Turkish gold production by the end of 2021 is estimated to surpass the record high level in the history of the Turkish Republic that was made last year, Mehmet Yılmaz, president of the Turkish Gold Miners Association, told Anadolu Agency on March 3.
Production in 2020 peaked at 42 tonnes but is estimated to reach a volume of 45 tonnes at least by the year-end, Yılmaz said.
In tandem with the global energy transitions, Turkey has gone through a major transition since 2002, which I refer to as Transition 1.0. Opening the market to competition while meeting the increasing demand was not an easy process, but strong political commitment, vision, and stability made it possible.
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has said it is providing a new 400 million euro financing package for small-scale renewable energy and resource efficiency projects Turkey in a bid to support the country's continuous drive towards a low-carbon economy, in a written statement on Dec. 7.
According to Spanish JosÃ© Maria Blazquez, writer of World Olive Encyclopedia, olive growing started in Anatolia about 6,000 years ago. The worldâs oldest-known olive oil production was discovered near the Aegean town of Urla, in the ancient city Clazomenae.
