PROJECT TOPIC: HYDROCARBON DEGRADATION AND HEAVY METALS UPTAKE BY SENNA ALATA (L.) ROXB. IN SOIL POLLUTED WITH SPENT ENGINE OIL, A RESEARCH PROJECT TOPIC ON PLANT SCIENCE

Project Body:


CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.0 Background information

The disposal of spent engine oil (SEO) into gutters, water drains, open plots and farms is a common practice in Nigeria especially by motor mechanics. These oils, also called spent lubricating or waste engine oil, is usually obtained after servicing and subsequently drained from automobile and generator engines (Anoliefo and Vwioko, 2001) and much of this oil is poured into the soil. This indiscriminate disposal of spent engine oil adversely affect plants, microbes and aquatic lives (Nwoko et al., 2007; Adenipekun et al., 2008) because of the large amount of hydrocarbons and highly toxicpolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons contained in the oil (Wang et al., 2000; Vwioko and Fashemi, 2005).
