Nigeria Indigenous Process Technology System (NIPTIS )

The Nigerian Indigenous Process Technology Information System (NIPTIS) Project was developed to store and disseminate information on Nigeria’s Indigenous technologies. Such information will help investors and fabricators to source / upgrade such technologies for diverse Production / Processing Operations. The website is a platform whereby engineers, scientist, industrialist, researchers, entrepreneurs and small medium enterprise can access information on Nigeria Indigenous Process Technologies.

The indigenous process technology is the backbone of sustainable development of any country that wants to develop technologically. It is based on this that the NIPTIS was initiated to enable the Council document and disseminate Nigeria’s Indigenous technologies through the Information System. The aim of the website is to showcase the Nigeria Indigenous Technologies from all the States of the Federation for processing commercially abundant raw materials in the country in order to attract development partners and investors in Nigeria and International world.

Indigenous Processing Of Local Seasoning (IRU) From African Locust Beans ( Parkia biglobosa)
Iru is one of the most important condiments in African countries especially Nigeria. Condiments are known to contribute to the calorie and protein intake and are generously added to soups as low-cost meat substitutes by low- income families in parts of Nigeria. The estimated average consumption of the condiment per head per day for Nigeria, Togo and Ghana are 10g, 4 g and 2 g respectively.

The Locust bean tree is a hard wood tree that grows in the Northern parts of Cross-River state. It bears fruits in clusters of hanging pods. The pods which carry seeds embedded in a pulp like material turns from green to brown at maturity.

The processing of locust beans into Dawadawa involves extracting the seeds from their pods, removing their seed coat, and fermenting them. The result is a strong smelling Dawadawa which is a favorite seasoning in most parts of Nigeria.
