In the studies of Determination of Industrial Emission Strategy of Turkey in accordance with Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (DIES) Project conducted by the General Directorate of Environmental Management of the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change (MoEUCC), the significant importance was given to the communication with the sectoral representatives in order to provide the accurate and relevant data needed for sectoral analysis. In this context, meetings are held with important sector representatives, and one of them was conducted via an online platform with the members of Turkish Ceramics Federation (TSF) on April 21st, 2022.

During the online meeting conducted on April 21st, 2022 with TSF, brief information was given on the DIES project and its objectives as well as data collection studies. All data provided by the participants will pave the way for the compliance and cost analysis and National Action Plan studies.
