Effects of anaerobic digestion enhanced by ultrasound pretreatment on the fuel properties of municipal sludge
Çelebi, Emrehan Berkay; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Sanin, Faika Dilek (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-05-01)
In this study, effects of ultrasound pretreatment on combustion characteristics and elemental composition of municipal sludge were examined for energy-based evaluation of sludge pretreatment. Waste activated sludge (WAS) f...
Change of microbial community composition in anaerobic digesters during the degradation of nonylphenol diethoxylate
Murdoch, Fadime Kara; Murdoch, Robert W.; Gültekin, Güzin Candan; Sanin, Faika Dilek (Elsevier BV, 2018-11-01)
Nonylphenol polyethoxylate (NPnEO) surfactants, ubiquitous contaminants in sewage processing facilities, continue to receive attention due to their recalcitrance and diverse toxicity concerns. How the addition of nonyiphen...
Co-combustion of sewage sludge from different treatment processes and a lignite coal in a laboratory scale combustor
Sever Akdağ, Ayşe; Atak, Onur; Atımtay, Aysel; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2018-09-01)
One sustainable use of sewage sludge (SS) is to use it as fuel in existing coal-fired plants. Towards this end, this study evaluated thermal characteristics and co-combustion efficiency of dried SS samples from six wastewa...
A comparative evaluation of anaerobic dechlorination of PCB-118 and Aroclor 1254 in sediment microcosms from three PCB-impacted environments
Kaya, Devrim; İmamoğlu, İpek; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Sowers, Kevin R. (Elsevier BV, 2018-01-05)
Aroclor 1254 (A1254) is the most toxic commercial PCB mixture produced, primarily due to its relatively high concentrations of dioxin-like congeners. This study demonstrates a comparative evaluation of dechlorination of A1...

Potential risk reduction of Aroclor 1254 by microbial dechlorination in anaerobic Grasse River sediment microcosms
Kaya, Devrim; İmamoğlu, İpek; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Payne, Rayford B.; Sowers, Kevin R. (Elsevier BV, 2017-01-05)
Aroclor 1254 was the second most produced commercial PCB mixture and is found in soils, sediments and sewage throughout the globe. This commercial PCB mixture is considered particularly toxic because of the relatively high...
Guluronic acid content as a factor affecting turbidity removal potential of alginate
Moral, Cigdem Kivilcimdan; Ertesvag, Helga; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2016-11-01)
Alginates are natural polymers composed of mannuronic and guluronic acid residues. They are currently extracted from brown algae; however, alginate can also be synthesized by some species of Azotobacter and Pseudomonas. Al...
Bioelectricity Generation From Wastewater Sludge Using Microbial Fuel Cells: A Critical Review
Omerogiu, Secil; Sanin, Faika Dilek (Wiley, 2016-09-01)
Today, the majority of the world's energy is provided by fossil fuels. Natural energy resources soon will be consumed as a result of rising energy needs of the growing population, leading to a global energy crisis. The ins...
Biotransformation of Nonylphenol Diethoxylate in anaerobic digesters: Accumulation of metabolites and their effects on digester performance
Murdoch, Fadime Kara; Sanin, Faika Dilek (Elsevier BV, 2016-05-01)
Nonylphenol(poly)ethoxylates (NPnEOs) have caused great concern over the last few decades due to their lipophilic, hydrophobic, and toxic properties. NPnEOs can be degraded to a certain extent in wastewater treatment plant...
Comparison of fuel value and combustion characteristics of two different RDF samples
Akdağ, Akın; Atımtay, Aysel; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2016-01-01)
Generation of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) tends to increase with the growing population and economic development of the society; therefore, establishing environmentally sustainable waste management strategies is crucial. I...
