Oil Mill
An OIL MILL is a grinding mill designed to crush or bruise oil-bearing seeds, such as linseed or peanuts , or other oil-rich vegetable material, such as olives or the fruit of the oil palm , which can then be pressed to extract vegetable oils , which may used as foods or for cooking, as oleochemical feedstocks , as lubricants , or as biofuels . The pomace or press cake - the remaining solid material from which the oil has been extracted - may also be used as a food or fertilizer. CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 Modern oil mills * 3 See also * 4 References HISTORYOil-rich vegetable materials have been processed mechanically to extract the valuable oils for thousands of years, typically using vertical millstones moving around a central post (edge runner stones or kollergangs in an edge mill ) to crush or bruise the seeds or fruit which can then be stamped or pressed to extract the oil. A treadmill , windmill or watermill was later used to drive the milling and pressing machinery, replaced in modern times with steam and later other power sources. In some areas, watermills may be "double" water mills, with machinery for grinding wheat on one side of the watercourse and machinery for extracting oils on the other side. Historical windmills could process between 100 and 200 tons of raw materials per year

Niger Delta
The NIGER DELTA is the delta of the Niger River sitting directly on the Gulf of Guinea on the Atlantic Ocean in Nigeria . It is typically considered to be located within nine coastal southern Nigerian states, which include: all six states from the South South geopolitical zone, one state (Ondo ) from South West geopolitical zone and two states (Abia and Imo ) from South East geopolitical zone. Of all the states that the region covers, only Cross River is not an oil-producing state. Niger Delta is a very densely populated region sometimes called the OIL RIVERS because it was once a major producer of palm oil . The area was the British Oil Rivers Protectorate from 1885 until 1893, when it was expanded and became the Niger Coast Protectorate . The delta is a petroleum-rich region, and has been the centre of international controversy over pollution, corruption (notably by the Abacha regime), and human rights violations
