Plasma Gasification as an Alternative Technology for the Treatment of Waste in Kano State, Nigeria: A Proposed Model

Aminu Mansur


Abstract: The study aimed at proposing a model an (advance technology) known as Plasma gasification as an alternative technology for the treatment of waste. The paper portray the technology and unveiled it relevance and efficiency in waste management system. The findings reveals, among other things, that plasma technology is still not recognized in the study area, some environmental constraints ranging from erratic electricity supply and cost have to a large extent hindered the utilization and efficient performance of this type of technology, that waste generation and disposal is increasing at alarming rate due to urban growth, economic activities and increasing population. Similarly, being a commercial centre coupled with high concentration of industries, these activities also give rise to huge volume of Municipal solid waste generation and disposal practices making it management to be a major environmental problem affecting the study area. Although, the amount of waste generation and disposal on daily basis could not be precisely established due to lack of inclusive and consistent data base on waste management. The paper concludes that waste management system is at it lowest ebb and thus, open dumping is currently practice with few segment of the population engaged in scavenging.
