ST&I POLICY IN AFRICA • •

• • •

ECOWAS now has a regional desk on ST &I at the headquarters. It now has a draft ST &I Policy. At the AU level there is now a very proactive partnership between African union and the European union on ST &I . Also the continental Programme which is the Consolidated Plan of Action CPA on ST &I launched in 2005/2006 is now being reviewed. Also AU is expanding the programme on Science Technology Innovation Indicators to assist every country to assess its ST &I system. The AU is also pushing forever member country to invest at least 1% of it's GDP on R&D AU is also facilitating for the establishment of the Pan African Intellectual Property Organization PAIPO.

In all these initiatives Nigeria is either spearheading or fully involved.

CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY

DELIVERABLES • Industrial chemicals from agricultural and solid minerals • Fabrication technology for these process technologies

Prof. Ita Okon Bassey Ewa, May 17, 2012


CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY MILESTONES (CURRENT ADMINISTRATION) 

Design of pilot plant for the production of Industrial Chemicals (such as methanol, ethanol, ammonia, etc) from municipal solid wastes and coal Design for Urea fertilizer production from the same feedstock above Fabrication technology for tomato paste production in collaboration with Vietnam Fabrication of castor seed Sheller to enhance the development of the castor industry in Nigeria.

Prof. Ita Okon Bassey Ewa, May 17, 2012


CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY IMPACT ON THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC LIFE OF NIGERIANS  Coal utilisation can create one million jobs in Nigeria in 3 years  MSW industry can create 250,000 jobs in three years  Tomato paste industry can create 500,000 jobs in 3 years including export potentials  Castor seed processing can create 150,000 jobs in 3 years  Utilization of coal for industrial chemicals production will create jobs and save foreign exchange  Municipal solid wastes, which are environmental hazards, is now being converted to wealth as well providing a cleaner environment

Prof. Ita Okon Bassey Ewa, May 17, 2012


CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY INTERNATIONAL RELEVANCE & COMPETITIVENESS  Liquid fuels from coal technology is a high-tech area and Nigeria venturing into it is a necessary precondition in attaining Vision 20:2020.  The skills to be acquired will make us globally competitive.

POSSIBLE TECHNOLOGICAL TRANSFER ( TECHNOLOGY DIFFUSION RATE, PATENTS)  Technology transfer in the complete design cycle for petrochemicals industry in Nigeria to avoid the mistakes made in Petroleum Refining Industry  Vietnam is transferring her simple technology in tomato paste processing to Nigeria through NARICT

CONCLUSIONS 1.

The FMST has several products awaiting commercialization via linkages with entrepreneurs

2.

The FMST poised to establish clusters so as to provide organized structures to synergise institutional cohesion with services to rural communities to take advantage of the various technologies domesticated

3.Nigerians Should take advantage of – a) Satellite Resources available for commercialization

– b) Other Products that are fully developed also ready for commercialization
