  1. Whole-Genome Sequences of Two Multidrug-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii Strains Isolated from Patients with Urinary Tract Infection in Ghana

    Agyepong N, Govinden U, Owusu-Ofori A, Allam M, Ismail A, Pedersen T, Sundsfjord A, Essack S. 2019. Whole-genome sequences of two multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii strains isolated from patients with urinary tract infection in Ghana. Microbiol Resour Announc 8:e00270-19.

  2. Salancrete Building Blocks From A Mixture Of Sand, Laterite And Cement For Sustainable Housing Construction In Ghana

    This paper assesses the suitability of Salancrete block – mixture of sand, laterite and cement – for urban housing delivery in Ghana. Three Salancrete blocks were moulded from four lateritic soil samples obtained from Fiapre, Magazine, Kotokrom and S-Poly, all in the Sunyani Municipality. Also, three blocks each were moulded for sandcrete and landcrete (laterite and cement), using 10% cement content in each case. The 28-day compressive strength values were 5.76, 3.78 and 3.09 N/mm2 for Salancrete, Sandcrete and Landcrete respectively. It was concluded that combining laterite and sand will produce a more suitable block input for sustainable housing delivery in Ghana.

  3. Towards A Sustainable Ceramic Industry In Ghana: An Assessment Of The Working Environment Using Five Forces Industrial Model

    This paper discussed ceramics as an industry that is capable of improving Ghana’s economy and providing direct and indirect employment, and penetrating the international market. The working environments of the companies within the local industry were analysed using the Porter’s Five Forces Industrial Model which revealed that the Ghanaian Ceramic Companies are competitively weak in the areas of exports, and not able to compete favourably with new entrants, although, strong in the area of raw materials and resource inputs. Study showed that the challenges within the industry can be nipped in the bud if academia, industry and government work indivisibly.
