A number of studies have so far been conducted to assess the magnitude of pollution generated by domestic and industrial sources in the Istanbul Metropolitan Area. They indicate that a management scheme for wastewater treatment and disposal should involve a total discharge of 15.4 m3 s-1 with a potential pollution load of 330 tons BOD5 day-1 for 1990. A scheme of this magnitude inevitably requires careful evaluation of receiving water characteristics, both from an oceanographic and a quality standpoint.
Waste inventory for a refrigerator manufacturing plant
Dönmezoğlu, Cansu; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
Household appliances production, especially refrigerators, has an important share in the economy of many countries in the world and Turkey. Yet, waste production during production constitutes a problem that should be managed. For that purpose, it is important to identify the wastes from production and evaluate the environmental performance based on these wastes. In this thesis, production processes in a refrigerator manufacturing facility in Turkey are examined. Hazardous, non-hazardous and packaging wastes...
Landfill site selection and landfill liner design for Polatlı, Ankara.
Öner, Gökal; Akgün, Haluk; Department of Geological Engineering (2019)
The purpose of this study is to select the best alternative for a landfill site for the Polatlı County. There currently is no proper landfill site in the county. Renewable materials are sent to the Ankara-Mamak Landfill site and the remaining waste material is deposited in an improper open dump site that is situated to the south of the county. Because of all these problems, the county urgently needs a proper landfill site with a landfill liner system. In the context of this thesis, site selection has been p...
Waste minimization in a bleach plant
Doğan, Ilgın; Guruz, AG (Elsevier BV, 2004-03-01)
In this study a steady-state model was developed for a six stage bleaching system in a pulp and paper industry. A FORTRAN source code was written to simulate the whole bleach plant. Different case studies were performed with the aim of decreasing the total amount of dissolved solids coming out from the six washers. Each stage of the sequence is composed of chemical additions and mixing, reaction in a retention tower, and washing. Unit operation models were formulated using mass balances on liquor, fibres, c...
Landfill site selection and landfill liner design for Ankara
Yal, Gözde Pınar; Akgün, Haluk; Department of Geological Engineering (2010)
The main scope of this thesis is to select alternative landfill sites for Ankara based on the growing trends of Ankara towards the Sincan and Gölbaşı municipalities and to eventually select the best alternative. Landfill site selection was carried out utilizing Geographic Information System (GIS) and Multi-Criteria-Decision-Analysis (MCDA). A number of criteria were gathered in a GIS environment. Each criterion was assigned a weight value by applying the Pairwise Comparison Method (PCM). “The Technique for ...
