Optimising logistics to enable local scrap capabilities

Previously, Ipragaz Türkiye accumulated scrap cylinders at Dörtyol before transporting them to a remote scrapping location 1,100 kilometres away. The need to accumulate scrap cylinders forced employees to work overtime, increasing both cost and health and safety risks.

Optimising the network eliminated the plant-to-plant logistics movement by enabling local scrap capabilities, creating a safer and more efficient working environment. Additionally, Ipragaz Türkiye reduced its carbon footprint by eliminating 140 tonnes of annual CO2 emissions.

Ipragaz Türkiye will continue exploring opportunities to further reduce its carbon footprint.
