Sustainable remediation of nitrate contamination in the agricultural fields



Sustainable remediation of aquatic sediments contaminated with polybrominated diphenyl ethers and hexabromocyclododecane
Demirtepe, Hale; İmamoğlu, İpek; Department of Environmental Engineering (2017)
The most widely used brominated flame retardants (BFRs), namely, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), and hexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD) are persistent organic pollutants that pose great risk to human health and the environment. This study aims to investigate degradation of PBDEs and HBCDD contaminated aquatic sediments via biotic and abiotic remediation strategies. In order to obtain an indication of use of these BFRs in Turkey, urban and industrial wastewater treatment plant sludges were sampled, yield...
Sustainable Use of Natural Zeolites in the Treatment of Wastes
İmamoğlu, İpek (2012-01-01)
Information presented here focuses on the sustainable commercial use of natural zeolites. Topics specifically covered include; (i) use of this natural mineral for remediation of contaminated sites and clean-up of spills, (ii) treatment and handling of animal/agricultural wastes considering recent climate change policies, (iii) management of wastewater treatment plant sludge to enable valuable product formation and prevention of formation of hazardous wastes. Reuse of spent zeolites and future trends in term...
Sustainable hydrogen production process development using reducible oxides
Çalışan, Atalay; Üner, Deniz; Department of Chemical Engineering (2020)
The energy demand is driven by increasing world population and living standards. Sustaining this demand with available and renewable energy sources is a major challenge. The options such as solar and wind power, are unreliable for a steady energy production due to their intermittent nature. Therefore, the storage of renewable energy, such as hydrogen, gains importance. In the scope of this thesis, a sustainability barrier in front of solar integrated hydrogen production processes was addressed in terms of m...
