Biohydrogen production from barley straw hydrolysate through sequential dark and photofermentation
Ozgur, Ebru; Peksel, Begum (Elsevier BV, 2013-08-01)
Biohydrogen production by sequential operation of dark and photo-fermentation processes is a promising method to produce hydrogen from renewable resources, in a sustainable way. In this study, barley straw hydrolysate (BSEI) dark fermenter effluent (DFE) was used as the biomass feedstock for biohydrogen production through photofermentation. Two different dark fermentation effluents were obtained by performing fermentation with or without addition of yeast extract (YE), using hyperthermophilic dark fermentat...
Sustainable textile production: a case study from a woven fabric manufacturing mill in Turkey
Alkaya, Emrah; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (Elsevier BV, 2014-02-15)
The aim of this research was to investigate the applicability of different sustainable production measures and demonstrate environmental and economical benefits in a woven fabric manufacturing mill in Bursa, Turkey. As a result of an Environmental Performance Evaluation (EPE) evaluation, five sustainable production applications were proposed and implemented to decrease water consumption, wastewater generation, energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and salt (NaCl) consumption in the company. As a resu...
Evaluating the mine plan alternatives with respect to bottom-up and top-down sustainability criteria
Yaylaci, Evren Deniz; Düzgün, Hafize Şebnem (Elsevier BV, 2017-11-20)
The previous researches on sustainability evaluation for the mining sector indicate that the tailor-made integrated frameworks should have the capabilities of integrating the stakeholder-focused information as effectively as operational information into the evaluation and reporting process. In this regard, this paper proposes an indicator-based quantitative evaluation framework for integrating the concerns and priorities of the local stakeholders into the evaluation of sustainability in the mining sector op...
Biohydrogen production from cattle manure and its mixtures with renewable feedstock by hyperthermophilic Caldicellulosiruptor bescii
Yılmazel Tokel, Yasemin Dilşad (Elsevier BV, 2021-04-10)
© 2021 Elsevier LtdFermentation of cattle manure as the sole carbon source and along with the mixtures of switchgrass and wastewater biosolids by hyperthermophilic cellulolytic bacterium, Caldicellulosiruptor bescii was assessed for the first time in the literature. When cattle manure was used as the sole carbon source, a yield of 82.5 NmL/gVSadded was recorded and that is the highest yield reported from dark fermentation studies on cattle manure so far. The mixture of cattle manure with wastewater biosolid...
Minimization of water and chemical use in a cotton/polyester fabric dyeing textile mill
Ozturk, Emrah; KÖSEOĞLU, Hasan; KARABOYACI, Mustafa; YİĞİT, Nevzat Özgü; Yetiş, Ülkü; KİTİŞ, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2016-09-01)
Water, wastewater and chemical minimization studies were carried out in a textile mill employing cotton-polyester weaving-knitting and subsequently dyeing-finishing. Detailed on-site investigations and analysis on production processes were performed according to Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control principles. Specific consumptions in wet processes were calculated by mass balance analyses. Water/wastewater samples were collected and various parameters were analyzed. Specific wastewater generations an...
