Notable representatives of the cement sector, the locomotive of Turkey’s economy, from Turkey and the world, came together in Antalya.

When it comes to the efficient use of energy resources, Tüzün said, “Through the mission that we have undertaken, we are enhancing the use of renewable energy by using the state-of-the-art technologies. Presently, our Plants are producing the electricity that would correspond to the daily electricity consumption of 400,000 households thanks to the WHR (Waste Heat Recovery) technology in their cement plants without receiving incentives. It is because as the sector, we are in a huge lunge regarding the utilization of wastes as fuel, raw material, and admixtures. We believe that a world order where no waste is present or wastes are minimized or a waste out of a production process can be used as raw material or admixture in another production process, and we are and we will continue to be working for it. Such endeavors of our sector are providing positive contribution to our national commitments in view of the fight against the climate change.”
