In the first 4 project using renewable energy sources, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality rescued the atmosphere from ı 253 bin tree ede 94 thousand tons of carbon dioxide. In addition, the 165 bus, which was prevented from getting off the road thanks to the rail system network reaching 1000 km, prevented the release of 62 thousand tons of carbon dioxide.
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality striking examples of environmental investments in Turkey, gives great importance to the use of renewable energy to create healthy and climate-friendly city. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, which is a party to the Büyük Mayors Convention of the European Union, for the future generations and who is responsible for reducing the carbon dioxide emissions in the projects and services that are in the area of responsibility until 2020 by 20, is taking firm steps to this goal.
Turkey's largest environmental project in Cigli Sludge Digestion and Drying Plant, still meander Treatment of drying with solar energy mud, electric buses into service and Ekrem Akurgal Life Park's electricity solar panels established to meet the need, at the İzmir Metropolitan Municipality's environmental awareness concrete examples. These environmental investments have made significant contributions both to the economy and to the nature in a short time. With the use of renewable energy sources, Izmir, 253 bin tree could clear 94 thousand tons of carbon dioxide was saved.
Natural gas instead of biogas
2014 71 million pounds of investment in the Çiğli Waste Water Treatment Plant Mud Digestion and Drying units, 3,5 million cubic meters of biogas was produced per year. This biogas was used instead of natural gas in the sludge drying process. The value of the produced biogas was around 34,5 million pounds. Thus, the 23 thousand tons reduction in the carbon footprint was achieved as equivalent to the introduction of nearly one thousand trees.
IZSU evaluated the dried sludge produced in the Sludge Digestion and Drying Plant as X additional fuel UM in the cement plants and reached the capacity to produce 800 tons of dried sludge by reducing the total amount of sludge reached to 6 by about 120.
Savings in the sun
2014 IZSU, which was put into service in August in Menderes Watershed Waste Water Treatment Plant, was dried by solar energy. saving money. At the same time, 1 thousand 360 tons of carbon dioxide was released into the atmosphere through the use of renewable energy. In the Menderes Watershed Waste Water Treatment Plant, 3 thousand tons of treatment sludge is dried by solar energy and the use of fossil fuels such as natural gas and coal is prevented. The amount of carbon dioxide that is released into the atmosphere can only be cleaned by the 170 bin 2 tree ere
Both saving and environmentally friendly
2 1 747 277 743 8 18 643 XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX According to another account, the XNUMX bin XNUMX tree would be needed to clear the air pollution generated by the fuel-oil buses during the last XNUMX month.
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality also established a solar power plant on the roofs of ESHOT's Buca workshops to produce electric buses.
Electricity need of Park of Life was met
The electricity required for the illumination of Bayraklı Ekrem Akurgal Life Park and the solar energy system, which was established to cover the energy demand of the Gas Plant, and the energy needs of the Gas Plant, showed that this environmental investment was received in a short time. İzmir Metropolitan Municipality established an 40 solar panel in the park with a total area of one thousand 217, 380 is on the roof of sports hall and 336 is in the parking area. In August the system came into operation and so far 716 thousand kilowatt hours of electricity was provided. 45 tons of carbon emissions were prevented.
End of exhaust smoke to rail system
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality's 165 kilometers and 750-800 thousand passengers a day with the potential of the rail system thanks to the clean air remains clean. The existing investments were to take place, and the 1000 bus would have to be included in the traffic to carry the same amount of passengers.
According to the calculations made by the General Directorate of ESHOT on electric buses, al the carbon emission of buses using fossil fuels ına according to the rates, carrying only passengers by rail system in Izmir annually 62 thousand tons of carbon dioxide emission was prevented.
