Utilization of microorganisms in oil recovery and a laboratory application for Raman crude oil Mikroorganizmalarin petrol uretiminde kullanilislari ve Raman petrolu icin bir laboratuvar uygulamasi

The utilization of microorganisms to overcome various problems encountered in petroleum production is attracting increasing attention in recent years. In this study, one of the methods that uses microorganisms for the enhancement of petroleum recovery, namely, Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery and its application to Raman oil is discussed. As a result of comparison with the reference experiment, it is observed that the presence of microorganisms caused a 12% increase in oil recovery. This increase is attributed to the changes in viscosity and pH of the medium. (A)

Application of density functional theory to propylene to propylene oxide catalytic reaction
Onay, Deniz; Önal, Işık; Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Department of Chemical Engineering (2015)
Current propylene oxide production highly relies on costly and environmentally disadvantageous processes. Direct propylene epoxidation on heterogeneous surface is desired to replace these processes. With this ultimate goal in mind, propylene epoxidation has been investigated on Cu2O(001) and RuO2(110) surfaces. Different elementary steps of the reaction mechanism that result in propylene oxide formation are analyzed on these catalytic models by using Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations via Vienna A...
Dehydration of alcohol solutions obtained from a solvent recovery process by pervaporation
Büküşoğlu, Emre; Yılmaz, Levent; Department of Chemical Engineering (2010)
Solvent recovery is gaining importance in the chemical production processes to reduce the costs and because of environmental concerns. Therefore separation schemes for recovery and recycle of solvents used in printing and packaging industry were developed. However, a low value by-product, mainly ethyl alcohol and isopropanol, is obtained during the solvent recovery process. If the water concentration of this mixture is decreased below 0.1% by weight, the value of it increases significantly. To dehydrate thi...
Utilization of soda and beer wastes in cementitious systems
Aleessa Alam, Burhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Department of Cement Engineering (2009)
To maintain the sustainability of cement and concrete production, there is a trend to use wastes in their production. Soda waste, generated by soda ash production process, and beer waste, generated by beer filtration process, are two locally produced wastes in Turkey and many other countries. The nature of these wastes, mostly their fineness, makes them possible to be used in concrete production, especially as a viscosity modifying agent in the self consolidating type of concrete. In this study, the additio...
Photobiological hydrogen production by Rhodobacter sphaeroides O.U.001 by utilization of waste water from milk industry
Turkarslan, S; Yigit, DO; Aslan, K; Eroğlu, İnci; Gündüz, Ufuk (1997-06-26)
Hydrogen production with photosynthetic microorganisms contributes to the protection of the environment, not only in producing a clean fuel but also in waste treatment processes. In this study, Rhodobacter sphaeroides, a photosynthetic bacteria, is used in photobiological hydrogen production by using waste water from the milk industry.
Synthesis and investigation of optical and electrochemical properties of organoboron based donor-acceptor type conjugated polymers
Ayyıldız, Berrin; Çırpan, Ali; Dengiz, Çağatay; Department of Chemistry (2021-7)
In recent years, the element boron has an important place in the studies of alternative energy sources to solve problems arising in the field of energy production. In addition to its superior properties and wide use in many industry areas, it is known that boron is integrated into conjugated organic structures. One of the current focus points of studies on alternative energy sources is polymers with semiconductor conjugated structures and small organic molecules. In this study, boron units were embedded in ...
