ABU 300x224The Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria has entered into an agreement with a Hungarian company Agrar-Biothanol to produce 1,333 tonnes of liquid organic fertilizer and 2.66 million litres of ethanol annually as well as 1.2mw electricity. When completed, the electricity produced would cater for thirty percent of the university’s electricity consumption, and enhance agricultural training and research. The Vice Chancellor of the university Professor Ibrahim Garba stated this in Samaru Campus Zaria at the ground breaking ceremony of bio-ethanol and biogas plant Power plant.  He noted that the independent power generation project became imperative as the institution could no longer sustain the N86 million monthly electricity bills adding that the power supply would be generated through farm produce and human feces. According to him, “ABU seeks to address these issues by building the power plant which the university has found a worthy partner by reaching an agreement with Agrar-Biothanol Company of Hungary to undertake this project. On his part, the Hungary’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Prof. Ternak Gabor said that Nigeria’s growing population made the diversification to renewal energy production necessary.
