Chloridazon (5 -amino-4- chloro-2-phenyl-3(2H)-pyridazinon), also named as Pyrazon and classified as organochlorine pesticides, is widely used during sugar beets cultivation. Chloridazon (CLZ) being a pesticide with a high solubility in water is likely to end up in surface and groundwater bodies because of its high mobility in soil. Due to its toxic properties, it may cause serious problems on human health and ecological cycle. In the present study, the removal of CLZ herbicide from water was investigated b...
Removal of imidacloprid from wastewaters by ozonation and photo-ozonation
Sönmez, Büşra; Dilek, Filiz Bengü; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
The widespread occurrence of micropollutants in the receiving water bodies apparently shows that conventional wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) are not capable to remove these compounds. Imidacloprid (IMI), which is a specific pollutant and an insecticide, exceeded Environmental Quality Standards (EQS) value (0.14 µg/L, annual average) in several receiving water bodies of WWTPs in Yeşilırmak basin. With the aim of examining advanced treatment methods to meet EQS value and to achieve good surface water qual...
Removal of pesticides from secondary treated urban wastewater by reverse osmosis
ATEŞ, NURAY; UZAL, NİĞMET; Yetiş, Ülkü; Dilek, Filiz Bengü (2022-04-01)
The residues of pesticides that reach water resources from agricultural activities in several ways contaminate drinking water resources and threaten aquatic life. This study aimed to investigate the performance of three reverse osmosis (RO) membranes (BW30-LE, SW30-XLE, and GE-AD) in rejecting four different pesticides (tributyl phosphate, flutriafol, dicofol, and irgarol) from secondary treated urban wastewater and also to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the rejection of these pesticides. RO experiment...
Removal of some organic compounds and color from olive mill wastewater by electrocoagulation
Ugurlu, Mehmet; Kula, Ibrahim; Guerses, Ahmet (2006-01-01)
The effective performance of electrocoagulation (EC) technique in the treatment of olive mill wastewater (OMW) was investigated using Al and Fe electrodes. Current densities (CD), electrode materials (Al and Fe), electrolyte amounts, time and initial pH value were selected as parameters. In these parameters, the removal percentage of chemical oxygen demand (COD), color, phenol and lignin from OMW were experimentally investigated. OMW was used directly without pH adjustment and pretreatment. The experiment r...
Removal of phenolic compounds from rubber-textile wastewaters by physico-chemical methods
Ozbelge, TA; Ozbelge, OH; Baskaya, SZ (Elsevier BV, 2002-09-01)
Removal of phenolic compounds from rubber-textile wastewaters (RTWWs) by physico-chemical process was investigated by using four different types of coagulants (Al-2(SO4)(3), Fe-2(SO4)(3), FeSO4, FeCl3) with or without lime (Ca(OH)(2)) addition, in jar-test experiments. The RTWWs of the present tire-cord fabric plant may contain seven different types of dipping solutions (DSs), which provide an adhesive property to the fabric. The optimum results were obtained by using 50% FeCl3 solution and lime at various ...
