Energy Efficiency

With its environmental consciousness, Yildizlar Yatirim Holding produces most of its own energy from its own sources by means of environmental-friendly technologies. Our energy efficiency projects, we realized between 2013-2016 with this point of view, correspond to 1,300,000 trees/year.


At Kocaeli MDF Factory, there exists a co-generation facility consisting of three 6-MW gas tribunes. We satisfy approximately 25% of our electricity need by this way.


At Kocaeli MDF Factory, the natural gas consumption was minimized by means of tribune implementation constructed and activated in the Press 2 Facilities. Additionally, 30% energy efficiency is gained in power consumption of the relevant facility.


Furthermore, considerable energy saving is procured by means of energy implementation made in the Press 1 and Press 3 drying fans of Kocaeli MDF Factory.


At our Kocaeli MDF Factory, a hot air transport channel is constructed between the boiler flues and press 3 drying line; so unused energy is recycled and hence the natural gas consumption has been zeroed. Accordingly, release of carbon gas has been prevented. Our aforesaid project has been awarded by the jury’s special prize of Senver 14, Sevap 3.


At our Mersin MDF Factory, we use energy boiler of 65 MW for recycling and conversion of production wastes to heat (thermal) energy. At our facility, the production is continued with waste water treatment facility, temporary waste storage space and press exhaust has washing line in environment-friendly manner.


At our Manisa Particle Board Facilities, the wastes of raw materials, not used in production, are converted to energy at our boiler with the capacity of 26.5 MW


At our Bolu Particle Board Facilities, there exists an energy boiler with the capacity of 9.5 MW.


At Bolu Particle Board Factory, the new boiler system- the state-of-the-art technology product, providing high efficiency, being user friendly and having higher level of labor safety - replaced the old boiler system that was inefficient in operation and resulting in heat imbalance during production upon modification carried out in that factory. Our aforesaid project was rewarded by runner-up prize in the category of “Large Scale Corporation – Automation and Technological Innovation” out of the Efficiency Project Prizes given by the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology. Furthermore, our project, having been granted Senver 15 Certificate of Appreciation and enabling use of the boiler flue gas heat in the form line, is another environmentalist implementation at our Bolu Particle Board Factory.


In addition, planning of the projects for energy saving at IGSAS Kutahya Factory has been completed. One of these projects is the energy saving project to be achieved by means of replacement of the existing motors by new efficient ones. The other one is the project of increasing energy efficiency to be implemented to the pumping systems.
