A Nigerian inventor identified as Emeka Nelson from Nsukka, Enugu State, south-east Nigeria has invented a prototype of a Hydro-Powered Generator.
22-year old Emeka Nelson is a graduate of National Metallurgical Training Institute.
Aside the hydro-electicity generator, the Nigerian inventor also came up with the MGBANWE C12 machine. This machine turns non-biodegradable wastes like plastics, cellophane bags into petrol, kerosene, diesel and some other heavy oils.
Emeka Nelson displayed his invention on Facebook and generated many likes and positive comments. With such an outcome, it was not rocket science that a N2 million (or $10,000) fund raising campaign was launched to promote the work of the obviously talented tech-inventor. His partner, Karo Kanye Akamune played a significant role in this aspect.
The relentless inventor says Nigerians should brace themselves for another creation which he calls the “ultra-modern bio-digester”.
Report says that Nelson still needs about N1 million to further his research and to properly improve and brand his products.
“Creative and inventive minds in Africa should be identified, supported and celebrated. Instead of marrying a third wife or building a forth house you would hardly ever sleep in, invest that money in people like Emeka Nelson.”
Akamune is strongly campaigning for financial sponsorship of the ingenious tech-creations of the talented Nigerian. He believes supporting the likes of Nelson will be a gradual step in making Nigeria a manufacturing nation.
“Always remember, a country that does not produce man-made goods and services will always lag behind.”– Kanye Akamune
Emeka Nelson reportedly runs his private company, Creative E Machines, in Awka, Anambra State, Nigeria.
“I can imagine a world where human feaces, urine etc are turned into cooking gas and best of fertilizers for our farmers.”
“I can imagine a society where this machine replaces all our soak away and pit latrine toilet systems. Creative minds tech team is working on it now.”– Emeka Nelson
