KASTAMONU sent more than 70 tons of waste for recycling
As part of its environmental program, since the beginning of 2019 KASTAMONU has sent more than 70 tons of polythene and plastic waste, ferrous and non-ferrous metal scrap, paper and cardboard for recycling to specialized organizations.
In addition, over 44,000 m3 of sewage waters were purified at own treatment facilities and returned to the technological process, and 22,000 tons of wood waste were used as fuel at own power plants.
“The goal of our environmental policy is to ensure environmental safety by minimizing our negative impact on the environment”, noted Ali Kılıç, General Director of KASTAMONU in Russia. “We have installed new generation treatment facilities that ensure closed cycle water circulation at the plant. We make maximum use of recycling, sending hundreds of tons of cardboard, plastic and other secondary resources for recycling. To implement this strategy, the company has created all the necessary conditions, including separate waste collection. All these activities form a certain ecological culture, as well as promote the ideas of resource saving and respect for the environment.”
