Duran Doğan

Duran Doğan Basım ve Ambalaj is a manufacturer of premium packaging. EBRD provided a loan to Duran Doğan to implement an innovative system to produce a fully recyclable metallized cardboard in the packaging Industry (Gloss & Green). This metallic transfer technology allows recovering the plastic film originally laminated with the cardboard.

In terms of sustainability, this technology diverts from landfill or incinerator a remarkable amount of plastic and carboard material (350 tons) that will be recovered at the Company site and transformed into a plastic material suitable for re-use as r-PET. This reduction of resources will also generate 763 tons of CO2 reduction per annum.
