    Abstract: The typical smelting wastewater is with characteristics of high concentration of TDS, conductivity, heavy metal ions, and low concentration of COD. The ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) is an attractive technology to reclaim and reuse this kind of wastewater. In this work, Coagulation-flocculation-sedimentation (CFS) and multi-media fil... Show More

    Abstract: Delta state is one of the petroleum-producing states in Nigeria where upstream and downstream exploration activities tend to pollute the environment. While soil and water pollution are regularly monitored, there is a dearth of information on the impact of exploration and related industries on air quality. This study investigated the levels of pollu... Show More

    Abstract: Biomass material is a renewable source of energy which are readily available and being produced in large quantities as most of it goes to waste. These materials can be recovered through pyrolysis process in order to produce usable products like biochar and pyroligneous acid. These products can be used as bio-fertilizer and bio-pesticides.
