Although Nigeria is a major exporter of crude oil globally, with huge revenues accruing from oil sales and exploration licenses and royalties, the country faces many challenges including: instability in supply and prices of the petroleum products with recurrent acute shortages; land degradation, environmental damage, air pollution and loss of biodiversity resulting from oil exploitation and utilization; increased poverty and loss of livelihoods in the oil rich Niger Delta; South South region, Nigeria.
With the level of Environment degradation in Nigeria, the need for low carbon economy and waste recycling became the main objective of Blanket Intercontinental Resources, scoping majorly in biofuel and waste recycling. Biofuels as viable alternatives together with waste recycling through anaerobic digestion and solid-state manufacturing process, is to solve problems associated with fossil fuels among others by reversing the carbon emission associated with the use of petroleum products (Automobiles, plant and machinery), deforestation, gas flaring, bush burning, electricity generation through combustion which all emit carbon to the surface of earth and deplete the ozone layer.
Blanket Intercontinental Resources in partnership with International Labour Organisation (ILO)Trainers has being sensitizing women in both Rural and Semi Urban areas in Nigeria with the use of biofuel cooking stove and bio-Gel in house hold which reduces the reliance on dirty solid fuels such as kerosene, wood, dung and charcoal thereby eliminating dangerous smoke and gases from home. These women together with youth are empowered and given access to renewable energy products such Bio-Fuel Gel, Bio-fuel Stove and Solar panel electricity funded via energy saving loan scheme with banks in Nigeria.
Nigeria major way of waste disposal method are through dump sites and land fills, this sooner or later are over filled thereby causing Environmental and Health Hazards, Blanket Intercontinental Resources through her expert separates these wastes into organic and synthetic thereby recycling the organic waste as manures and sold at cheap rate to farmers for their plantations; this is only done with limitation to south west region of the country due to logistics and funding constraint. The synthetic waste is being supplied to recycling company also in south west region of the country to be converted into a new product. The harshness in the atmospheric temperature and the unpredictable climate dynamics needs to be checkmate together for healthy habitants.
