Brief description of my Organisation
Bastas Cement is one of the two integrated cement plants (Bastas and Konya Cement Plants) of VICAT Group located in Ankara/Turkey. Bastas Cement has 2.6 million tons per year production capacity. Together with Konya Cement, Bastas Cement has supplemented its operations in Turkey with activities in Ready-mixed Concrete & Aggregates by operating 35 concrete batch plants, 7 aggregate quarries and 1 lime production plant.
As the cement industry is responsible for about 8% of total CO2 emissions in the world, Bastas Cement pays special attention on reducing CO2 footprint and protecting natural resources.
In this scope, Bastas Cement is one the leading cement plants in terms of using alternative fuels (up to 65% in mass) such as RDF (Refuse-derived fuel) and shredded/whole tyres. Also Bastas Cement produces blended cements with around 80% clinker. The replacement of clinker, of which production process is responsible for the major part of CO2 emissions, allows to reduce CO2 footprint.
