'Young genius': 200-level student generates gas from waste, connects it to parent's kitchen

An Achievers University 200-level student, Tolushade Toluwani, has demonstrated exceptional technical skills by creating a biogas system from waste materials.

In a video, he showcased how this sustainable energy source powered his parents’ kitchen for cooking.

The mechatronics undergraduate explained how he connected the gas from a digester outside the house through pipes to the cooking gas.

In his demonstration, the gas passes through the pipe into a gasbag placed in the kitchen while the other end of the pipe is connected to the burner.

The young scientist demonstrated how to light the cooking gas.

He first applied pressure on the gasbag so it would be regulated with the help of wood and a stone before striking a matchstick to light the burner.
