Moving towards a circular economy


The NØW Programme aims to mainstream the concept of waste minimisation within a circular economy framework, and of waste valorisation in the Turkish industrial and municipal sectors.

It will assist companies (both in the private and public sectors) in Turkey with the implementation of state-of-the-art waste minimisation technologies and processes with high potential for replicability and where there are clear market failures preventing. The eligibility of technologies will be determined on a case-by-case basis at project preparation stage.

The NØW Programme sub-projects have significant CO2, energy, water and material savings potentials. Currently, EBRD has organised “Resource Efficiency Audits” for companies in various sectors and industries such as cement, flexible packaging, dairy, confectionary, metal production, PVC profile manufacturing, glass production and municipal. Signed sub-projects are listed below;
