EDC 2022 Finalists

Here are the top ten finalists for the Science to Products Africa (S2PAfrica) Engineering Design Competition (EDC) 2022. We thank all teams for their participation at all stages of the selection process so far.

Below are the shortlisted projects in no particular order.

Team

Sustainable Decentralized Wastewater System for Irrigation

The goal of the project is to build a wastewater (surface water runoffs and grey water) treatment system that will use unutilized wastewater to irrigate agriculture.

Team

Kryotech

Our project is a Vertical axis wind turbine integrated with a flywheel energy storage system.

Team

Koye Hydro

This project aims to provide hydroelectric power to local residents of Koye fishing village, Ogun State, Nigeria by making use of the river which flows through the region.

Team

Keytric

A modified door lock that switches off a room or building’s electricity supply when locked from outside.

Team

Electromagnetic Active Suspension (EASS)

EASS is the suspension for future and present automobiles that will provide a smooth and efficient ride over varying road conditions by automatically switching between the performance behaviors typical of a sport car to that of an off-road vehicle.

Team

Drones for Plant Health Monitoring

Our solution leverages drone technology to provide AI-enabled disease detection, drone imagery services and automated data collection for farmers.

Team

De-husking Machine for Nigeria Coconut Farmers

A unique machine that removes the outer shell of a coconut known as “Husk”.

Team

Comparative Experimental Study of Improved Charcoal Cookstoves

It is modifying the existing design of charcoal cookstoves and fabricate it to carry out comparative experimental study for performance evaluation to provide better alternative to the traditional method of cooking and heat control problems.

Team

Carbonated Hydroxyapatite/Polylactic Acid (PLA) for Bone Regeneration

Production of AB-type carbonate Hydroxyapatite/PLA composite to improve solubility and mechanical competence during bone treatment/repair, in vitro and in vivo.

Team

Capture

Capture is a Small-Scale Vertical Axis wind turbine that generates electrical energy by rotating about its axis and turning an alternator, the wind turbulence caused by vehicles is harnessed and used to generate electricity.
