Sabancı Cement Group’s Target: “No Electricity Bill” Factories by 2021

Sabancı Holding’s Cement Group Chairman Hakan Gürdal says that their most ambitious target is to operate Turkey’s first  “no electricty bill” cement factories. Gürdal says that they are working on some projects which will make Çimsa and Akçansa (Sabancı Holding’s cement companies)  energy self-produceries by 2021. Afyon factory will invest in solar plant and  Çanakkale factory will be installing  wind turbines.  Çimsa and Akçansa are already using waste heat and they burn solid wastes in furnaces. Both companies use municipality wastes for burning.

Gürdal says that Akçansa Çanakkale cement factory will be producing algea (water moss) from the carbondioxide it gives off to the air, by June 2015.  He also declared that “sustainable production“and “sustainability” are very high on the company agenda.
