Commercial processing of sour cherries generates a large quantity of pomace as an industrial waste, which can suitably be converted into value-added fiber-rich products by employing appropriate extraction techniques. In this work, an array of techniques [microwave (MW), high-pressure (HP), enzymatic and thermal treatments] was employed to improve the yield of soluble dietary fiber (SDF) in sour cherry pomace (SCP) by breaking down the insoluble dietary fiber into a soluble form, and characterizes by total p...
Green Biological Fabrication and Characterization of Highly Monodisperse Palladium Nanoparticles Using Pistacia Atlantica Fruit Broth

The development of green and safe processes for the synthesis of nanomaterials is one of the main aspects of nanotechnology. In this study, a biological, inexpensive and rapid process for the fabrication of palladium nanoparticles using the aqueous broth of Pistacia Atlantica fruit as a novel biomass product is reported without using extra surfactant, capping agent, and template. The synthesized palladium nanoparticles were confirmed and characterized by various spectroscopic techniques including UV-Visible...
Green synthesis of iron nanoparticles and their application as a Fenton-like catalyst for the degradation of aqueous cationic and anionic dyes

Iron nanoparticles were produced using extracts of green tea leaves (GT-Fe NPs). The materials were characterized using TEM. SEM/EDX, XPS, XRD, and FTIR techniques and were shown to contain mainly iron oxide and iron oxohydroxide. The obtained nanoparticles were then utilized as a Fenton-like catalyst for decolorization of aqueous solutions containing methylene blue (MB) and methyl orange (MO) dyes. The related experiments investigated the removal kinetics and the effect of concentration for both MB and MO....

Since discovery of the first antibiotic drug, penicillin, in 1928, a variety of antibiotic and antimicrobial agents have been developed and used for both human therapy and industrial applications. However, excess and uncontrolled use of antibiotic agents has caused a significant growth in the number of drug resistant pathogens. Novel therapeutic approaches replacing the inefficient antibiotics are in high demand to overcome increasing microbial multidrug resistance. In the recent years, ongoing research has...

Green logistics encompasses the efforts to observe and reduce the environmental impacts of logistics activities. This thesis studies different problems in two subdivisions of green logistics that are green transportation and green warehousing. To address green transportation, we introduce different problems in the context of the planar facility location problem. We first consider an extension of the classical Weber problem, named as the green Weber problem (GWP). The GWP decides on the location of a single ...
