DÖNKASAN A.Ş., established in 1978, is involved in the collection of wastepaper and sorting them according to their types as well as the preparation of wastepaper for the production of paper and cardboard.
In 2015, the Kartonsan-Olmuksan International Paper partnership was ended and Kartonsan took over DÖNKASAN’s assets and royalties.
Kartonsan held 50% of the shares of its jointly controlled entity, Dönkasan Dönüşen Kağıt Hammadde Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. (“Defunct Dönkasan”), and as of 10 June 2015, it has been in the process of ‘division’ in accordance with the full-split process. As an outcome of the division, Kartonsan held 100% of the shares and Dönkasan DönüŞtürülen Atık Kağıt Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. (“Dönkasan”) was established.
With the new set-up, DÖNKASAN provides 2,000 tons of wastepaper to Kartonsan. Kartonsan’s aim is to develop DÖNKASAN further in the coming years and to increase its collection capacity.
