World Environment Day-2018 Theme :Beat the Plastic Pollution

ABSTRACTPlastics are important for man use. It cannot be eradicated nor forbidden.Then how should we  go about the debris/waste of plastics? How can we  stop the   single-use method of plastic? Should we ignore and look for another alternative? These above are some of the questions we ask ourselves on daily basis TABLE OF CONTENTS          Title page         Acknowledgments         Abstracts         Literature review         Results         Recommendations         References

Phyto-Accumulation of Lead and Chromium in Common Edible Green-Leafy Vegetables Consumed in Dutse Metropolis, Jigawa State, Nigeria

Abstract Several researches have shown that the accumulation of heavy metals in green-leafy vegetables is of increasing concern due to food safety threat and potential health risks. Therefore, the aim of this research was to analyze the amount of heavy metals  accumulated in three green-leafy vegetables consumed in Dutse metropolis, Jigawa state, Nigeria. Three (3) samples of each  of the vegetables were collected randomly from two (2) different markets in Dutse Metropolis. The ...

Interdisciplinary Environmental Education: Communicating and Applying Energy Efficiency for Sustainability

This paper demonstrates that interdisciplinary alliances on environmental education projects can effectively address the gap between complex environmental problems in the real world and disciplinary curricula in a university. We describe an alliance between an advanced communication course and a general science course wherein we addressed interconnections of energy efficiency, economics, and global climate change with respect to their impact on individuals, local businesses, and society. This...

Solar Photovoltaic Energy for Mitigation of Climate Change: A Catalytic Application of Catholic Social Thought

This paper explores an application of Catholic theology to mitigate the current destruction of God's creation underway due to global climate destabilization. Specifically it describes the possibility of the U.S. Catholic Church adopting a systematic plan to catalyze the world energy market to shift to solar photovoltaic energy, a non-polluting renewable energy source. The science behind the ecological crisis and climate change in the context of the Catholic basis for environmental stewardship...

Environmental and Economic Assessment of a Greenhouse Waste Heat Exchange

As the economic costs of energy and the negative externalities associated with the combustion of fossil fuels threaten the economic viability of greenhouses in northern climates there is a renewed interest in the use of waste heat. This paper presents a technical and economic methodology to determine the viability of establishing waste heat greenhouses using the waste heat from industrial processes in northern climates. A case study is presented of an exchange between a tomato greenhouse and ...

Economic Impact of Substituting Solar Photovoltaic Electric Production for Tobacco Farming

Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology represents a promising method to prevent dangerous global climate change, however full solar penetration demands substantial surface areas, possibly encroaching on arable land. To avoid repeating the mistakes of previous attempts to convert agricultural land to energy, arable land currently used for crops with known health hazards can be considered for conversion. Tobacco is the leading cause of avoidable death globally, and despite increasingly stringent co...

Oil spill and associated challenges on aquatic organisms.

The environment of man plays a significant role in the development of man and in determining his health status, no animal or plant has changed the environment as much as man (Mohtadi, 2015). The earth, air, land and water have witnessed man’s devastating activities (Martonas, 2017). In some instances the environment has been altered in a manner that its originality cannot be regained. Today the threat of oil spillage, air pollution, global warming, earthquake, landslides and other natural...

This project work capture the causes and effects of flooding in different parts of the nation. ABSTRACT: Nigeria is the most populous Black race country in Africa and in the world with a total land area of 983,213 km2  occupied by over 160 Million people: The interaction of these millions of people with their environment has left indelible mark  on the  landscape.  Urbanization, deforestation,  flooding,  desertification, over population  and ...

Prevalence of Parasitic Eggs in Freshly Consumed Vegetables Commercially Traded in Selected Markets within the Abuja Municipal Area Council, FCT Abuja

ABSTRACTCommonly sold vegetables within the Abuja Municipal Area Council, FCT Abuja were investigated for the prevalence of parasitic eggs. A total of 225 vegetable samples were collected and investigated for the presence of these parasites using standard methods, and quite a number of them were positive. Results obtained showed the parasitic infestation rates were 71.11%, 71.11%, 68.89%, 55.55% and 20% for water leaf, green, pumpkin, lettuce and carrot respectively. The parasites encountered...

BIOSTIMULATION OF BACTERIA DEGRADATION OF CRUDE OIL POLLUTED SOIL USING PLANTAIN PEELS

Biostimulation of bacteria degradation of crude oil polluted soil using plantain peels were studied in University of Abuja permanent site. Top soil was collected randomly from different points, sieved and weighed out 3kg into each plastic bucket, and were polluted with 300ml, 250ml and 200ml on each. The plastic buckets were labeled in single form with cotton wool plugged at the base to retain the water. (A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J) with the control as J without crude oil. After 30 days, the...

Effect of EMR from Laptop on Reproductive Hormones, Sperm Quality and Prostate Specific Antigen of Male Albino Rats

ABSTRACTHumans in modern society are exposed to an ever-increasing number of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) generated from the production and supply of electricity, television sets, personal computer (PC), radio communication, and mobile communication, hence, it has become a public health issue.  This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted from new generation laptop computers on sperm quality and reproductive hormone of male albino rats. Thi...

Cobalt Report

Cobalt is one of the natural elements that happens to be found throughout the natural environment. This natural element is present in trace amounts in sols, plants, water and our diet. When cobalt is in its pure form it is a steel-grey to black shinny hard metal. Cobalt can also exit as cobalt II and cobalt III which forms a number of both organic and inorganic salts. Cobalt in small proportion is essential to good health. Cobalt is only found in the environment in chemically bonded form...
