Food, Agriculture and Biological Engineering
Within the with ARIST program, Princeton University, procedures are in place to evaluate control and treated water samples from environmental engineering projects. Current projects include the use porous materials for water filtration, novel food composites for improved nutrition and kenaf as a biofiltration media to reduce odor of the waste water in a local Malete village in Kwara State where agriculture and beef cattle grazing operation is the main stay of commercial activities. The development and evaluation of best management practices for surface water management, food produce, evaluation of farming operations, the evaluation of spray deposition and drift of agricultural chemicals forms the bench mark for research in Food, Agric and Biological Engineering. These projects involve collaborative work with engineers and scientists in Materials Science Engineering, Animal and Dairy Sciences, Food Science and Technology, and Entomology and Plant Pathology.
