The rapid growth of industrialization and agriculture in Nigeria has been accompanied by an increase in the quantity and variety of pollutants released into the surrounding environment i.e. air, water, soil and vegetation.
These pollutants have become threats to the West African Ecosystem and may ultimately threaten the very survival of the people of Nigeria, Rivers State and other oil producing areas in particular.
The Institute of Pollution Studies (IPS) was established in 1982 primarily for research, teaching and consultancy services. The Institute is headed by a Director, who coordinates the activities of the Institute through (i) Heads of Technical Units for Studies/Research and (ii) Administrative staff for administration.
Published over 100 papers on Environmental contamination/pollution/control in National and International in referenced journals. An Editor of:
i Wilolud online journals
ii British journal of Applied Science & Technology
iii Journal of Oil and Gas Technology
With over 25 years experience in Environmental studies as consultant with many Technical Reports for both oil and non-oil companies including SPDC, Agip, Totalfina ELF, Chevron, Mobil, OMPADEC/NDDC and Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority, etc.
