Özet

Animal breeding is one of the agricultural activities in Turkey. The animal manure can be used as an organic material in producing biogas. The energy needs of agricultural enterprises can be met by establishing biogas production facilities in these enterprises. In this study, it was aimed to determine the potential areas in the East Mediterranean region of Turkey which is suitable for biogas plants. The East Mediterranean covers Adana, Hatay, Kahramanmarasand Osmaniye provinces. In this context, the borders of the provinces (Adana, Hatay, Kahramanmarasand Osmaniye) subjected to the study and the topographic properties of the region were drawn using ARCMAP 10.3 software. In this study, it was aimed to determine the obtainable biogas energy fields and the current situation in the provinces in the East Mediterranean region. Furthermore, the number of cattle in the East Mediterranean region for the years 2013-2017 was benefited from in this framework. The potential biogas areas in each province were determined and these areas are tried to be interpreted. The areas that are suitable, non-suitable or partially suitable for biogas energy production were determined. The finding that a total of 7634583.885 tons of annual wet manure can be obtained in the study area was obtained. It was determined that a total of 3193690103 MJ biogas energy amount can be obtained per year from this wet manure.
