MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR EFFECTIVE & SUSTAINABLE USE OF COOKING GAS
INTEGRATED GAS MONITORING AND LEAKAGE DETECTION SYSTEM
We are a team of students from Cameroon in Central Africa.
We are engineering students who want to answer a problem that is
undermining our community and we need your help to rein in this problem.
Africa is one of the poorest continent in the world. In the continent, young people represent 60% of the unemployed. This is very alarming for the economy and stability in the continent. Thus, entrepreneurship is proving to be a way of helping young Africans.
For this reason, we have decided to propose innovative solutions to the problems of the African community while participating in the economic emergence of the continent more precisely of Cameroon.
What is the problem behind our Project?
Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) has played a revolutionary role in
facilitating domestic fuels used for heating and cooking. With multiple
advantages, bottled LPG has seen a wide growth in many African
countries. However, LPG also comes with disadvantages.
disadvantage associated with the use of LPG is to do with the storage
To store LPG, the gas has to be kept pressurized in very
sturdy tanks and cylinders. This causes a high risk of gas leak and
explosion which resulted in serious damages to lives and property.
Besides, due to the unique form of storage, it is hard for consumers to
know when the bottle runs out of gas. This could lead to some unpleasant
experiences during cooking time.
PITCH OF OUR SOLUTION:
MYGAZ is an integrated electronic device which aims at enabling African
Community who make use of Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) as domestic gas, to
avoid the embarrassment of sudden gas termination as well as enable
easy detection of gas leakage in-house. MYGAZ is an intelligent meter
and a mobile application.
Energy can be conserved by reducing wastage and losses, improvement in efficiency by technological up gradation and improved operation and maintenance.
MYGAZ is an integrated device that is designed to provide adequate security and enhance the maximal use of Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) for especially domestic users.
It offers a variety of usage. It is a measuring and safety tool with several features:
- Provide real-time information about the amount of gas in a gas cylinder.
- Provide gas management system with an easy to use mobile application.
- Display the remaining cooking time (vis-a-vis remaining gas) in terms of hours and minutes with greater accuracy.
- Notify user when the bottle is about to run out.
- Alert user when there is a chance of gas leakage.
- Keep track of gas usage by history chart.
- Help to verify the fullness of the gas bottle at 99.99% when buying a new bottle.

To build an affordable gas bottle meter connected to a smart phone for effective and sustainable use of cooking gas for families in Africa.
The funds we raise will cover the development of a fully working Minimum Viable Product. Based on the prototype we had designed, we have tested our system in real condition. We have a very large community around our innovation in Africa. The Startup is a winner of various competition in Cameroon.
|July - October 2018
||Raising start-up on gogetfunding.
During this period, we will be components and accessories to produce at least 5 prototypes in China.
|December - January 2019
||The prototypes are ready, and up for shooting for promotion and marketing purposes.|
||The Startup is receiving and delivering it's first orders.
||The Startup is analyzing customer's response, comments and feedbacks, adjusting if there are any problems.
||The Business is officially open and effective.
We need Your Help to make this product ready, to make the life of millions families better and Save life in Africa
So far we
were financing the project ourselves but if we want to cover all
expenses we need to increase our budget. We are really thankful for any
amount that you are willing to donate to our cause.
