Biosorption Potentials Of Zea Mays Cob And Musa Paradisiaca Peels In The Treatment Of Waste Effluent From Paint Industry.

ABSTRACT Studies on the biosorption potentials of Zea mays cobs and Musa paradisiaca peels in the treatment of waste effluent from paint industry, was carried out. Standard laboratory procedures using 400 ml of the effluent were adopted to assess the values of Pb, Fe, Cland PO4, BOD and TDS at pH 6.7 and pH 10.0 before and after treatment of the effluent with 1g and 3g of pulverized corn cobs and plantain peels. Standard procedures were adopted for the phytochemical screening of the bios...

Assessment Of Port Performance: The Queuing Theory Approach (A Case Of Apapa Port Complex)

ABSTRACT This research focused on assessing the port performance: the queuing theory approach using Apapa port complex (APC) as the case study. The research was designed and carried out to answer among others the following questions: to assess the level of vessel turnaround time, traffic intensity, the waiting time of calling vessels at the port? Also, to determine the probability of vessel queuing on arrival at the port? To answer these questions only primary means of data collection w...

Assessment Of Airport Productivity And Efficiency In Nigeria

ABSTRACT This study assessed the productivity and efficiency of airports in Nigeria employing the method of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA).Two variants of DEA models were estimated and their outputs compared in order to enhance the robustness of the study. These models include the one based on Constant Returns to Scale (CRS) to characterise the input-output combinations and that based on Variable Returns to Scale (VRS). It is sometimes argued that DEA models generally tend to overestim...

Effects Of Selected Carrier Materials And Storage Temperatures On Survival, Viability And Efficacy Of Rhizobia Biofertilizers

ABSTRACTBiofertilizers offer commercially feasible and environmentally sound means for supplementing nutrient supply to crops. The basic problem in acquiring quality rhizobia biofertilizers is the low number of efficient cells. The major limitations affecting the quality of rhizobia biofertilizers are; short storage duration, unavailability of appropriate carrier materials, and susceptibility to high temperature. The present study evaluated the effects of selected carrier materials and storag...

Analysis Of Freight Transport Volumes Of Ecowas Nations: Scenarios For A Short-Sea Shipping Future

ABSTRACT This study shows the effect of changes in GDP, population, foreign trade and seaport access corridors of ECOWAS member countries, especially the littoral States, on the growth of freight volumes of their respective economies. The primary aim of the research is to develop a short sea shipping model for the ECOWAS sub-region, with the objective of reducing the cost per transported unit within the sub-region and predicting the growth of short sea shipping freight in ECOWAS economi...

Analysis Of Cargo Pilferage In Nigerian Seaports: Pre And Post Concession Eras

ABSTRACT This research was conducted to analyse the incidence and trend of cargo pilferage from 1999 – 2012. In other to do this, the periods were segmented into pre concession years (1999 - 2005) and post concession (2006 - 2012). The effect of concession policy on cargo pilferage was duly considered. To analyse the trend of cargo pilferage for both the pre and post concession era, four hypotheses were formulated. The first hypothesis was tested using the cumulative moving averages ...
