Effects of Ultrasound Pretreatment on Biogas Generation from Anaerobic Digestion and Fuel Properties of Municipal Sludge



Effects of ultrasound pretreatment and anaerobic digestion on the energy potential of sludge
Çelebi, Emrehan Berkay; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Department of Environmental Engineering (2015)
The by-product of wastewater treatment, sludge, is generated in tons everyday all around the world. As environmental regulations in Turkey are becoming stricter during the European Union adaptation period, the previously wide-spread disposal method of landfilling the sludge will not be applicable. Instead, dried sludge is expected to be used in revenue generating methods like land application or combustion. Combustion can be thought of as more beneficial as it uses sludge as an energy source. However, it is...
Effects of pretreatment methods on solubilization of beet-pulp and bio-hydrogen production yield
Ozkan, Leyla; Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande; DEMİRER, GÖKSEL NİYAZİ (2011-01-01)
Sugar processing wastewater and beet-pulp are two major waste streams of sugar-beet processing plants. Contrary to wastewater, beet-pulp is generally used as animal feed in cattle-raising industry. However, it can serve as a substrate for bio-hydrogen production which corresponds to a higher valorization of beet-pulp. Moreover, pretreatment of lignocellulosic materials like beet-pulp is needed in order to improve overall energy efficiency and enable economic feasibility of bio-hydrogen production. Therefore...
Effects of psyllium and cellulose fibres on thermal, structural, and in vitro digestion behaviour of wheat starch
Atac, Leyla Elif; Şensoy, İlkay (2021-10-01)
The study investigated the effects of adding different types of fibre (psyllium and cellulose) on in vitro digestion behaviour of wheat starch with its thermal and structural properties. Psyllium and cellulose fibres interfered with the wheat starch differently. Psyllium fibre hindered starch gelatinisation, restricted the loss of starch crystallinity, and decreased the accessibility of enzymes to starch. In contrast, cellulose fibre had no significant effect on gelatinisation and loss of crystallinity but ...
Effects of Microwave-Assisted Baking on Quality of Gluten-free Cakes and Breads
Yıldız, Eda; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2019-07-01)
Gluten-free doughs lack the glutenins and gliadins responsible for dough expansion and strength, inhibiting network formation and reducing the viscoelastic structure of doughs. Microwave baking methods have some advantages over conventional baking methods, including faster heating, time and energy conservation, and greater product volume. They also have some disadvantages, however, including nonuniform heating, insufficient starch gelatinization, gummy texture, lack of color formation, and high moisture los...
