Cleaner production oppotunity assessment for market milk production in Atatürk Orman Çiftliği (AOÇ) facility

Özbay, Arzu
In this study, possible cleaner production opportunities for a dairy processing facility are examined, considering the market milk production process. Cleaner production concept and its key tools of implementation were analyzed to build the basis of study. General production process and its resulting environmental loads are discussed by taking possible CP opportunities as the axis of study. A methodology is developed for cleaner production opportunity assessment in Milk Processing Facility of Atatürk Orman Ciftligi. The methodology covers two major steps; preparation of checklists for assisting auditing and opportunity assessment; implementation of the mass balance analysis. For mass balance analysis, measurements and experimental analysis of the mass flows are utilized to determine the inputs and outputs. Prepared check lists are utilized to determine waste reduction options that could be implemented. Selected opportunities are evaluated considering its environmental benefits and economic feasibility.


Cleaner production opportunity assessment for a milk processing facility
Ozbay, A.; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (Elsevier BV, 2007-09-01)
Possible cleaner production (CP) opportunities for a milk processing facility were examined in this study. The CP concept and its key tools of implementation were used to assess the potential CP opportunities in the facility studied. The general production process and its resulting environmental loads were investigated by taking possible CP opportunities as the basis of study. The methodology developed for CP opportunity assessment in the milk processing facility covered two major steps: preparation of chec...
Cleaner production opportunity assessment study in SEKA Balikesir pulp and paper mill
Avsar, E.; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (2008-01-01)
This study was designed to apply cleaner production concepts in a Turkish pulp and paper mill, for the first time in Turkey, to introduce the concept as well as to provide a framework for future initiatives. To achieve this objective a comprehensive waste reduction audit was conducted at SEKA Balikesir pulp and paper mill. First, audit schemes from different sources were examined and compiled that resulted in the methodology employed in this work. The audit covered water emissions and water usage. Then, the...
Multi-item inventory-routing problem for an FMCG company
Zerman, Erel; Kırca, Ömer; Department of Industrial Engineering (2007)
In this study, inventoryrouting system of a company operating in Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry is analyzed. The company has decided to redesign distribution system by locating regional warehouses between production plants and customers. The warehouses in the system are all allowed to hold stock without any capacity restriction. The customers are replenished by the warehouse to which they have been assigned. Customer stocks are continuously monitored by the warehouse and deliveries are to be sch...
Use of biodiesel byproduct crude glycerol as the carbon source for fermentation processes by recombinant Pichia pastoris
Celik, Eda; Ozbay, Nalan; OKTAR, NURAY; Çalık, Pınar (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2008-05-07)
The aim of this study is to investigate the efficiency of using crude glycerol, the main byproduct of biodiesel industry, directly in the production media of Pichia pastoris fermentation processes. Different biodiesel synthesis conditions were examined, that is, transesterifications of canola, corn, soybean, and sunflower oils, with pure methanol in a molar ratio of 1:6 or 1:3, using 1% or 0.5% (w/v) NaOH as the catalyst. Among these, canola oil-derived glycerol served as the most favorable carbon source, a...
Production of thermostable beta-galactosidase from tyhermophilic fungi for use in low-lactose milk production
Soydan, Meltem; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Department of Food Engineering (2006)
The aim of this research was the production of beta-galactosidase from thermophilic fungi for use in low lactose milk production or other possible applications. For this purpose, three thermophilic fungi Humicola insolens, Torula thermophila and Thermomyces lanuginosus were screened for lactase production. Highest lactase activity was observed in Thermomyces lanuginosus. The carbon source inducing highest extracellular lactase production in Thermomyces lanuginosus was determined as arabinose. When grown on ...
