Air Quality Protection Regulation (AQPR) is in force in Turkey since 1986. But, no standards, guidelines and regulations exist for control of odor problems in this legislation of Turkey. Moreover, there are odor complaints in the residential and industrial areas as well as at the tourist sites of Turkey. It was recorded by the national and local environmental authorities that most of the complaints from environmental pollution is based on 'malodorous' water bodies, wastewater discharges, solid wastes or emissions. But specific legislative procedure for their handling, management and treatment does not exist. Therefore. this problem should be adequately addressed.

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 high...
Air and groundwater pollution in an agricultural region of the Turkish Mediterranean coast
Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal; Erduran, M. Soner (2008-09-01)
Air pollution and groundwater pollution in conjunction with agricultural activity were investigated in Antayla province on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. The air pollution was investigated in terms of gas-phase nitric acid (HNO3), sulfur dioxide (SO2), ammonia (NH3), and particulate matter for a 6-month period in the atmosphere using a "filter pack" system, which was developed and optimized in our laboratory. Ozone was measured by using an automated analyzer. Among all of the gas-phase pollutants, HNO3 ha...

A project titled "Hazardous Waste Management in Compliance with European Union Environmental Regulations in Turkey" was carried out with the support of The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey on behalf of the Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning in Turkey. In this project, several industries were examined for improving an internet based system called "Hazardous Waste Declaration System" (HWDS) and meeting the requirements of Turkey. Hazardous waste lists and hazardous waste generat...
Pestrans: a software developed for assessing the fate and transport of pesticides in soil environment
Alshahethi, Aiman Mohammed Qaid; Ünlü, Kahraman; Department of Environmental Engineering (2021-2-15)
Excessive and uncontrolled use of plant protection products in Turkey caused major concerns as many pesticides proved to possess hazardous impact on soil and groundwater systems. The main objective of this thesis is to develop a computer screening model that has capabilities to simulate fate and transport of pesticides in soil. The developed computer model integrated with a graphical user interface, named as PETRANS GUI, enables users to screen pesticides based on mobility, volatility, persistence, and dete...

Chemical explosion and fire risk assessment is conducted for a textile mill in Turkey. The study is within the framework of the first implementation of the EC Directive on Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC Directive) (96/61/EC) before legal transposition of the directive. Carrying out risk assessments in industrial facilities is necessary to comply with IPPC. Industrial accidents should also be investigated within the framework of the Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents Directive (...
