Sources of Air Pollution and Strategies for Its Management in The Nigerian Urban Cities

Authors : Bolaji, B.O.

Abstract: This study examines sources of air pollution and strategies for its management in the urban cities. Emphasis is laid on industrial air pollution and vehicular emission, which are the major urban air polluters. Various gases that are emitted by industries into the atmosphere near and around dwelling places were analyzed. Also analyzed is the combustion of large quantity of transportation fuels in the urban cities, which releases several contaminants into the atmosphere. These contaminants include carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, oxides of nitrogen, lead and other particulate matter. Various strategies which can be employed for the management of urban air pollution are discussed, covering stack monitoring, changing process operation and cleaning flue gases for industrial emissions and changing fuel type, removing gross polluters, cleaning vehicle exhaust gases and traffic management for vehicular emissions.
