in Abuja.

The team, during a visit to the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Florence Banku Obi for briefing, made it known to Management that, they presented a biogas prototype christened ‘Gasglow’, a biofuel machinery which when fully developed and patented, will be commercialised to serve the alternative and clean energy need of society.

The invention taps into the Nigerian Renewable Energy Master Plan and promotes the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs Provisions of Article 7 (“ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”).

The TETFair exercise which was held from the 7th to 9th of December 2023 with the theme; “Ideation, Innovation & Solution”, is sponsored by TETFund in collaboration with Innov8 Hub to give hands-on training to scholars and deepen their knowledge of Scientific Research and Innovative Education.
