Colour and AOX removal from pulping effluents by algae
Dilek, Filiz Bengü; Tarlan, E (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1999-10-01)
A mixed culture of algae was used to treat pulping mill effluent in terms of removing both colour and adsorbably organic halides (AOX). The removal of AOX from pulping effluent increased with increasing initial colour Value of the effluent. However, for the total mill effluent (composed of both pulping and bleaching effluents), AOX removal was found to be independent of initial colour value, and was around 70%. Up to 80% removal of colour from pulping effluent was achieved within 30 days under continuous li...
Color formation in wheat starch based glucose syrups and use of commercially available and laboratory-prepared agricultural waste-based activated carbons for decolorization
Celebi, Ipek; Kincal, N. Suzan (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
Glucose syrups were produced from wheat starch using alpha-amylase at 97 degrees C for 45-90 min liquefaction times, followed by saccharification with amyloglucosidase at 60 degrees C for 18 h to study the color formation. This was followed by decolorization studies using 0.25 to 1.00 g activated carbon per g of syrup of the commercially available NORIT and several activated carbons prepared from apricot stones and hazelnut shells and husks on laboratory scale. Increase in liquefaction time resulted in high...
Color Removal with Natural Materials for Reuse of Wastewater in Textile Industry
Atımtay, Aysel (2010-09-15)
The water consumption in textile industry, especially in dyeing and washing processes is too high. Therefore, large amount of wastewater is produced and discharged to the receiving environment during textile production process. Discharge of colored effluents without decoloration originated from textile industries may cause serious problems in the receiving environments. Besides water resources are limited. The textile industry should look for recycling and reusing this water. The objective of this chapter i...
Color formation in wheat starch based glucose syrups and use of activated carbons for sugar decolorizaiton
Çelebi, İpek; Kıncal, Suzan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2006)
Glucose syrups were produced from wheat starch at 45-90 min liquefaction times followed by 18 h saccharification to study the effect of liquefaction time on color formation and the use of several amounts (0.25%-1%) and types (NORIT, commercial; and hazelnut husk, apricot stone, hazelnut shell based; prepared in Chemical Engineering Department) of activated carbons for color removal. The fractional conversion values and color levels of glucose syrups increased with increasing liquefaction time. However, to r...
