Effect of operational parameters on anaerobic co-digestion of dairy cattle manure and agricultural residues: A case study for the Kahramanmaras region in Turkey

Alkaya, Emrah
Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of temperature and hydraulic retention time (HRT) on anaerobic co-digestion/biomethanation of cattle manure and agricultural residues (clover, grass and wheat straw). For this purpose, 12 semi-continuous reactors, fed with/without agricultural residues, were operated under varied temperature (10 +/-, 20 +/- and 35 +/- 1 degrees C) and HRT (20 and 30 days) conditions. During the experimental study, all reactors were fed once on a daily basis and operated with an organic loading rate of 3 g volatile solids (VS)/L x d. Daily biogas production, pH, biogas composition, volatile fatty acids, chemical oxygen demand and solids' (dry matter andVS) concentrations were analyzed. Results indicate that the effect of agricultural residue addition did not influence the rate and extent of biomethanation of cattle manure. An effect of temperature was clearly observed on reactor performance for both operational HRTs of 20 and 30 days. At 35 +/- 1 degrees C, reactors produced 299-324 mL biogas/g VS added, whereas this value remained between 87-138 mL biogas/g VS for the reactors run at 20+ degrees C. The results were comparable to the studies performed on anaerobic digestion of cattle manure in terms of both methane production yield (39-182 mL CH4/g VS added) and dry matter reduction efficiencies (33-51%).


Effect of dispersed phase feed time on the droplet size of Pickering emulsions produced in a stirred tank
Donmez, Dila; Ayrancı Tansık, İnci (Wiley, 2020-06-01)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of feed time of the oil phase on the average droplet size of Pickering emulsions produced in stirred tanks. Three types of impellers were tested: RT, up-pumping PBT (PBTU), and down-pumping PBT (PBTD). All the impellers were tested at two sizes, T/3 and T/2. All configurations were compared at constant tip speed, power per mass, and impeller Reynolds number. The droplet diameters were measured in Mastersizer (R) 3,000 (Malvern). The results showed that an ...
Effect of initial COD concentration, nutrient addition, temperature and microbial acclimation on anaerobic treatability of broiler and cattle manure
Gungor-Demirci, G; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (2004-06-01)
In this study, anaerobic treatability and biogas generation potential of broiler and cattle manure were investigated. For this purpose, seven sets of anaerobic batch reactor experiments were performed using broiler and cattle manure and their mixtures in five different ratios (100% broiler; 75% broiler, 25% cattle; 50% broiler, 50% cattle; 25% broiler, 75% cattle; 100% cattle). These manure mixtures had two different initial chemical oxygen demand (COD) (12,000 and 53,500 mg/l) concentrations. The effects o...
Effects of bromide ion and natural organic matter fractions on the formation and speciation of chlorination by-products
Ates, Nuray; Yetiş, Ülkü; Kitis, Mehmet (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2007-10-01)
The impacts of bromide concentration and natural organic matter (NOM) characteristics on the formation and speciation of disinfection by-products (DBPs) in chlorinated NOM fractions were investigated. A total of 20 bulk water NOM fractions with a wide range of specific ultraviolet (UV) absorbance (SUVA(254)) values were obtained from a source water employing XAD-8 or XAD-4 resin adsorption in completely mixed batch reactors. SUVA was not a good predictor of DBP [trihalomethanes (THMs), haloacetic acids (HAA...
Effect of starvation on the adhesive properties of xenobiotic degrading bacteria
Sanin, SL; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Bryers, JD (Elsevier BV, 2003-01-31)
The purpose of this study was to observe the effects of different starvation conditions on the surface characteristics and adhesive properties of bacteria. Three pure culture xenobiotic degrading bacteria were used in this study: Pseudomonas sp. strain A, Pseudomonas sp. strain D and Rhodococcus corallinus strain 11. These microorganisms were selected for to their ability to degrade cyanuric acid, which is a derivative of s-Triazine, a common herbicide. These microorganisms were separately starved for carbo...
Effects of pH and feeding strategy on metabolite profiling of beta-lactamase producing bacillus licheniformis
İler, Nazar; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2005)
In this study, the effects of pH and different feeding modes on beta-lactamase production and cell metabolism were investigated with Bacillus licheniformis (ATCC 25972). For this purpose, first, the effects of pH on beta-lactamase activity, cell formation, substrate consumption, as well as intracellular sodium, potassium, ammonium ion, amino acid and organic acid concentrations were investigated in V= 3.0 dm3 batch bioreactors consisting of temperature, pH, foam, stirring rate and dissolved oxygen controls....
