Since its establishment, Baycan has been working as a company that is sensitive to the environment. It has adopted the principles of green energy and clean environment in all its activities. Our biggest project in this context is the Solar Power Plant (SPP) investment, which we established last year with our own resources to reduce our carbon footprint. By using 40% of the installed capacity of our two businesses, we have implemented the 700 MWh capacity SPP Project as of the new year, and this is how we provide all the electricity needs of our current business (670 MWh usage).
We are among the top 10 companies that take part in solar energy investment of this scale among 804 companies located in Eskişehir Organized Industrial Zone. According to our system reports, we have produced the equivalent of 1623 tree planting, 30 tons of carbon dioxide emissions and 12 tons of coal usage since our project started. The installation and use of solar energy, which is a renewable energy source that does not pollute the environment and does not create harmful waste.
Our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certificate shows that we implement green production processes in our business. Baycan has been certified as Out of Scope by the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization. In the next five years we are planning a SPP investment that will meet the energy needs of the two factories (1,800,000 KWh), depending on the 100% commissioning of our second facility. Afterwards, it is considered that our excess capacity will be uploaded to the system and sold. At the same time, we have completed the necessary trainings for the ISO 50001 Energy Management System and are in the process of scheduling the certificate. Finally, we foresee that our company will continue its work without the need for external resources and by fully optimizing its carbon gas emissions.
