An integrated process investigation of self-sustaining incineration in a novel waste incinerator: Drying, pyrolysis, gasification, and combustion of sludge-plastic blends

Utilization of waste-water sludge is one of the most difficult processes of environment protection because of the high moisture and contents of harmful substances. Incineration is the effective method of utilization of such waste mater. To deal with these issues more effectively, a novel sludge incineration technology was developed in this study. The results showed sludge drying, pyrolysis, gasification and incineration...

The Role of Mara River Basin Wetland in Reduction of Nitrogen Load to Lake Victoria

The role of Mara River basin wetland in reduction of nitrogen load to Lake Victoria was investigated. Reconnaissance survey was carried out to identify the suitable sampling points in the wetland. Transects were developed in the inlet and outlet zones of the wetland through which three sampling points were established at each transect. Data for physical-chemical parameters such as pH, temperature and dissolved oxygen...

Hydrogeochemical Study of Surface Water Resources of Orlu, Southeastern Nigeria

Hydrogeochemical assessment of surface water Resources of Orlu and its environs was carried out in order to evaluate the chemical composition and quality profile with respect to the environmental setting of the study area. A total of six samples were collected, from different rivers and streams traversing different communities in the area, and analyzed for major cations and anions as well as trace elements like Fe, Mn,...

Characterization of the top sediment layer in coastal intertidal mudflats from medium-to-coarse resolution satellite imagery and field measurements

Intertidal sediments are critically important in controlling intertidal mudflat microphytobenthic primary productivity and the functioning of intertidal ecosystems. This paper demonstrates the possibility of deriving different intertidal sediment properties from coarse-to-medium resolution remote sensing imagery. Supervised and image based classification methods were used to map different substrate types based on the...

Hydro-geoelectric study of Ijare town, southwestern Nigeria

Geoelectric study involving fifty four (54) Vertical Electrical Soundings (VES) has been undertaken within Ijare, southwestern Nigeria with the aim of evolving the hydrogeologic setting of the town. Ijare is underlain by the Precambrian Crystalline Basement Complex rocks with inhabited parts of the town underlain by migmatite gneiss and fine-grained biotite granite while inselbergs of older granites suites adjoins the...
