Maximizing the energy potential of urban sludge treatment: An experimental study and a scenario-based energy analysis focusing on anaerobic digestion with ultrasound pretreatment and sludge combustion
Çelebi, Emrehan Berkay; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2021-04-01)
With stricter regulations and concerns over sustainability, combustion can be a beneficial handling method as dried sludge can be used as an energy source. Anaerobic digestion of sludge also provides energy in the form of ...
Co-digestion Potential of Industrial Sludges with Municipal Sludge
Aksu Bahceci, Hazal; SANİN, SELİM LATİF; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2021-03-01)
Anaerobic digestion found limited use in sludges from industrial wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). So, it is of interest to assess the biodegradability and co-digestion performance of industrial sludges of biological or...
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...
Assessment of fuel quality parameters of sewage sludge samples from different treatment schemes
Atak, Onur; Atimtay, Aysel; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2018-05-01)
The fuel quality of dried sewage sludge samples was investigated to assess their potential use as auxiliary fuel in combustion processes. Dewatered sewage sludge samples were taken from six wastewater treatment plants in T...
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...
