Treatment of textile wastewaters by electrocoagulation using iron and of aluminum electrode materials has been investigated in this paper. The effects of relevant wastewater characteristics such as conductivity and pH, and important process variables such as current density and operating time on the chemical oxygen demand (COD) and turbidity removal(More)
This study aims at carrying out lipase-catalyzed synthesis of fatty acid methyl esters (biodiesel) from various vegetable oils using lipase immobilized onto a novel microporous polymeric matrix (MPPM) as a low-cost biocatalyst. The research is focused on three aspects of the process: (a) MPPM synthesis (monolithic, bead, and powder forms), (b) microporous(More)
The detrimental effects of urban air pollution (UAP) have been represented as growing problems in recent years (Per Nafstad et al, 2004; World Health Organization). The harm represented by air pollution has been largely demonstrated from the impacts on human health and well being, such as asthma, eye irritation and even cancer (Nyberg F et al., 2000; J.(More)
The recovery of photocatalyst particles constitutes a serious drawback of slurry reactors. Therefore, depositing the catalyst mass on a suitable support without loss of photocatalytic activity is of practical importance. In this study, a chemical deposition method was applied to coat the inner surface of quartz tubes of various diameters with thin ZnO film.(More)
In this study, the synthesis of Ce(0.8)Sm(0.2)O(1.9) (SDC) solid electrolyte by the ultrasound assisted co-precipitation method was accomplished to explore the effects of ultrasound power, ultrasound pulse ratio and probe type upon the ionic conductivity of SDC as well as the lattice parameter, the microstructure and the density. Fine powders of uniform(More)
Thiourea leaching of precious metals such as gold and silver from ores has several advantages when compared with conventional cyanidation process. In recent years, the use of ultrasound in leaching processes is becoming increasingly popular in hydrometallurgy. This paper deals with combining these two techniques for silver leaching from solid waste of a(More)
Electrocoagulation (EC) due to some advantages over chemical coagulation is becoming a popular process to be used for wastewater treatment. The aim of this paper is to investigate the effect of initial addition of a chemical coagulant such as polyaluminum chloride (PAC) or alum on the COD removal efficiency of EC treatment of textile wastewaters. The two(More)
Various techniques have been applied to air pollution modelling. In this study, a model was developed by applying a continuity equation to the air control volume over Erzurum city centre. Model parameters were calculated by regression analysis, using SO2 and particle concentrations taken in 1989-1990 and 1990-1991 winter seasons. Multiple correlation(More)
Air pollution is a growing problem arising from domestic heating, high density of vehicle traffic, electricity production, and expanding commercial and industrial activities, all increasing in parallel with urban population. Monitoring and forecasting of air quality parameters in the urban area are important due to health impact. Artificial intelligent(More)
The photocatalytic degradation of aqueous solution of a commercial azo-reactive textile dye, Remazol Red F3B, has been investigated in a batch slurry reactor, in the presence of ZnO catalyst using two different UV light sources emitting at 254 nm and 365 nm. The effects of various process variables on degradation performance of the process have been(More)
