OPTIMIZATION OF METHANE GAS BY ANAEROBIC DIGESTION

ABSTRACTThis project work aimed at demonstrating the benefits of organic wastes in the production of Biogas using a bio-digester through the use of different substrates and methods in order to optimize the production of Methane Gas by anaerobic digestion. Five samples (substrates) were used in this research with their different seeding substances.Organic wastes, particularly plants wastes and animal dung constitute a nuisance to our environment and also a threat to public health, t...

Women and Community Development In Rural Africa: Deconstructing Dominant Narratives

Although women’s critical roles in rural community development in Africa is undisputed, its recent discursive appeal in development policy raises questions regarding the ways in which the women living in rural contexts have been mis/understood, mis/appropriated and marginalized. Arguing that two narratives emerge: rural women as victims and rural women as agents of change, this chapter examines the ways in which African women’s experience in rural community development has been framed to ...

Effect of organizational ethics on employee performance

The purpose of this research study was to determine the effect of organisational ethics on employee performance, using Access bank plc Abuja as a case study. The underlining objective of this study was to evaluate employee commitment to the organization’s ethics and to determine the extent to which organizational ethics influence employee toward increased performance. A multiple linear regression model was used to test the null hypotheses proposed for this study. A structured que...

An Analysis of the effectiveness of Nigeria Procurement process

Public procurement can be viewed as a useful for delivering public goods and to facilitate economic development where they are practiced. The subject of public procurement is vast and covers a wide range of economic sectors, encompassing the needs of governments to function within its established capacity and delivering the much needed services to its citizens. The fundamental basis for this research study is to examine the Nigerian procurement system and evaluate its effectivenes...

Optimal Location and Sizing of Distributed Generation in Distribution Network Using Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Logic Technique

The growing gap between electric power generated and that demanded is of utmost concern especially in developing economy, hence calling for measures to argument the existing power generated of which DG is a more viable aspect to explore in curtailing this challenges; although been confronted with issue of location and sizing. This research applied Adaptive neuro fuzzy logic technique to optimize DG location and size. A 24 bus radial network was used to demonstrate this process and having a su...

IMPACT OF WEATHER VARIABLES ON ELECTRICITY POWER DEMAND

Fuzzy logic, being a very robust artificial intelligence technique, was employed to forecast short term load in this work. The algorithm was demonstrated with the help of seven months average daily load data collected from Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN). The outcome realized from the model or simulation illustrate that the projected forecasting technique, which propose the use of weather alteration such as temperature and humidity, gives load forecasting results with substantial prec...

Assessing the Benefits and Challenges of Distributed

The growing concern for the need to reduce the gap between power generated and power consumed in Nigeria is on the increase. Many measures and policy have been geared by Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission and Ministry of Power to revamp the generation aspect of the country power sector but the impact is yet to be felt as the amount of power still generated is far below par compared to other countries. Nigeria average power generation stands at an average of 5800 MW. With the call to...

Microfinance institution and poverty reduction

Abstract Microfinance has been claimed to be an important building block in the process of diminishing poverty. Commercial banks do often not serve poor people, and therefore the poor need an alternative source of credit. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between access to microfinance institutions and poverty reduction in Nigeria on state level. Previous research has shown varying results of microfinance programmes depending on where it has been carried out a...

Low cost housing in Southern Africa

Housing for the poor in South African is the least problem dealt with in this country, looking at the past years of South Africans low cost housing for most people that are living in rural areas that are not economically active or at a distance from the economical areas have not been provided with housing at all. People living in area of low income have no quality housing, but will only depend on their own informal and traditional methods of house construction to have shelter.TABLE OF CO...
