Polinas receives ‘Zero Waste Certificate’

Turkey’s pioneering packaging company Polinas has received “Zero Waste Certificates” for all its facilities as a result of its sustainability efforts.

Operating under the roof of Yıldız Holding, Turkey’s leading packaging company Polinas has received a ‘Zero Waste Certificate’ for each of its three facilities. Granted by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization to companies that establish and run a zero waste management system in their facilities, Zero Waste Certification includes the processes of preventing wastefulness, more efficient use of resources, preventing or minimizing waste generation by reviewing its causes and, in the event that waste is generated, separately collecting and recycling it on site. Implementing significant sustainability projects, Polinas will contribute to raising awareness on environmentally conscious production in the packaging sector through the Zero Waste Certificates it received for all three of its facilities established on a total area of 190 thousand m2.

Önaldı: “We are growing in an environmentally respectful manner”

Remarking that the company attaches great importance to sustainability projects in line with its goal of becoming a ‘waste-free company,’ Polinas CEO Faik Önaldı said: “We adopt an environmentally respectful approach in each of our operational phases. We have made significant contributions to recycling through the projects we developed in recent years to reduce the total waste generated by Polinas facilities. And now, with the Zero Waste Certificates we have received for our facilities in three different locations, we continue our sustainability projects uninterruptedly.”

About Polinas:

Established in 1982 in Manisa as Turkey’s first BOPP (biaxially-oriented polypropylene) film manufacturer, Polinas is currently the leader of its industry in Turkey. In the 38 years since its establishment, Polinas continued its growth through constant investments in BOPP. In 2011, Polinas acquired Italy’s leading BOPET (biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate) film manufacturer Nuroll SpA and invested in a different film category. The company also established a new BOPET film factory in 2012 in Manisa. In addition, through sub-processing its films manufactured with high-technology machinery, Polinas started to offer flexible packaging materials such as metallized films, holographic films, safety holograms, coated barrier films, and tear tapes. Becoming one of the biggest manufacturers in Turkey in terms of total capacity, Polinas has also been listed among the top 5 in Europe. Polinas is the first and only Turkish company that can manufacture products such as holographic film, security holograms, holographic seals, hot stamping holograms and hologram shrinks, using Wide Web and Narrow Web machinery through its company BEP Hologram, founded in 2005. Transferring its Rotopaş factory manufacturing Sera branded products from İstanbul to Manisa in 2016, Polinas started to manufacture “Sera” consumer products including stretch films, garbage bags, freezing bags, aluminum foils, and baking paper. The company continues its operations with the aim of becoming the most preferred supplier and being among the top 10 companies in the global industry.
