OYAK Cement, the first cement company in Turkey to make a 'Net-Zero' commitment, has added a new one to its environmentally friendly products. Having recently launched Alfacem, the first 'CEM VI' class product to receive a G conformity certificate in the Turkish cement industry, and 'KarBeyaz' with low carbon and high whiteness, OYAK Cement has now produced 'Novocem'.
‘Novocem', the new product of OYAK Cement, the capacity and market leader of the Turkish cement industry, provides high resistance to environmental impacts where it is used. A product with low carbon emissions with the amount of additives in its content of 36 to 50 percent, Novocem stands out with its wide area of use.
The calcined clay produced by OYAK Cement, which owns the world's first cement factories with calcined clay integration, is a binder with a carbon footprint that can reach 90 percent compared to Portland clinker.
OYAK Cement, a member of the OYAK Group Companies, exports its products to 85 countries, including the USA, Russia, Israel, Romania and Morocco. OYAK Cement sets an example for the sector with its projects that reduce carbon emissions in its production processes and final products, and has increased the use of alternative fuels to 25 percent in clinker production processes, which is the main source of carbon emissions. Reducing the effects of indirect carbon emissions with solar energy projects while producing energy from waste heat, OYAK Cement leads the world cement industry with its calcined clay technology offering low carbon footprint.
OYAK Cement has concentrated on the use of alternative fuels and raw materials in line with the environmental legislation and administrative regulations within the scope of its sustainability efforts, and also eliminates wastes harmful to nature by reducing natural resource consumption with alternative raw material sources and industrial symbiosis.
