Bursa textile sector will switch to alternative clean fuel until June 2024

In addition, it was stated that the establishment of a new incineration plant with solid (coal, wood, sawdust, prina, etc.) and liquid fuel in places where the natural gas line passes in Osmangazi, Yıldırım, Nilüfer (the connection road to the Kayapa-Görükle-Round Road and the northern vertical axis, excluding the West direction), Kestel, Gürsu and İnegöl Districts will not be allowed for the industry within the scope of the regulation made in subparagraph (b) of Article 1 of the İMÇK decision dated 06.09.2019 and numbered 90. It was decided that the transition to alternative clean fuels such as natural gas, solar, geothermal, heat pumps, and renewable energy sources in the fluidized-bed boilers should be completed by 01.06.2024 in these districts.

While there was a revival in investments in the Bursa textile sector with the incentive applications initiated in the 1980s, the liberalization of the imports of the machinery started in 1986 caused a serious sectoral growth and created a great explosion in textile production and export in the city. The textile sector in Bursa is one of the two sectors that carry the highest weight in the economy of the city today, along with the automotive industry. While Bursa has a total of 18 organized industrial zones, there are also approximately 4100 textile and apparel companies operating in 1 free trade zone.
