Wastewater sludge in bioelectricity generation using microbial fuel cells
Ömeroğlu, Seçil; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
Today, the majority of world’s energy is provided by fossil fuels which soon will be exploited. This pressure forces countries to investigate renewable energy technologies like microbial fuel cells (MFCs). MFCs can convert chemical energy in organic matter into electricity via microbial activity. The objective of this study was to investigate the operational parameters and interactions within the MFCs to overcome the challenges that limit their full scale applications. This study started with optimization e...
Wastewater treatment plants discharges disseminated more Giardia than Cryptosporidium
Onursal, Asli; İçgen, Bülent (2023-02-01)
Parasitic protozoaGiardia intestinalisandCryptosporidium parvumare causative agents for giardiasis and cryptosporidiosis, respectively. These infections are mostly associated with waterborne diseases. The discharges from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) that reach surface waters cause waterborne transmission because there are no regulations for monitoring these protozoa. This emphasizes how crucial the removal capacities of WWTPs to prevent the spread of infectious parasitic pathogens. For this reason, i...
Sewage sludge as a source of microplastics in the environment: A review of occurrence and fate during sludge treatment
Hatinoğlu, M. Dilara; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2021-10-01)
Modern wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) effectively remove microplastics (MPs) from wastewater and unsurprisingly concentrate them in sludge. Hence through its beneficial use and disposal, sludge causes secondary release pathways of an estimated average amount of 106 to 1014 wastewater-based MPs to various environmental compartments yearly. Despite these numbers, studies investigating sludge are scarce. Currently, majority of the studies in the field focus on identifying the magnitude of the problem, whe...
