Constructed by Hitachi Zosen Inova Company – Makyol Construction Joint Venture, Kemerburgaz Waste-to-Energy Facility is in Istanbul.


The first stage of the Kemerburgaz Waste Incineration Plant has been launched in late 2020, and all stages will be completed by 2021’s second quarter. IMM plans to open one more waste incineration plant within the scope of climate change and zero-waste strategy until 2024. Istanbul will gain a 15% incineration rate with the first incineration plant; this rate will reach 30% with the launch of the second plant. The first incineration plant has been launched with 3000 tones/day capacity. The second plant will elevate the capacity up to 6000 tones.


The facility will produce electric power from coal gas, which triggers the global warming 21 times more compared to carbon dioxide. By producing 28 MW of energy, the facility will compensate electrical demand of approximately 1,500,000 people.


Entire design services are delivered with the aim of receiving “LEED Gold” certificate that documents green building and environmental compliance by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
