“Recycling may be described as converting recyclable waste materials, having been out of use after being processed, into raw materials via use of various recycling methods and reintroducing them into manufacturing processes. At RETEK Selülöz Geri Kazanım Endüstrisi Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş., it is our mission to “monitor closely evolving technologies and address our customers’ needs and expectations incessantly, in shortest possible times and best economic conditions”, under the leadership of our chairman, Mr. Polat Güven”, Mr. İlker Demirkaya, General Manager of RETEK Selülöz Geri Kazanım Endüstrisi Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş said.
Recycling Is Very Important
He added the following: “Used packaging materials and similar reusable wastes are used as sources of raw materials, and therefore primary raw materials and natural resources which will otherwise be consumed for a new material are preserved, leading to savings in costs. Our natural resources shrink each passing day due to increasing world population and consumption. This is why they should be used in a more efficient manner. Recycling helps with energy saving. The number of physical and chemical processes in recycling is lower than that of normal production processes, enabling us to achieve significant energy savings in producing materials through recycling. The amount of energy saved via recycling varies depending on the composition and type of the waste material. Experts state that an energy saving of 90% is achieved by recycling an aluminum box and 60% by recycling a paper. The amount of waste is also reduced. Thanks to recycling, less waste is sent to dump sites. And, as less dump sites and less energy will be needed, shipment and storage of such waste is made easier. Recycling contributes to economy. It prevents shrinkage of raw materials and consumption of natural resources, which will as a result contribute to the economy of the country”.
İlker Demirkaya, General Manager of RETEK Selülöz Geri Kazanım Endüstrisi Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş., pointed attention to the problems they faced in finding qualified people particularly in Nazilli, referring to the vocational courses of 10 days to 4 weeks that will be provided to applicants without certification. He said, those applicants will be able to start work after they receive certification.
Demirkaya also added that the Public Education Center and RETEK will sign a memorandum to launch vocational courses in the upcoming days.
