Environmental problems have become more severe due to increased industrialization and urbanization as well as the increase in production and consumer purchasing power. Environmental problems have started to threaten human health and life in some regions.
On the other hand, remedies that can slow down and prevent environmental deterioration can only be implemented through technology.
The most important step for preventing environmental deterioration will be to study it as a problem that can be solved economically.
The environment technologies sector aims to create a sustainable world without making any concessions in production, consumption and social welfare. It has to state this message clearly to the whole world.
IFAT EURASIA 2015 Will be the PULSE of the Environment Technologies Sector in the Eurasia Region
TURKEY, THE GATE OF THE WESTERN WORLD OPENING TO THE EAST
Turkey is the geographical, historical and cultural center of the region.
Turkey has above average figures of waste production in both urban waste and industrial waste in the region due to its urbanization rate, population of 80 million and rate of industrialization.
Regulations, implementations and investments in environment technologies, which especially increased after the opening of the environment chapter and were initiated within the scope of European Union discussions after December 2009, helped to increase the standing of Turkey in world rankings.
The conditions for investment are encouraging for environment technologies and the renewable energy sector in Turkey. In addition to the existing investment opportunities in the areas of waste engement, water & wastewater and environmental consultancy, growth is expected also in the areas of controlling air and marine pollution.
The increase in environmental expenditures from 2010 until 2012 was 44 %
To increase the level of waste treatment in Turkey, there are plans to increase solid waste storage areas and solid waste processing equipment sufficiently and to use more advanced technology. Construction of new water treatment plants and renewal of existing ones is on the agenda for areas that include almost half the population. In addition, many companies that produce waste are looking for waste treatment solutions.
Turkish companies in the sector of environmental technologies are seeking technology transfer, company mergers and joint ventures for financing, experience and expertise.
Turkey is targeting exports of 500 billion USD in its development projections for 2023. It will have a much greater need for the use of environment technologies due to the renewal of existing industrial facilities, capacity increases and the opening of new facilities.
Just in 2012, 64.116 people were employed in the management of public institutions, the private sector and organized industrial zones for environmental activities.
