Air quality continues to be one of the main environmental concerns in Nigeria. In Nigeria, where the majority of the rural population uses charcoal, very little is known about the effects of the fuel life cycle on producers’ livelihoods, which bear significant risks to health, safety and security. the environment. lucrative industry. Demographic increases and deviations from the energy scale model suggest that demand for charcoal for heating and cooking in sub-Saharan Africa will continue to increase until 2030 and beyond. The charcoal production industry may use an air monitoring program to help it meet its environmental responsibilities and its responsibility as a member of the local community. Monitoring industry performance helps manage industrial facilities in an environmentally sustainable manner.
A study of air quality in a charoal production site Amukpe sapele and its surroundings in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria revealed that air quality in the region is affected to varying degrees by industrial activities on the production site.
This report covers a brief history of the study, the state of the problems, the goals and objectives of the work performed, the scope of the research and also the relevance of the work done regarding the analysis of the emissions produced by an installation charcoal production. Amukpe Sapele delta state. An accredited environmentalist was involved as a third party. Consulting an independent third party to perform the measurements gives more credible results and provides the unavailable equipment required for the analysis.
The purpose and purpose of the project is to evaluate the concentration of particles and gaseous pollutants within a 2 km radius of the charcoal facility. The significance of this experiment is to detect if the air in the surrounding environment is polluted by the gas emitted from the production site, which can be detrimental to human health. An air quality study at Amukpe Sapele and in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria revealed that air quality in the region is affected to varying degrees by industrial, human and environmental activities. natural. The results discussed indicate that a local charcoal facility can be sustainable and without significant environmental impact in terms of emissions. However, a more in-depth assessment of environmental performance could take place with the availability of measuring equipment with a wider measurement range, greater accuracy and more appropriate for measurements in a charcoal plant. In addition, the results indicate large amounts of pollutants in the immediate environment of the immediate environment. It is recommended that sapele amukpe charcoal producers provide appropriate PPE and follow WHO guidelines and recommendations to control and reduce emissions.
