I am a Cameroonian. Third year student journalist in the university of Bamenda Cameroon.

CAMEROON.Bamenda. Chia Basil Ambang is a 26-year-old engineer from Bamenda, Cameroon. In 2017, he started his research in biogas production by converting plastics to diesel. Now, he has successfully produced biogas using human wastes, cow dung, and kitchen wastes.

Chia Basil is still an Advance level holder in sciences. He dived into the field back in 2015, when the government of Cameroon introduced electronics, environmental and energy resources in Physics.

The young inventor who already manufactured three bottles of biogas so far said, “They are still functioning properly, we use them in our house and I haven’t sold any of them yet.”

Basil says he uses cow dung, human feces, pipes, biogas plate, and a digester to build complete and sustainable biogas for household use.

The Cameroon engineer is now looking forward to building biogas in the household that would be directly connected to the toilet. “For sustainable biogas set up for a household, one might have to spend about 200 thousand FCFA. All I need for my setup is a digester, gas analyzer, and a biogas electric generator,” Basil added.

Basil, who can also successfully transform plastic waste into diesel, pavements, or ruffing sheets is seeking support from everyone who can help him realize his projects. He says, “most of my work needs high machinery and it requires a laboratory for testing.”

The environmentalist and engineer wants to see Cameroon as the greenest country in Africa. “We have all the resources, we just need to put everything together and develop our country. We can make Cameroon the greenest country in Africa or may be in the world”, said Basil.

Chia Basil has begun training youth and many others who are willing to learn the production process. He is also willing to sale some of his work at affordable prices.

Chia Basil lives in the country’s capital, Yaounde. He has opened a small workshop and is gradually moving on with his activities.
