How We Manage
To prevent air quality from being adversely affected, we monitor flue gas emissions from our production activities and take necessary actions to remain within legally prescribed limits. To reduce NOx emissions from glass furnaces, we use combustion systems that guarantee low-NOx levels and monitor emissions of our high-capacity production facilities online. We record compliance of all our facilities with local limits via periodic measurements and reporting. We are continuously working on emission reduction through primary measures under the coordination of our Research, Development & Quality Function. While creating sustainable value, we understand our responsibility towards our planet and take action accordingly.
- Providing low-NOx combustion equipment and furnace designs
- Reducing NOx emissions in furnaces with primary measures
- Optimizing Operating Conditions with Operational Guidelines
- Transferring NOx emissions in furnaces to the relevant Ministry system
Monitoring and Reporting
NOx emission levels in furnaces are monitored in all Şişecam production activities and are declared annually in our CDP Report and Sustainability Report.
Relevant key indicators: (GRI 305)
- NOx emissions (kg)
- SOx emissions (kg)
