Zaynab Bilyamin, a senior in the chemistry department at the Federal University of Dutse (FUD), has turned ‘pure water’ waste into kerosene and fuel.

The Jigawa Indian who was looking to pursue a career in academia did a research project that focused on low-density polyethylene conversion.

The end result of that research entitled “Conversion of low density polyethylene and mixed low density polyethylene with polyethylene terephthalate into fuel” is the hybrid fuel.

how zaynab did it

Zaynab’s research supervisor, Aminu Dauda, ​​said a normal process of the thermal cracking method was used in the research.

The thermal cracking method consists of subjecting the waste to a high temperature of approximately 450-500 °C, which leads to the breaking of the molecular bonds and the decomposition of the higher boiling hydrocarbons of long chain into hydrocarbons of long chain. shorter and lower boiling point in the absence of oxygen.

Zaynab said she was inspired to do the research after learning about the possibility of turning polymeric waste into fuel. This is because the country has scattered unrecycled polymeric waste.

Pictures of Mrs. Zaynab was shared on Twitter by Ovie Ali and got people talking.

Reactions on social networks

@abbas_s_zubair said:

“This is a good thesis and somewhat reduces municipal solid waste dumping. CONGRATULATIONS!

“However, PYROLYSIS of waste for fuel has a great effect in the pursuit of a greener environment and carbon reduction.

“I would have suggested the GASIFICATION process instead.”

@IamKennyBabs said:

“Something is wrong with us in this country. One would expect the government to do serious business in this area given the enormous availability of waste in the country.”

@jhopes_2217 said:

“A tenured professor in my department has worked on something similar, turning LDPE waste into crude oil and then extracting fuel from it. The fuel was used to power a generator for hours.

“The conversion process is called “PYROLYSIS”.

@I_am_Blazzer said:

“I see a lot of people here trying to tell us that plastics are products of crude oil.

“If everyone knew the process… one for d do am from.

Man invents stove that uses water for cooking

In the meantime, legit.ng previously reported that a 67-year-old Nigerian man had invented a stove that uses only water for cooking.

PR Nigeria reported that the electronics technician’s innovation was born out of his desire to subsidize the cost of using gas and kerosene.

A YouTube video shared by the aforementioned outlet showed the man named Hadi demonstrating how the water cooking stove generates fire.

Hadi, who has assembled a radio transmitter and operated a community radio station in the past, wants the relevant institutions to help him patent his innovation.
