  • Ship recycling in Turkey is carried out in an industrial zone that is state-owned and leased out to private companies. The yards are located in Aliaga, around 50 km north of Izmir on the Aegean coast in an area that hosts a large cluster of heavy industries.
  • The ship recycling zone was first established by a government decree in 1976. Most of the workers originally come from Tokat and Sivas in Eastern Turkey and have settled in Aliaga.
  • The Turkish ship recycling yards apply the so-called landing method. The bow of the vessel is grounded on the shore while the stern is still afloat. The blocks are then lifted by cranes onto a drained and impermeable working area. The yards do not resort to the gravity method, that is, dropping blocks into the water or onto the beach.
  • In 2018, two yards in Aliaga were approved and included in the EU List..
