The aim of this study is to develop a membrane-based treatment scheme to remove colorants from the effluent of a baker's yeast plant. For this purpose microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF) and nanofiltraton (NF) membranes with differing molecular weight cut-offs (MWCOs) were tested. To evaluate the effectiveness of membrane processes in treating the waste stream, optical density (OD), COD, color measurements together with permeation fluxes were used. Effects of pretreatment methods (coagulation and coa...

Decolorization of sugar syrups using commercial and sugar beet pulp based activated carbons
Mudoga, H. L.; Yücel, Hayrettin; Kincal, N. S. (2008-06-01)
Sugar syrup decolorization was studied using two commercial and eight beet pulp based activated carbons. In an attempt to relate decolorizing performances to other characteristics, surface areas, pore volumes, bulk densities and ash contents of the carbons in the powdered form; pH and electrical conductivities of their suspensions and their color adsorption properties from iodine and molasses solution were determined. The color removal capabilities of all carbons were measured at 1/100 (w/w) dosage, and iso...
Decolorization of Synthetic Dye Solutions by Using Basaltic Tephra and Clinoptilolite
Duygulu, Yusuf Bahadır; Atımtay, Aysel; Department of Environmental Engineering (2004)
Discharge of colored effluents without decoloration originated from textile industries may cause serious problems in the receiving environments. In this study, natural materials that are basaltic tephra and clinoptilolite were used to remove various dyestuffs used in the textile industry. Those materials are cheap and available in large quantities in Turkey. The investigation of adsorption of basic, acidic and reactive dyes on these materials is the objective of this study. During preliminary experiments it...
