Projects
From 2012 to -:, Investigation of performance characteristics of high-density briquettes produced from sawmill wastes , The project investigates the performance characteristics of high-density briquettes produced from sawdust under high pressure and temperature densification process
From 2007 to 2009:, Design and performance evaluation of a vertical disc chipper , Design, fabrication and peThis study focused on the design of a wood chipper to meet these criteria and high value fiber products as well as to reduce environmental hazards resulting from stock piling and waste burning. Since end-use processing requirements are increasing and equipment development improves, costs must be carefully controlled to maintain process economics. In addition, wood waste transportation costs in Nigeria are high, new processing alternatives should be developed to reduce such costs and expand the local processing industry
From 1996 to 1997:, Design, fabrication and performance evaluation of cowpea sheller , Detail design of machine elements, material selection and material factors are given consideration in the development of the machine and its performance
Speciality
 Renewable energy resources ( Solar and biomass technologies)
 Wood waste management & composite development
 Agricultural machinery design, optimization & safety
