We are delighted to announce that Episome is the national Energy Globe winner of Turkey!
The Energy Globe Award is one of today’s most prestigious environmental awards. The goal of the award is to present successful sustainable projects to a broad audience. Their main objective in cooperation with UNEP is, to point out that there are a lot of creative people on our world, including you, who have implemented great projects with solutions to many problems. Here, Episome is one of these creative people.
Episome is a biotechnology company that was founded as a research & development laboratory. Episome Biotech focuses on industrial enzyme technologies. Episome aims to provide sustainable and environmentally friendly products for biogas, textile, leather, paper, starch, detergent, rubber and biofuel industries. We believe this award shows that we are on the right track to reach our goal. We really appreciate this award.
Episome offers innovative and sustainable solutions which solve paper industry’s massive waste problem. Episome’s newly developed technology, Epicellulyse XT, enables use of paper mill sludge (waste) in biogas/renewable energy and organic fertilizer production. So we are working hard every day for innovative and sustainable solutions.
