T Türkiye is recovering from the devastating earthquake disaster Gökçen Parlar Ünal [email protected] Editor ürkiye was shaken by two earthquakes on February 6, 2023. AFAD announced the magnitudes of the two earthquakes on February 6 as 7.7 and 7.6, and their depths as 8.6 and 7 km. According to the US Geological Agency (USGS) data, seven different large and medium-large earthquakes, the smallest of which was 5.7, occurred within 11 hours from 04.17 on February 6, when the first earthquake occurred. Therefore, it is possible to talk about a chain of earthquakes in the region, especially on the first day. Türkiye is still recovering from the disaster, but the scale of the devastation in 11 provinces is quite large. Therefore, we can say that the region’s economic and social recovery process will continue for several years. Louisa Vinton, Resident Representative of the United Nations (UN) Development Program (UNDP) in Türkiye, said that the cost of the earthquakes to Türkiye is estimated to be more than $100 billion. Speaking on March 16 in Brussels ahead of a donor conference for earthquake victims, Vinton said, “It is clear from the calculations made to date, and what the government has presented and what international partners have verified, that the damage will exceed $100 billion.” This is equivalent to 11.6 percent of Türkiye’s gross domestic product (GDP) for 2021. Vinton, who attended the meeting via video from Gaziantep, said this figure only covers Türkiye for now. Vinton described Hatay, one of the hardest-hit provinces in Türkiye, as a “scene of doom”. On March 6, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced that the death toll from the February 6 earthquake in Kahramanmaraş had risen to 46,104. “The number of collapsed, emergency collapse and heavily damaged buildings in our 11 cities in the earthquake zone reaches 230,000 and the number of independent sections in these buildings reaches 645,000,” Erdoğan said. The number of people staying in tents was announced as 1 million 440 thousand. The earthquake not only showed us the mistakes we made, but also taught us lessons that have been paid dearly. It is the greatest wish of all of us that our country never repeats its mistakes again. New constructions in the region will be built with great care, taking into account the earthquake reality. Many municipalities outside the disaster zone have created emergency action plans and started to take measures quickly against possible new disasters. durability tests of existing buildings and retrofitting-evacuation works are continuing at full speed. In the process, countries from all over the world rushed to help. The teams who returned to their countries with tears in their eyes told that people who had lost everything were carrying food and tea to them. All the teams that came to support and help us in this great disaster, all the aid sent, all the means mobilized and all the people who hugged each other in the disaster area without discriminating language, religion and nation reminded each of us that all the peoples of the world are brothers and sisters and that love is the strongest medicine. We thank everyone and hope that such a disaster will never happen again anywhere in the world. 3 2023

An international online webinar on “Alternative and Natural Refrigerants” was organized within the framework of the REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE learning program project, of which SOSIAD from Türkiye is one of the National Lead Partners. The webinar attracted great interest worldwide and was watched by 370 participants. The presentations in English were simultaneously translated into six languages, including Turkish. The training on “Use of Flammable Refrigerants” was given by Marino Bassi, Expert Trainer from ATF Italian Association of Refrigeration Technicians, and Kıvanç Aslantaş, Member of the Board of Directors of SOSİAD, made a presentation on “Sample Applications for Carbon Dioxide Systems”. The first speaker of the seminar, Marco Buoni, President of the European Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Contractors Association (AREA), introduced the REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE learning program. While giving information about the materials on the website www.realalternatives.eu, Buoni drew attention to the following points: “The training materials on the website are available in 17 languages to make the most of the 20 countries involved in the project. There are free downloadable training materials on refrigerants including flammable refrigerants (HCs, HFOs, Low GWP mixtures), Ammonia. The training consists of 9 modules. Licensed trainings are provided in laboratories with the necessary equipment in each country, focusing on safety issues, with best practice examples. These trainings can be on-site or remote. Theory and practical certifications continue in the project member countries. Over 2 thousand people have been certified so far.” “We Need Better Energy Efficiency, Low Energy Consumption Systems and Use of Renewable Energy” Didier Coulomb, General Manager of IIFIIR, gave information about IIR, which was founded in 1908 and currently has more than 950 member organizations from 59 countries, in his presentation titled “The Importance of Training and Certification”: “The importance of refrigeration is increasing day by day all over the world. The need for cold chain for food safety is increasing. Population is increasing, cooling capacity is ten times less in developing countries than in developed countries. One out of every two medicines sold, especially vaccines, is sensitive to heat. Global energy needs for air conditioning will triple by 2050. New technologies in IT, biotechnologies and space exploration require temperature stabilization. Heat pumps are likely to play a unique role in the energy systems of the future. Gas liquefaction (hydrogen, CO2), cryogenic applications in hospitals, and many more are creating a need for more skilled technicians in refrigeration. Refrigeration is responsible for 7.8% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Refrigeration accounts for 20% of global energy consumption and the graph is rising. We need better energy efficiency, low energy consumption systems and the use of renewable energy. We need to promote the use of low GWP and natural refrigerants as much as possible. Low-GWP refrigerants can be flammable, toxic or operate under high pressure. In the EU, technicians working in this field must be certified.” Blanca Gomez (CNI) from Spain, Liana Ghahramanyan (Shirakatsy Lyceum) from Armenia, Prof. Gratiela Tarlea (AGFR) from Romania, Stepan Stojanov (SCHKT) from Czechia and Peter Tomlein (SZCHKT) from Slovakia took the floor to share their experiences on the training process of REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE project partners in Europe.

The statement made by the association is as follows: “The addition of 58 billion cubic meters of natural gas reserves found by our Fatih Drilling Ship in Çaycuma-1 drilling to the natural gas reserves discovered in the Black Sea in recent years, reaching a total of 710 billion cubic meters of natural gas reserves in the Black Sea, is a very important development that will reduce our country’s dependence on foreign energy. Considering that almost all of the natural gas, which has become indispensable for the people of our country, is currently imported from abroad, both these new gas reserve discoveries and the fact that the total capacity of the Silivri natural gas storage facility, the new phase of which was inaugurated last week, has reached 4.6 billion cubic meters, as well as the capacity development works in the Tuz Lake storage area are developments that we attach great importance to and closely follow in terms of natural gas supply security. We are pleased to see that our country, which has a strong infrastructure with 7 international natural gas pipelines, 4 LNG facilities including 2 floating storage and gasification units (FSRU) and 2 underground natural gas storage facilities, is about to become a center in natural gas trade. In addition to the 710 billion cubic meters of natural gas reserves in the Black Sea, which we hope will contribute significantly to our country’s needs in the coming decades, our country is also in a critical position in terms of transporting Eastern Mediterranean, Turkmen, Iraqi and even Russian gas, which is likely to be supplied to the market in the coming period, to European markets. With the advantage of having the only gas trade market in the region, we believe that our country is moving towards its goal of becoming a center in natural gas trade”.
