Project Description

Provision of a senior loan of up to TRY 35 million to finance the development of a full-scale integrated solid waste management system in the province of Canakkale, Turkey pursuant to a 29 years concession awarded by the Canakkale Solid Waste Management Municipal Union. The project area, including the Canakkale and nearby municipalities with a total population of 173,000, is located at the west end of the Marmara Region. The EBRD loan will be complemented by a contribution of up to USD 1.5 million from the Clean Technology Fund.

The project will include the transfer of the existing municipal solid waste operations in Canakkale and the realisation of additional investments including the (i) construction of a mechanical biological treatment plant, (ii) procurement of a vehicle fleet, (iii) rehabilitation of the existing leachate treatment plant and (iv) related investments in the existing facility.

Project Objectives

The project aims to improve solid waste management system in the Canakkale region through investment and know-how, resulting in an integrated solution in line with Turkey's national solid waste programme.

Transition Impact

The transition impact stems from the following two transition qualities:

1) Competitive: The project will introduce a private sector operator to the provision of integrated solid waste management services. Given the current limited involvement of the private sector, a successful transaction will constitute an example for other municipalities which would benefit from similar PPP models for waste minimisation and attract other private investments in the sector.

2) Green: The project will contribute towards the Bank's Green Economy Transition by enhancing innovation and broadening environmental dimensions of the solid waste management sector by demonstrating the economic feasibility of implementing an integrated approach to waste management. The project will promote the sustainability of natural resources, support pollution prevention and will reduce the degradation of ecosystems The project will be included in the Near Zero Waste Programme of Turkey, which aims to foster the implementation of best available technologies for waste minimisation with high positive environmental impact and low market penetration.
