Conventional and microwave pyrolysis remediation of crude oil contaminated soil
Ogunkeyede, Akinyemi Olufemi (2016) Conventional and microwave pyrolysis remediation of crude oil contaminated soil. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The Nigerian economy has relied heavily on crude oil production since independence in 1960. As a consequence, it has seen an influx of multinational petroleum companies with oil exploration and associated activities having significant environmental impacts, particularly oil leakage and spillage into soil and the overall degradation of the ecosystem in the Niger Delta area. This study aims to find a viable solution to the remediation of polluted soil by comparing two thermal remediation techniques, namely microwave pyrolysis and traditional pyrolysis, which has been investigated using a Gray-King retort.
