The anaerobic treatability and methane generation potential of the wastewaters of the three important agro-industries in Turkey, namely, cheese-making, poultry breeding and the olive-oil mill industries were studied. Biochemical methane potential (BMP) experiments were conducted for different initial chemical oxygen demand (COD) concentrations. The results indicate that anaerobic treatment was possible for all the wastewaters studied and the biogas produced had a high methane content.


Anaerobic biotransformation and methane generation potential of cheese whey in batch and UASB reactors
Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande; GÜVEN, ENGİN; DEMİRER, GÖKSEL NİYAZİ (2001-03-01)
Anaerobic treatability and methane generation potential of cheese whey were determined in batch reactors. Furthermore, the effect of nutrient and trace metal supplementation on the batch anaerobic treatment, and the high-rate anaerobic treatability of cheese whey in upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactors were investigated. To this purpose biochemical methane potential experiments were conducted and single- and two-stage UASB reactors with granular cultures were operated. In UASB experiments signifi...
Carbon-based conductive materials enhance biomethane recovery from organic wastes: A review of the impacts on anaerobic treatment
Kutlar, Feride Ece; Tunca, Berivan; Yılmazel, Yasemin Dilşad (2022-03-01)
Amongst the most important sustainable waste management strategies, anaerobic biotechnology has had a central role over the past century in the management of high-pollution load sources, such as food, agricultural and municipal wastes. During anaerobic digestion (AD), valuable by-products such as digestate and biogas are produced. Biogas (mainly composed of methane) is generated through a series of reactions between bacteria and archaea. Enhancement of AD process with higher methane yield, accelerated metha...
Anaerobic acidification of sugar-beet processing wastes: Effect of operational parameters
Alkaya, Emrah; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (Elsevier BV, 2011-01-01)
The objective of this study was to maximize the hydrolysis and acidification of sugar-beet processing wastewater and beet pulp for volatile fatty acid (VFA) production through acidogenic anaerobic metabolism. Experiments were conducted to determine the optimum operational conditions (HRT, waste-mixing ratio and pH) for effective acidification in daily-fed, continuously mixed anaerobic reactors. For this purpose, reactors were operated at 35 +/- 1 degrees C with different combinations of HRT (2-4 days), wast...

In this paper, the direct liquefaction of Turkish Nigde-Ulukisla oil shale in noncatalytic and catalytic conditions was studied. The effects of pressure, tetralin/oil shale ratio, catalyst type and concentration, reaction time and temperature and oil shale/waste paper ratio on the process were investigated. It was found that tetralin/oil shale ratio had no considerable effect on the total and liquefaction products conversions under the noncatalytic conditions. Fe2O3, MoO3, Mo(CO)(6), Cr(CO)(6) and zeolite w...
Environmental impact assessment law and practice : The EU and Turkey
Tekayak, Deniz; Şenyuva, Özgehan; Department of European Studies (2013)
Since its introduction, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has become an important tool for planning, environmental management, environmental decision making and environmental preservation in European Union (EU) and in Turkey as well. This thesis provides an overview of the EU’s and Turkey’s EIA law and practice by discussing current transposition and implementation problems. After discussing socio-economic and cultural reasons which played significant role in transposition and practical application prob...
