Best Ideas 2019 features all the nominated entries submitted under ‘Submit your Idea’ category. All the entries consist of innovative solutions or propositions for an enterprise that champions the Sustainable Development Goals. They can be on the conceptual, planning, or start-up stage.
Explain your idea in details:
GreenNigeria is going to create high quality green jobs while reducing oil dependence and waste volumes, by turning waste to electricity, clean fuels and green chemicals with better economies and greater sustainability than other technologies relying on fossil sources. By using exclusive conversion processes that makes biofuels, chemicals and electricity from garbage instead of petroleum.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
My idea is to design a conversion plant with production of bio-derived chemicals such as dimethylaniline, formaldehyde, automotive anti-freezers, solvent, acetic acid, fertilizers, e.t.c and energy such as heat, electricity, methanol fuel e.t.c. from 3.8 kilo tons per month municipal solid waste through the use of the different waste to Energy WTE technologies which are gasification and anaerobic digestion. Methanol is an important feedstock for the chemical industry as well as the future energy and fuel industry. Fertilizer is a chemical substance added to soil to increase its fertility, it does not deplete the soil. ransportation, building and construction, electrical and electronics, packaging, paints and coatings, pharmaceuticals and water treatment industries. The global methanol market is expected to reach USD 61 Billion at the end of the forecasted period and is expected to grow at CAGR of around 7.5%. Fertilizers are use by farmers for soil conditioning largest amount of customers of fertilizers are farmers. Fertilizers Market size $78.06 Billion By 2025. CAGR 5.1%. The global fertilizers market size is expected to reach USD 78.06 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc, registering a 5.1% CAGR therein
Plans for implementation and sustainability
My tractions so far are formaldehyde, acetic acid, dimethyl ether, gasoline, solvents, methanol to olefins, methyl tart butyl ether, methyl methacrylate and other chemical producing companies, have also checked on plasltics and paints producing company which use formaldehyde as their feedstock also based on end-use industry, the market has been segregated into transportation, building and construction, electrical and electronics, packaging, paints and coatings, pharmaceuticals, water treatment and others also farmes for the consumption of the fertilizers. Electricty for household users. Right now idea is all we got
My Name is isah Abdulrahman am from Kebbi State Nigeria I study chemical engineering in Ahmadu Bello University Zaria Nigeria have always think of how to reduce the amount of waste in Nigeria and also the the amount of usage of fossil fuel. I realised Human activities around the world has resulted in generation of wastes, some of these waste litter the streets, clog drains, disrupt aquatic life and causes air pollution when disposed by open incineration. Global MSW estimated generation in 2015 is about 1.3 billion tons per year with an estimated annual growth rate of 4 to 5.6% in developed nations and 2 to 3% in developing nations. Fossil fuel expenditure is expected to inflate by 42% from year 2015 to 2025 due to extensive usage of fuel products which also raise serious environmental issues such as greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
