Our Environmental Activities

 As BATICIM, our aim in cement factory is to produce clinker and cement in accordance with national and international standards and to provide these products with a service approach that is suitable for customer wishes and expectations. AS part of the TS-EN-ISO 14001 certificate received in 2005, we are our general principle of respecting nature and preventing environmental pollution. We are aware that protecting and improving the environment we live in is an integral part of our work and our lives. For this reason, we take maximum care to prevent environmental pollution and to use natural resources in a conscious way. We reduce the resulting wastes at the source, and in any case, we regain these wastes to the economy.

Activities;

-Continuous measurement and recording of gas and dust analyzers

-Separation of waste at source and temporary storage plant and equipment

-Energy generation by utilizing waste heat thrown into the atmosphere

-Silencers and galleries to minimize environmental noise

-Vacuum cleaners and plots with the aim of preventing outdoor dust

-Reduction of natural resource consumption using alternative fuels and alternative raw materials.

Our Environmental Activities

Environmental investment projects

In order to provide a more livable world in the future, it is among our priorities to protect the environment while conducting our work and to prevent environmental pollution.-330 tons of wet mud with a capacity of over-the-year thermal drying Plant project; Izmir's don't make sludge drying and preventing the mud to go into the demonic areas, the sludge as an alternative fuel in rotary furnaces, fuel saving and greenhouse gas reduction contribution

-Electrical filters of rotary furnaces in the factory by converting bag filters, energy fluctuation, cutting and the initial commissioning and discontinuation of the facilities, preventing the pre-treatment of dust emissions not possible

-Electrical energy production from waste heat

Reforestation

We are aware that protecting and improving the environment we live in is an integral part of our work and our lives. In addition to environmental rehabilitation of the areas where we operate as a shipwreck, we continuously maintain our environmental activities with the principle of leaving a greener world for future generations.

 Since 2007, in Belkahve, we have brought about 44.5 hectares (445 thousand m2) of 46 thousand saplings to nature in the field of rehabilitation.

We support the establishment of ecological balance in the region with the efforts to re-create the limestone mines that we use in cement production immediately after the end of the activity. By harmonising the current topography of the field with the natural topography, we ensure that the land is re-opened for agricultural and forestry use.

Waste Management

With the waste management system implemented since July 2005, ÇİM has taken control of all its hazardous and solid wastes in accordance with the law. The Ministry of Environment and Forestry, the General Directorate of Environmental Management with the business license and all the hazardous and solid wastes covered by our waste menu as an alternative fuel for energy production is eliminated by burning.

With its "Environment permit and license", Batıçim is using waste as an alternative fuel and preventing environmental pollution from hazardous wastes to the storage areas and uncontrolled to the receiving environment. On the other hand, they benefit from the thermal forces of these wastes and gain certain rates from coal, which is the primary fuel of cement production. In this way, it constitutes value added to the economic use of natural resources. 

Waste Management

Carbon Footprint

We have commissioned our project "Energy generation from waste heat" which reduces carbon emissions. In order to produce some of the electricity we consume by using the heat from the production process, we have commissioned our projects "waste heat to electrical energy production plant" in our Batıçim cement factories. We get all the vapor required for warming and production from the hot gas in our chimneys. In this way, we do not use additional fossil fuels to provide the energy required for warming and production, and we provide 4,500 tons of carbon emissions reduction equivalent to 13,000 tree planting annually.

To reduce the impact of greenhouse gas on live and lifeless beings with "energy generation from waste heat" which is one of the best technologies that will enable energy production to reduce carbon emissions, instead of our responsibility against global warming and contribute to national energy production.
