AN EMISSION INVENTORY OF POLLUTANT

ABSTRACT

Pollutant emissions in Enugu urban are generally from an emission inventory of pollutant the combustion of petroleum products and to a negligible extent, solid waste disposal by open burning.

The quantity of petroleum products consumed within Enugu urban was obtained in the spot” from the functional fuel stations in the area.

The results showed that Nitrogen Oxide (No) has the highest annual concentration of 2309.11mg/m3. next is particulates (1075.8 mg/m3), hydrocarbons (378.32mg/m3), sulphur dioxide (1705.8mg/m3), and lastly, carbon monoxide (85.05mg/m3).

A comparison of pollutant concentrations with WHO quality standards showed that pollutant emissions within the study area (Enugu Urban) are well within safe limits although the pollutant concentrations will increase as the population and economy continue to grow.

Several recommendations were proferred towards the effective control of pollutant emissions into the study area. these include the improvement of the efficiency of fuels, the remobilization of automobile engines, establishment of more road network and traffic decongestion, and the promulgation of anti-air pollutant laws.

This emission inventory is recommend for the planning and development of this great metropolitan area called Enugu.
