The evaluation of their chemical constituents with the imported bitumen, Raynolds Construction Company (RCC)... Continue here

Phylogenetic Relationship Of Hydrocarbon Degrading Fungi Species In Bioremediation
The study focussed on the phylogenetic relationship of hydrocarbon degrading fungi species in bioremediation. Hydrocarbon degrading fungi species were isolated from soil polluted with crude oil and treated with varying concentrations of agro-wastes. DNA sequencing was done on the consortia of fungi isolated. The evolutionary history was inferred by using the... Continue here

Application Of Phytoremediation In The Management Of Oil Spillage: A Review
Crude oil production and distribution have increased the incidence of oil spills throughout the world. Oil spills often cause destructive effects on aquatic and land ecosystems. The oil spill clean-up and recovery techniques are challenging and usually involve complex mechanical, chemical, and biological methods. Usually, mechanical removal of free oil is utilized...

Spatial Distribution Of Heavy Metal Contamination Indexes In Soils Around Auto-mechanic Workshop Clusters In Yenagoa Metropolis, Bayelsa State, Nigeria
Heavy metals are substances of great health and environmental concern owing to their high discharge rates into the environments in recent years, toxicity as well as persistence in nature. Several anthropogenic activities have been established to induce heavy metals into man’s environment. Studies of this nature were lacking within the study area. Thus, this... Continue here

Use Of I-geo And Enrichment Factor In Assessing Soil Pollution Status Around Auto-mechanic Workshop Clusters In Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, Nigeria
Heavy metals could be induced into new environments either naturally or anthropogenically. Anthropogenic input of heavy metals into soils has been on the increase in recent years in various towns and cities as it is a major means through which heavy metals that were not indigenous to a given geographical area could be introduced into new environments. The need to... Continue here

Assessment Of Building Failure Within And Around Quarries
The substructures of various engineering structures that were erected on the earth are being were been supported by the soil. Hence, the nature of the soil supporting these structures becomes an important issue. Quarry blasting peak particle velocity (QBPPV) is not sufficient to ascertain the causes of foundation failure, therefore, the physical parameters... Continue here
