PHOTOCATALYTIC DEGRADATION OF PHARMACEUTICAL WASTE WATER USING TITANIUM DIOXIDE AS PHOTOCATALYST

ABSTRACT The potential advantage and application of the photocatalytic process using titanium dioxide as the photocatalyst to treat industrial waste water in UV irradiation has been reported. The aim of this work is to investigate the effectiveness of photocatalytic degradation using TiO2 in treating pharmaceutical waste water. Wastewater was collected from the homogenous tank of effluent treatment plant (ETP) of a Pharmaceutical company. The raw sample was tested and the COD...

Energy Audit, Optimisation and Management of Liquified Natural Gas Plants With Renewable Energy Resources Around the Plant: A Case Study of Brass LNG Limited, Brass Island, Nigeria

An energy audit on the Brass Liquified Natural Gas plant at Brass Island former Agip facility was carried. The average offshore windspeed and wave return periods for 12months  were measured for their wind and wave energy potentials. Also,  the solar insolation for the location was collected for a 12month period. A pilot design based on techno-economic analysis was made for a wind-solar- gas turbine hybrid power system and results showed it's cheaper, environmentally friend, and more efficie...

RECOVERY OF HEAVY OIL USING THE TOE-TO- HEEL AIR INJECTION, (THAI) METHOD BY ANEKWE MICHAEL I. (PETROLEUM ENGINEERING DEPT. FUTO)

ABSTRACT This project work deals on the feasibility of transferring the Toe – To – Heel Air Injection (THAI) technology which is a new in-situ combustion method of heavy oil recovery from Alberta, Canada, where the technology has recorded success with high rate of recovery to South-West, Nigeria (Ondo state) for efficient heavy oil recovery. In this work, the textural, reservoir, physical and chemical properties of oil sand in Nigeria were compared with ...

Physio-chemical and micro bacterial assessment of bottled water samples sold in bauchi metropolis

ABSTRACT             The advent of sachet and bottled water has increasingly filled the gap in household water security. This research work was carried out to assess the quality of bottled and sachet water sold in Bauchi metropolis. Thirty (30) water brands consisting of twenty (20) sachet water brands and ten (10) bottled water brands were assessed for their physical, chemical and microbiological parameters using standard analyti...

Prediction of Generalised and localized carbon steel corrosion using improved Norsok and Papavinasam Models

Carbon steel corrosion is a commonly encountered issue in pipelines transporting hydrocarbons containing corrosive agents such as CO2, H2S and water. As a result, several corrosion prediction models have been put forward over the years although no standard model exists for corrosion prediction in the industry. Two of such models are the Norsok model for predicting sweet generalized corrosion and the Papavinasam model for predicting localised corrosion which are both insufficient to accurately...

INVESTIGATING THE OPTICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF PHOSPHORESCENT SILICONE RUBBER AS A COMPLEMENTARY SOURCE OF LIGHTING

The household lighting cost accounts for 10% of the electric bill, changing the light bulbs effectively can reduce the long term energy costs significantly. In Nigeria, where less than one percent of the population has access to 24 hours of interrupted power supply there is a need for a complementary, renewable source of light which provides enough illumination at a reasonable price, with assured safety using it and also using for a long duration of time before the need to replace it. Recentl...

THE USE OF SHEA BUTTER AS THE OIL BASE IN THE PREPARATION OF METHYL SALICYLATE (ANALGESIC) CREAMS

In the present study, an attempt was made to investigate the use of Shea butter as the oily base in the formulation of analgesic (Methyl salicylate) creams using hydrous wool fat base cream as standard. Methyl salicylate (The active ingredient), Bees wax, water and Shea butter obtained from local sources and refined were used separately on three different types on emulsifying agents namely cetrimide, polysorbate 80 and sodium lauryl sulphate, in the formulation of the analgesic cream. The st...

An Introduction to Adaptive QAM Modulation Schemes for Known and Predicted Channels

ABSTRACT | A major disadvantage with fixed modulation (nonadaptive) on channels with varying signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is that the bit-error-rate (BER) probability performance is changing with the channel quality. Most applications require a certain maximum BER and there is normally no reason for providing a smaller BER than required. An adaptive modulation scheme, on the contrary, can be designed to have a BER which is constant for all channel SNRs. The s...

A Novel Mobile WiMAX Solution for Higher Throughput

Abstract— The IEEE 802.16 standard, also known as WiMAX,has emerged as an exciting technology for broadband wirelesscommunications with potentials to offer high throughput andsupport high bandwidth demanding applications. WiMAX,however, has yet to prove its effectiveness when the end terminalsare not fixed and have the capacity to move from one place toanother at different speeds. Recent studies suggest that whileWiMAX (802.16e) has the potential to deliver a data rate up to 75Mb/s for fixe...

Influence of Composition on the Thermophysical Properties of LNG

The saturated liquid density deviations were compared using the PR, RSK (Advanced), AGA8, and GERG2008 EoSes. The bubble pressure deviations, saturated liquid densities, isobaric specific heat capacities, and enthalpy of vaporization were compared using the PR, RSK (Advanced) and GERG2008 EoSes. The GERG2008 EoS was used to analyse the effect of nitrogen and heavy alkanes on the thermophysical properties of LNG mixtures. Experimental density data was used to compare the accuracy of ...

Design and Simulation of Telemetry Link and Power System for ABT-18 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

ABSTRACTThe Airbeetle-18 unmanned Aircraft is an Aircraft design for the purpose of surveillance following the fact that the parent Airbeetle-18 has almost reached the end of its life time. Hence, there is need to convert it to an unmanned aircraft in other to extend its service life time.A comprehensive literature review was carried out on Telemetry and power system design and the previous work done as it pertains to aircraft in Airbeetle-18 category. Furthermore, system requirem...

STUDIES ON THE HAEMATOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF CLARIAS GARIEPINUS FROM GUBI DAM, BAUCHI STATE, NIGERIA

ABSTRACTStudies were carried out to determine the haematological characteristics of Clarias gariepinus healthy specimens were obtained from Gubi dam. Blood sample ranging between 1.0-1.5ml were taken with the aid of sterilized syringe (21G) inserted by caudal vein puncture. The haematological parameters for each blood specimen were measured using automated haematological analyzer (sysmex  Kx 21N; 000758 model).
