Evaluation of Power Production from Different Scenarios Regarding Combustion of Sewage Sludge: A Waste and an Alternative Energy Source



Evaluation of dewatered and partially dried sewage sludge combustion based on energy balance and carbon footprint
Calbay, Emin; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Department of Environmental Engineering (2018)
Aim of this thesis is to evaluate dewatered (wet) and partially dried sludge combustion, based on energy balance, carbon footprint and cost estimations. Thermal processes have advantage of converting sludge into energy. Transition from environmentally risky disposal methods to environmentally friendly innovative thermal processes is crucial. Until innovative technologies are proven to be robust and efficient, mono-incineration is evaluated as the transition technology in sludge management. Sufficient data a...
Evaluation of seismic response modification factors for steel frames by non-linear analysis
Bakır, Serhan; Yılmaz, Çetin; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
In this study steel framing systems are investigated with regards to their lateral load carrying capacity and in this context seismic response modification factors of individual systems are analyzed. Numerous load resisting layouts, such as different bracing systems and un-braced moment resisting frames with various bay and story configurations are designed and evaluated in a parametric fashion. Three types of beam to column connection conditions are incorporated in evaluation process. Frames, designed acco...
Evaluation of solar sludge drying alternatives by costs and area requirements
Kurt, Mayis; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2015-10-01)
Thermal drying is a common method to reach above 90% dry solids content (DS) in sludge. However, thermal drying requires high amount of energy and can be expensive. A greenhouse solar dryer (GSD) can be a cost-effective substitute if the drying performance, which is typically 70% DS, can be increased by additional heat. In this study feasibility of GSD supported with solar panels is evaluated as an alternative to thermal dryers to reach 90% DS. Evaluations are based on capital and O&M costs as well as area ...
Evaluation of air quality over the Black Sea Major ionic composition of rainwater
Omer, Alagha; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2003-02-01)
This article attempts to put the light on the air quality of the Black Sea region of Turkey. In addition to that, it endeavors to locate the possible sources of the different pollutants at local, regional and long range transported scales. About 196 rainwater samples were collected over the Black Sea region of Amasra between 1995 and 1999, and analyzed for major ions and trace elements using spectrophotometric techniques. Andersen wet only rain samples were used to collect rain events, where the rain sample...
Evaluation of microplastics removal efficiency at a wastewater treatment plant discharging to the Sea of Marmara
Vardar, Suat; Onay, Turgut T.; Demirel, Burak; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan (2021-11-15)
Levels, composition and fate of microplastics (MPs) were investigated along different compartments of a secondary wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) with nutrient removal on the northern Sea of Marmara coast (Istanbul, Turkey). When all samples were combined, fibers were found to be the most dominant particles, followed by hard fragments. 500–1000 μm and 1000–2000 μm were the most common size ranges for wastewater and sludge, respectively. Rate of removal differed for sizes and shapes of the particles combin...
