Chemical explosion and fire risk assessment is conducted for a textile mill in Turkey. The study is within the framework of the first implementation of the EC Directive on Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC Directive) (96/61/EC) before legal transposition of the directive. Carrying out risk assessments in industrial facilities is necessary to comply with IPPC. Industrial accidents should also be investigated within the framework of the Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents Directive (98/685/EC). The study aims to conduct a semi-quantitative risk analysis for a textile mill. The present risk analysis focuses on risks arising from flammable and combustible chemicals. Accordingly, risky units and the associated risks are determined first. Then a suitable method for a semi-quantitative risk analysis is selected. To rank hazards in terms of risk levels, a matrix method is used. The highest risks turn out to be the knock-on effects of an explosion on other industrial facilities. The danger of a dust explosion and vapor cloud explosion occurring is ranked high as well. Overall a chemical warehouse possesses the highest risk level.


Risk assessment for a denim manufacturing plant in Turkey
Arda (Mungan), Meral; Yetiş, Ülkü; Department of Environmental Engineering (2008)
A risk assessment study is conducted in a denim manufacturing plant in Turkey. The study is carried out within the framework of a project on adopting the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directive of the European Union. The scope of the assessment is fire or explosion risk with regards to hazardous chemicals present in the plant. The receptor of the study is defined as “people”; which include the employees in the plant, employees of nearby plants and people in residential around the mill. ...
Seismic risk prioritization of residential buildings in Istanbul
Yakut, Ahmet; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2012-09-01)
A large scale seismic risk prioritization study was conducted for medium-rise, gravity-designed reinforced concrete residential buildings in Istanbul. The implemented procedure was based on evaluating selected building parameters that could be easily observed or measured during a systematic sidewalk survey. The survey was actually conducted on approximately 100,000 buildings in the six subprovinces of Istanbul over the period 20042009 by a large team of trained surveyors. The collected data were processed t...
Occupational accidents and diseases in turkish construction industry
Taşyürek, Yunus Emre; Gündüz, Murat; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
The aim of this thesis is to determine the state of occupational health and safety of the construction industry among other industries in Turkey. For this purpose, data such as the number of occupational diseases, the number of occupational injuries, the number of cases of permanent incapacity to work and the number of fatal occupational injuries in each industry are derived from official sources. The comparison of the construction industry with other industries in terms of occupational health and safety is...
Sustainable textile production: cleaner production assessment/eco-efficiency analysis study in a textile mill
Ozturk, Emrah; KÖSEOĞLU, Hasan; KARABOYACI, Mustafa; YİĞİT, Nevzat Özgü; Yetiş, Ülkü; KİTİŞ, Mehmet (2016-12-01)
Cleaner production assessment studies were carried out according to the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control and Industrial Emission Directive in a cotton/polyester fabric finishing-dyeing textile mill, located in Denizli, Turkey. Following detailed on-site process evaluation, environmental performance of the mill was evaluated. Data of the material flow and the energy consumption in all processes was collected. Mass-energy balances and specific input and output values based on the production process...
Investigation of the spatial relationship of municipal solid waste generation in Turkey with socio-economic, demographic and climatic factors
Keser, Saniye; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Department of Environmental Engineering (2010)
This thesis investigates the significant factors affecting municipal solid waste (MSW) generation in Turkey. For this purpose, both spatial and non-spatial tech¬niques are utilized. Non-spatial technique is ordinary least squares (OLS) regression while spatial techniques employed are simultaneous spatial autoregression (SAR) and geographically weighted regression (GWR). The independent variables include socio-economic, demographic and climatic indicators. The results show that nearer provinces tend to have ...
