    Abstract: The continuous utilization of dye in the industries and commodity products has necessitate its development by sustainable approach. However, for the success and commercialization of these products, their cost of production should be compared to the existing products available in the market. To do these, there is a need to introduce cheap feedstock ... Show More

    Abstract: The monitoring period shows that the matric potential (Ψm) in the HillField increased with depth during winter time and vice versa in summer. It appears that the transition occurred in the first three weeks of May through the soil remained wetter at depths of 70and 90cm in the lower stations (4 and 5) but not for the top stations. In summer, the so... Show More

    Abstract: Presently work describes a new method for melanoidins removal encountered in yeast industry effluents. Three different kinds of carbon sources were inmobilized in alginate beads and include rubber tire pyrolysis, activated carbon and multiwalled nanotubes. The yeast effluent was obtained through aerobic fermentation with 40 g/L of molasses. The eff... Show More

    Abstract: As alternative to the use of these synthetic insecticides, plant extracts, powders and ash have been used as cheaper and eco-friendly means of controlling C. maculatus infestation of stored cowpea seeds. This study was carried out to investigate the contact toxicity of ripe and unripe pawpaw seeds powder, both at concentration of 0.2g, 0.4g, 0.6g, ... Show More
