Oil Refinery Wastewater Treatment in the Niger Delta, Nigeria: Current Practices, Challenges, and Recommendations Environmental Science and Pollution Research International. | Pubmed ID: 28861764 The extensive oil exploration has led to a series of environmental issues in the Niger Delta, Nigeria, over the years. Aside from oil spill, insufficient wastewater treatment of oil refineries and the discharged effluents become another potential source of pollution that has not received enough attention from the government and the public. Through reviewing the current oil refinery wastewater treatment processes and the discharge standards of wastewater effluents in Nigeria, we aimed to raise the awareness of the shortcomings of the current wastewater treatment technology and to discuss the consequences of insufficient treatment to the environment. This article further discussed the use of nanotechnology as a potential upgrade to the conventional treatment technologies as it has shown its capacity of removing persistent organic pollutants (POPs) or converting hazardous components to environmentally friendly derivatives. It should also prove beneficial to the key stakeholders involved in the exploration of crude oil in the region to consider optimization of oil refinery wastewater treatment processes through integration of emerging technologies.
Nanomaterials Safer-by-Design: An Environmental Safety Perspective Advanced Materials (Deerfield Beach, Fla.). | Pubmed ID: 29436017 Designing safer nanomaterials and nanostructures has gained increasing attention in the field of nanoscience and technology in recent years. Based on the body of experimental evidence contributed by environmental health and safety studies, materials scientists now have a better grasp on the relationships between the nanomaterials' physicochemical characteristics and their hazard/safety profiles. Therefore, it is expected that an integration of design synthesis and safety assessment will foster nanomaterials safer-by-design by considering both applications and implications. From the environmental safety perspective, the most recent advances that demonstrate effective nanomaterials safer-by-design are highlighted.
