Oil is the primary base of Nigeria’s economy and is also the cause of major environmental and social problems in the Niger Delta region of the years, oil exploration, production, and refinement in Nigeria hasresulted in various environmental and ecological problems that range fromoil spills, gas flares, habitat destruction, air. Oil spillage and gas flaring activities are still commonplace in Nigeria, especially in the oil-rich Niger Delta. Gas flaring has also continued unabated irrespective of the Nigerian government’s directive to end flaring by (Kalu, ). The Idoho oil spill incidence of spil barrels of crude oil into the environment.

  Plastic bags popularly called nylon and plastic bottles are major sources of pollution in Nigeria. Polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene and . Rivers in Warri, Delta State of Nigeria are of particular importance in surface water pollution studies as they act as receptacles for effluents from oil industries, municipal sewage, agricultural and urban run-off. The water quality of these rivers is thus considerably changed. Results obtained from the analyses were correlated using Pearson’s correlation matrix, principal component.

The current daily crude oil production in Nigeria stands at about million barrels per day thus placing Nigeria as the 6th largest oil producing country in the world. Volumes of petroleum and its production wastes streams find their way into the inland waters and oceans.

Lubricating oil finds several applications in a technologically advanced economy; Lubricating mineral oil has a petroleum origin: therefore it is a precious product that can and must be ecologically recovered in order to save a non-renewable source of energy.

The waste is treated with alum and crude izal before discharge. However, individuals who collect wastes from homes and factories lack the know-how to treat the different types of wastes, so they often dump everything together. Oil pollution Oil spillage is one of the worst polluters of water in Nigeria.

Solid waste management is a major environmental challenge in most Nigerian cities. Waste generation rate in Nigeria is estimated at kg/capita/day which gives an average of 42 million.

The study assessed the contamination of River Kaduna, Nigeria by some chemical properties (Zn, Pb, Cu, Cd, Cr, Mn, Ni, Fe, TDS, EC, DO pH and turbidity) on a monthly basis for a period of three.

persons. The most obvious culprit in this field is oil spillage, which results in a number of health hazards to man an outright destruction of marine life. A good example is the Lake NYOS incident in Cameroon, 21 and the Finima 5 oil blowout in Nigeria in whichsq. metres of water bodies and life forms were affected in Rivers State.

François Audibert, in Waste Engine Oils, Insight into waste oil management in some European countries Germany. Owners of waste oil and producers of new oil participate in collection financing.

A complement is brought by the rerefiner, or the user burning waste oil, the objective being that this organization allows the rerefiner to maintain activity in spite of base oil price changes.

In urban areas, Nigerian cities have been described as some of the dirtiest the most unsanitary and the least aesthetically pleasing in the world (Mabogunje ). Many industries in Nigeria do discharged their wastewater into surface waters [oceans, seas and streams] more often than not without any form of remediation or treatment.

This has. benefit is no doubt overwhelming. However, this comes with quite some societal and environmental negative effect. One is solid waste. Hence, the goal of this thesis work is to examine and analyse the existing solid waste management resources and strategies in Onitsha, Anambra state, Nigeria; it also studies the classes of waste generated, how.

Kano and Rivers State with its fair share of population also suffers similar fate in controlling and managing solid waste. Generally speaking, population increase in Nigeria has led to an unprecedented growth in its economy but with a devastating effect on the environment as more wastes are generated due to the need for housing, manufacturing industries and a boost in trade volume.

Water pollution in Nigeria according to Gbamanija () arises from various activities, among which are: i. Sewage leakages ii. High population density iii.

oil spillage iv. Menace of Nipa palm and water hyacinth v. Industrial waste dumped into our waters vi. Pollution of ground water through drilling activities. Water in Nigerian rivers mainly becomes contaminated with oil waste. A great number of factories operating in the Nigerian region put a lot of effort into oil extraction, but they do not pay enough attention to environmental issues in Nigeria.

OIL – great income and great Environmental damages. Throughout the world, human use of water, and bad planning have led to drier and polluted rivers, lakes, and groundwater resources with dramatic effects on the natural ecosystems.

Nigeria's vast freshwater resources are among those most affected by environmental stress imposed by human population growth, urbanization, and industrialization. Disposal and management of wastes in Nigeria present. This study evaluated the bacteriological quality of water samples from Epie creek, Niger Delta.

Water samples were collected from five different locations (Akenfa, Agudama-Epie, Tombia, Opolo and Biogbolo) in two seasons viz: dry i.e.

January and February and wet season i.e. May and June, ). The samples were analyzed following standard protocols. International Journal of Ecotoxicology and Ecobiology (IJEE) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access, and online journal.

The journal includes, but not limited to, original articles, critical reviews, research notes, and short communications in the interdisciplinary area of ecological, toxicological, and biological research.

The audience is the international scientific community as. Many Nigerians perceive the Niger Delta as synonymous with the oil producing areas of Nigeria. In other words, the Niger Delta includes the states of Abia, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Edo, Imo, Ondo and Rivers.

The region is blessed with abundance of human and physical resources, including the majority of Nigeria's oil and. The head of safety maintained that some of the companies in Warri and environs could be responsible for the alleged oil spill in the rivers just as mechanics also discharge their waste oil into.

Heavy metals are well-known environmental pollutants due to their toxicity, persistence in the environment, and bioaccumulative nature. Their natural sources include weathering of metal-bearing rocks and volcanic eruptions, while anthropogenic sources include mining and various industrial and agricultural activities.

Mining and industrial processing for extraction of mineral resources and. Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety is a multi-disciplinary journal that focuses on understanding the exposure and effects of environmental contamination on organisms including human health.
