KOKO and Titan Enterprises joined forces to remedy a widespread problem in African cities: getting clean and affordable fuel for cooking in a safely manner. Titan Enterprises’ flow meter technology is playing a key role in supporting KOKO Networks (Nairobi, Kenya) deliver cheap, safe and clean cooking fuel into African homes.

Tackling particularities of the African Market:

Across many African countries, the cooking fuel market is dominated by charcoal and paraffin, both of which emit toxic fumes and soot that contribute to premature deaths. KOKO’s model answers the issues of packaging, transport and retail that induced additional costs and risks by removing the need for single-use plastic bottles and offers a scalable solution to the dirty fuels problem. At the core of the solution, Bioethanol is an ultra-clean alternative that can be produced from a number of feedstocks, a sustainable by-product of the local sugar industry in East Africa.  

How it works:

“[...] each KOKO Point fuel ATM is a precision Pelton wheel turbine flowmeter that rotates freely on robust sapphire bearings and contains over-moulded magnets that are detected through the chamber wall by a Hall effect detector. The output from this turbine flow meter is a stream of NPN pulses that are directly interfaced with the electronic display.”, explains Neil Hannay, Business development manager at Titan Enterprises.

Customers simply dock their reusable KOKO fuel bottles into the machine, and once at home, connect the bottle to KOKO-designed twin-hob stoves. The 700 clean fuel ATMs already installed across Nairobi are found inside local shops and provide fuel in small quantities for daily cooking. Expansion to Kenya is planned for next year.
