Abstract

Modern industries introduce some newly improved equipment to enhance the level of productivities and to increase their output to meet up the demand of the customer. In the process of doing that, most organizations do not consider the rate at which waste and pollution are been generated and ways of reducing generation of these waste and pollution. According to the case considered in this research work, evaluation of industrial equipment for waste and pollution control was undertaken so as to give insight on how these equipment generate waste and pollution. From the results obtained on selected manufacturing industries in Nigeria, hypotheses reveal great significant relationship in the evaluation of industrial equipment for waste and pollution control. Analysis of the result reveals that gender and marital status have significant effects on waste and pollution generation by industrial equipment. The maturity of age of the workers as well as their educational qualifications have significant effects, considering the hypothesis on statistical data generated from the questionnaire and other data collected.
