The workshop in collaboration with Instove Solutions, USA designed and produced the first ever efficient institutional woodstove in Nigeria – the ICEED 60 litre institutional woodstove. First deployed in 2010 as a pilot project in a public boarding secondary school in Niger State, its outstanding performance led to a number of organizations collaborating with ICEED to expand it to other schools. Till date ICEED has produced and deployed over 300 stoves to public and private boarding secondary schools in Ebonyi, Niger, Akwa Ibom, Jigawa and Nasarawa States.
The workshop working with a group of technologists from Kenya designed and produced the ICEED fuel efficient 100 and 200 institutional woodstoves in 2016. With a thermal efficiency of over 30% and firewood efficiency of about 70%, the stove has enjoyed wide acceptability and has been deployed in boarding schools, agro processing clusters, military formations and prisons in Adamawa, Borno, Niger, Ebonyi, Anambra, Cross River and Jigawa States.
ICEED is currently working with SSM China to establish a production line for modern efficient household wood and charcoal stoves.
