PM, SO2, NO2 and CO emissions were measured by Turkish Cement Manufacturers' Association (TCMA) in cement plants by using standard techniques and equipment since 1997. Emission factors (EF) were calculated by using these available data for the cement sector. The emission factors were found both for cement and grinding-packing plants separately. The results of the study were compared with international emission factors. It was observed that Turkish Cement Sector's particulate matter emission factors are higher and SO2 emission factors are lower than the values determined for U.S.A., German, Austrian and Dutch cement sectors. When NO2 and CO emission factors are considered, they are between minimum and maximum values of international emission factors. The results showed that there is a decrease in dust emissions of Turkish cement plants, especially in the last three years during the period of regular measurements. Also, it was found that more than 90% of air pollution is emitted from primary sources of each plant which are few in number.


Analysis of the best available techniques for wastewaters from a denim manufacturing textile mill
YÜKSELER, hande; UZAL, NİĞMET; ŞAHİNKAYA, ERKAN; KİTİŞ, MEHMET; Dilek, Filiz Bengü; Yetiş, Ülkü (2017-12-01)
The present study was undertaken as the first plant scale application and evaluation of Best Available Techniques (BAT) within the context of the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control/Industrial Emissions Directive to a textile mill in Turkey. A "best practice example" was developed for the textile sector; and within this context, BAT requirements for one of the World's leading denim manufacturing textile mills were determined. In order to achieve a sustainable wastewater management; firstly, a detail...
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...
Emission characterization and delta C-13 values of parent PAHs and nitro-PAHs in size-segregated particulate matters from coal-fired power plants
Wang, Ruwei; Yousaf, Balal; Sun, Ruoyu; Zhang, Hong; Zhang, Jiamei; Liu, Guijian (2016-11-01)
The objective of this study was to characterize parent polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (pPAHs) and their nitrated derivatives (NPAHs) in coarse (PM2.5-10), intermediate (PW1-2.5) and fine (PM1) particulate matters emitted from coal-fired power plants (CFPPs) in Huainan, China. The diagnostic ratios and the stable carbon isotopic approaches to characterize individual PAHs were applied in order to develop robust tools for tracing the origins of PAHs in different size-segregated particular matters (PMs) emitt...
Breakage characteristics of cement components
Avşar, Çağatay; Hoşten, Çetin; Department of Mining Engineering (2003)
The production of multi-component cement from clinker and two additives such as trass and blast furnace slag has now spread throughout the world. These additives are generally interground with clinker to produce a composite cement of specified surface area. The grinding stage is of great importance as it accounts for a major portion of the total energy consumed in cement production and also as it affects the quality of composite cements by the particle size distribution of the individual additives produced ...
Simulation of solar thermal applicatıon in a cement plant
Salehian, Shadi; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2020)
This study presents solar thermal application in the most energy consuming units of a cement plant located in Gaziantep, Turkey. Cement industry is the most important energy intensive and the second largest contributor to anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions in the world which accounts for 5-6% of global CO2 emissions. Both material and energy flows are analyzed in the system for a conventional cement industry and a solar integrated one taking the most energy-efficient innovations into account. The whole ...
