Biological treatment of paper pulping effluents by using a fungal reactor
Taseli, BK; Gökçay, Celal Ferdi (1999-01-01)
Pulp and paper plants are amongst the most polluter industries in this country and elsewhere. Most of the organic halides (AOX) and colour from pulp bleaching units are discharged to the receiving basins without being fully treated. A fungus, which is able to affect over 50% AOX and colour removals from soft-wood bleachery effluents within two days contact time, have been isolated in this laboratory. Optimum condition for dechlorination by this fungus in batch tests was determined as pH 5.5 and 25 degrees C...
Biological treatment and nanofiltration of denim textile wastewater for reuse
ŞAHİNKAYA, Erkan; UZAL, Nigmet; Yetiş, Ülkü; Dilek, Filiz Bengü (2008-05-30)
This study aims at coupling of activated sludge treatment with nanofiltration to improve denim textile wastewater quality to reuse criteria. In the activated sludge reactor, the COD removal efficiency was quite high as it was 91 +/- 2% and 84 +/- 4% on the basis of total and soluble feed COD, respectively. The color removal efficiency was 75 +/- 10%, and around 50-70% of removed color was adsorbed on biomass or precipitated within the reactor. The high conductivity of the wastewater, as high as 8 mS/cm, did...
Biological Treatment of Micropollutants
Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande (IWA Publishing, 2010-01-01)
Municipal wastewater is the main source of micropollutants which are present in the household products (detergents, cosmetics and paints) and natural excretion of humans (drugs and metabolites, synthetic hormones) (Bruchet et al., 2002; Bicchi et al., 2009). After their use, pharmaceuticals are excreted intact and/or as metabolites with feces and urine; thus are introduced directly into wastewater (Lo¨ffler et al., 2005). New sanitation concepts where wastewater streams are separated and treated according t...
Biological hydrogen production from olive mill wastewater and its applications to bioremediation
Eroğlu, Ela; Eroğlu, İnci; Department of Chemical Engineering (2006)
Hydrogen production by photosynthetic bacteria occurs under illumination in the presence of anaerobic atmosphere from the breakdown of organic substrates, which is known as photofermentation. In this study, single-stage and two-stage process development were investigated for photofermentative hydrogen production from olive mill wastewater by Rhodobacter sphaeroides O.U.001 within indoor and outdoor photobioreactors. It was proven that diluted olive mill wastewater (OMW) could be utilized for photobiological...
