In our facility in Gördes, rather than a sole mining activity, our business focuses on blending technology, metallurgy and chemistry, producing high added value and innovative products.
Unique in the northern hemisphere, our Meta Nickel plant is among the top 10 facilities in the world with its technology and process management. In our company, we are using one of the 25 autoclaves in the world, a reflection of a brand-new mining concept.
With this 32.5 meters long, 7 meters tall and approximately 580 tons boiler, we extract the elements that may damage the system during the process from the ore, and we enrichen nickel with sulfuric acid under high pressure in the autoclave boiler which is a completely closed-circuit system. Nickel, which is at a maximum of 1 percent in the ore we extract from the soil, increases up to 38 percent in the autoclave boiler.
All of these; requires a human resource and business model that develops its own technology along with a serious R&D in line with needs. Our multi-disciplinary facility hosting geological, geophysical, mining, chemical, electrical and electronic engineers, with its advanced technology and know-how, is one of the best examples for value-added production in Turkey.
In the heart of our facility lies our "technology atelier" working in collaboration with our R&D center. Thanks to our atelier, which develops the technologies we need in production processes, all our equipment and devices can provide the highest added value production.
Our passion for R&D does not stem only from our will to do business on global standards. Our aim is to be able to produce all machinery and equipment that we use in production in the near future with our own technology, and to install our additional facilities completely with the machines and hardware we produce. Thus, we aim to produce the raw material of the future, nickel, with R&D, innovation and advanced technology with an evergrowing value added process, and to
contribute to the reduction of Turkey's current account deficit keeping Turkey's resources in Turkey, with the integrated structure that we will establish in our facility.
