L’industrialisation des pays en voie de développement engendre l’augmentation des déchets liquides que sont les huiles de vidange, tout en se heurtant au problème de déficit énergétique. D’autre part, elle s’accompagne d’une forte croissance démographique qui accentue et augmente la quantité de déchets, particulièrement les déchets ménagers solides. Ce qui constitue une réelle menace pour l’environnement et les populations.
The effect of building integrated photovoltaic system (Bipvs) on indoor air temperatures and humidity (Iath) in the tropical region of CameroonType:PublicationPublication date:Objective:
The building sector accounts for around 40-50 % of the energy consumed in developing countries and contribute over 30 % of CO2 emissions. In Cameroon, the electricity access is less than 5 % in rural areas against 50 % in urban areas. All sectors combined the Cameroonian final energy consumption amounts to approximately 5235 kilo-tonnes of oil equivalent (Ktoe) and 73 % of this energy are assigned for residential use.

In most Africa countries, cooking is a dirty and time-consuming job that involves feeding some pieces of fuel such as wood, charcoal, or coal for a fire. Globally, some 500 million households with more than 70% in Africa depend on burning solid fuel to meet their cooking, heating, lighting, and other household energy needs. The wanton exploitation of wood fuel is having so many negative impacts on many households in Cameroon. Some of the impacts include the depletion of the forest leading to environmental degradation, health impacts, etc.
