Vitellaria paradoxa fruit pulp bioethanol production potential: A review
In the last decade, bioethanol has become a powerful biofuel for the improvement of environmental pollution such as reduction in greenhouse gas levels. Yet, the source and type of substrate material plays a crucial role in the bioethanol production process due to the different compositional characteristics and availability of monomeric sugars. Different substrates of first, second and third generation fuel sources exist...
Evaluation of in vivo toxicity of rice husk used as fuel for cooking in households
This study aimed to evaluate the toxicological effect of food cooked or water boiled with a fan-assisted top-lit-updraft rice husk fuelled gasifier stove named Paul Olivier 150 (PO150). Distilled water was boiled for 1 h using this stove in an opened pot and closed room. This water was then cooled to room temperature before being administered to rats with body weights ranging from 70 to 110 g. Two types of tests were...
