This facility, which we opened, emerged as a result of a series of R&D studies related to the waste water released in our manufacturing activities. Congratulations to everyone involved.” said. Referring to other environmental projects they have realized recently, Akşit said, “We established waste sorting units in Musaözü Nature Park, one of the important environmental riches of our Eskişehir, in support of the "Zero Waste" project on the occasion of June 5 World Environment Day, so that wastes can be separated at their source. As TEI Family, we took an active role from the preparation of the units to be used to the training of the personnel to be used. In addition, we have recently commissioned a meeting room called “EcoZone”. We created all the office materials we use in this meeting room from waste materials from our factory. Our meeting table, which we created from 270 kilograms of organic waste, is one of the first applications produced with a transformation activity in this context.” He said, and reminded that they are the first company in Eskişehir to receive the Basic Level Zero Waste Certificate in their field of activity.
