SEPICI continues it's tanning activity in Çaybaşı Village of Torbalı Province since 1974. Besides being one of the leading firms in Leather production the company actively takes part in preserving the environment.

It has started the first permanent wastewater treatment plant in Turkish Leather Industry in 1989, and treats its wastewaters according to the environmental regulations. SEPICI also has a Discharge Permit License given by the Ministry of Environment.

With the ongoing improvements over the years, wastewater treatment plant which includes physical, chemical and biological treatment units, has reached a capacity of 1000 cubic meters per day and a higher treatment efficiency. Our Company which keeps the dust emmisions under control with the VOC filtered ecological chimneys and dust removal equipments, has a Class B Emmission Permit License which is given for compliance with air quality by the Ministry of Environment and First Class License for Unhealthy Enterprises which certifies environmentaly appropiate production.

In addition to these activities, SEPICI brought the fleshing waste problem to an end- which was the biggest problem of leather industry - by carrying out a Project funded by TTGV and TUBITAK in 2004. This recovery plant also won an Environment Award. Now fleshing wastes are being processed and a valuable tallow oil which can be used in soap and tanning industries is produced.

SEPICI continues its environmental projects and improvements under constant surveillance. In 2010 the company has worked on composting of tannery sludge and carried lab scale studies into industrial scale. Thanks to this 2010 EBSO Environment Award winning study, very high sludge disposal costs are prevented, carbon footprint is reduced and also a useful material is provided to the horticulturers and gardeners.

SEPICI is conscious of its environmental responsibility and realizes it as an ongoing process that needs constant attention. Therefore, our company keeps track of the latest technologies and developments and continues its environmental projects and investments.
