Generator Emissions: Nigerian Govt To Commence House-to-House Inspection In Jan. 2019

Generator Emissions: Nigerian Govt To Commence House-to-House Inspection In Jan. 2019
The federal government has reportedly unveiled its plans to commence house to house inspection of generator emissions in January 2019.
Leadership Newspaper reports that Lawrence Anukam, the Director-General of the National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA), made this known on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, while addressing newsmen in Abuja on the ‘implementation of the National Generator Emission Control Programme (NGECP).
According to him, the NGECP project is aimed at creating a cleaner environment which will in turn translate to economic growth.
Anukam further stated that by implementing the programme, the agency was directly or indirectly reducing the burden of respiratory diseases accompanied by inhaling huge amount of emission.
He revealed that indiscriminate use of generators for both domestic and industrial power supply and the harmful pollutants such as Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx), Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO2) and unburnt hydrocarbons emitted from generators had contributed to poor air quality which negatively affected the environment and human health.
The DG pointed out that NGECP would assist federal government in taking inventory of the type, model, age, location and type of generators currently in use in the country, asserting that it would discourage the use of Nigeria as dumping ground for dead and overused equipment.
It is also understood that the exercise would also capture commercial areas in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in the pilot phase, after which it would be extended to other states across the country.
