With the project featuring a budget of Euro 110 thousand, which is run in tandem with GIZ-Grozd Plasttehnika – the Plasttechnics Cluster Slovenia, the industrialists of both countries exchanged opinions on eco-friendly and energy efficient manufacturing processes. In addition, the Turkish companies involved in the project had the chance to promote themselves in European member states.

The project, developed by PAGDER with a view to enhance the share of highly innovative and eco-friendly products in total manufacturing rate across the industry, and raise awareness and provide information flow for this purpose, included business trips and field researches as well. Within the scope of the project, the examples of innovative, eco-sensitive and energy efficient product and manufacturing processes across the industry were identified and communicated.

For the conclusion part of the project, the methods out of innovations that contributed the most to the mitigation of carbon footprint were lined up as follows; reduction of energy consumption, use of less materials through the use of advanced engineering and innovative raw materials, zero-waste manufacturing plants, biopolymers, and recycling.
