The relation of geogenic and antrophogenic factors with blood and hair lead and arsenic levels in women living in Çan and Bayramiç districts of Çanakkale province
Objective: Mining areas and associated industrial activities carry considerable risks for human health due to multi-pathway exposure of heavy metals such as arsenic and lead. The objective of this study was to compare ...
Increasing solubility of metal silicates by mixed polymeric antiscalants
The increase of silicate solubility is a big challenge for both hot and cold water because it reduces the deposition of metal silicates frequently observed in such systems and causes operational obstacles. The deposition ...

Removal of metals and metalloids from acidic mining lake (AML) using olive oil solid waste (OSW)
The acidic mining lakes have low pH values and high metal and metalloid concentrations. In this study, the ability of low-cost olive oil solid waste (OSW) to remove Al, As, Cd, Fe, B and Ti ions from aqueous solutions in ...
Tracing the relative distribution of arsenic species in groundwater and its association with soil arsenic levels in the Simav Graben area, Turkey
(Taylor & Francis Group, 2016)
A comprehensive hydrogeochemical assessment was conducted in the Simav Plain, Turkey where major health concerns were reported and elevated arsenic (As) levels were previously found. Boreholes drilled in the plain were ...
