The Technology Development and Solutions Center (GEBTEK) was opened in Turkey’s first OIZ specializing in chemicals, GEBKİM. GEBKİM OSB YKB V. İbrahim Araci, listing the goals they want to achieve with GEBTEK, said: “With GEBTEK, we aim to strengthen the position of the Turkish chemical industry in the world market and support the members of GEBKİM in areas such as digitization, compliance with the decarbonisation objective and the establishment of international business networks.
Turkey’s first Chemical Specialist OIZ, GEBKİM, launched the GEBKİM Technology Development and Solutions Center (GEBTEK) with the aim of inspiring other players on the global stage by increasing the intellectual capital of Turkish industry in the areas of technology, innovation and sustainability.
In addition to R&D studies in chemistry, GEBTEK will also support the digitization processes of GEBKİM members, compliance with current legal obligations, project management services, establishment of international commercial networks, human resources consulting , sustainability and respect for the Green Accord. With the academic seminars that it will organize, GEBTEK aims to enable its members to reach the qualified human resources they need and to establish a link between the sector and the academic world.
WE WILL PRODUCE SOLUTIONS TO INDUSTRY NEEDS
Speaking at the opening event of GEBKİM, GEBKİM President Vefa İbrahim Araç explained the services provided at the center: and international project management services, establishment of international business networks, support for feasibility of investments in international markets, institutional maturity analysis, consulting service in digitization and technology management, consulting service in transition to enterprise infrastructure systems, promotion and pilot applications of actors in the ecosystem of entrepreneurship, human resources service process consulting, GEBTEK Academy seminars “.
PILOT STUDIES FOR CHEMICALS THAT CANNOT BE MANUFACTURED IN TURKEY
GEBTEK, whose mission is to strengthen the position of the Turkish chemical industry in the global market and provide its members with the solutions and services they need in their transformation and technological development processes, will take important steps to reduce foreign dependence on their raw materials. material needs. The principles of the Green Agreement action plan will be applied at the center where R&D studies will be carried out for the production of chemicals that cannot be produced in Turkey. Using the green deal as a springboard and aiming to turn it into an opportunity, GEBKİM aims to lead by example in the green transformation of organized industrial zones specializing in chemicals.
THE SUSTAINABILITY OF THE COMPANY IS EXPANDING
Aiming to reset its carbon footprint, develop the zero waste project in practice, and extend the company’s sustainability with solar power panels, GEBTEK will also serve its members in establishing international business networks. GEBTEK, which will ensure the management of national and international qualification documents in chemistry, project advice and assistance in the feasibility of investments for international markets, is preparing to mark Turkey’s export success in the chemical industry.
GEBKIM WILL BE INTEGRATED IN MTAL
In the Technology Development Center, which will work with the Anatolian Vocational and Technical High School GEBKİM (GEBKİM MTAL), the aim is to establish advisory boards composed of names from academia and industry who have achieved success significant with their chemistry studies in and around Turkey. the world. At GEBTEK, where experts from fields such as circular economy and digital technology will participate, students will be able to witness the production processes of major chemicals and experience first-hand R&D studies in the field of chemistry.
“WE MUST BUILD THE FUTURE TODAY”
GEBKİM Board Chairman Vefa İbrahim Vehicle said, “With GEBTEK, where R&D studies will be carried out for the production of the main chemicals that we import, we aim to reduce our dependence on raw materials, provide technological solutions that will enable our members to produce in accordance with the Green Reconciliation Agreement and contribute to the digitization process. We cannot remain indifferent to the problems of our world. We will support all efforts to support our decarbonization process. “We have to build the future today,” he said.
