Environmental Awareness

In Sarten, we always focus our efforts to minimalize the environmental impact of our operations, and in accordance with our vision of environmental sustainability, we are committed to fulfilling our legal obligations in this area at the highest standard possible. As a company fully aware of its environmental responsibilities, we support the recycling and re-use of materials such as metals, paper and plastics.

1) Emissions reduction and energy conservation

We periodically conduct emission measurements and with the contribution of modern incinerator systems installed at our facilities, we are able to maintain emission levels approximately 10 times below the legally binding emission ceiling. In addition, thanks to the induction furnaces which we developed at Sarten, we are able to save energy consumption up to 50% and we exend the use of these furnaces at our plants continuously.

2) Forestation activities

We regularly contribute to forestation activities held under the coordination of Silivri Municipality each year.

3) The “Metal Recycling” logo

We use EMPAC’s “Metal Recycling” logo, which aims to raise awareness about the fact that metal is an infinitely recyclable material, on every document we communicate.
