Taren Engineering , which develops delintation technologies that increase cotton productivity and quality, and provides comprehensive services , has achieved rapid growth since its establishment in 2017. ‘Let it be Cotton! – Let Cotton Become! ” Taren, which develops solutions in cotton seed production at the very beginning of the textile supply chain with the slogan, has made improvements that will contribute to the sector. Founded in Adana by Sercenk Kılıç, who has 20 years of strong experience in the seed sector, Taren Engineering carries out important projects especially in the textile markets where cotton is produced .
Sercenk Kılıç, who defines the delintation process as separating the cotton seed from the fibers, sliver and foreign substances on it, said that they developed 100% domestic and patented delintation machines (punctures). Sword; “We aim to establish a delintation facility for companies in the global cotton and cotton seed industry and help the Turkish cotton industry increase its market share. We also offer R&D support in this regard. The technologies we develop and the services we offer contribute to the productivity increase of the entire textile industry, especially the cotton producers ”.
Acid puncture is superior to mechanical delintation
Indicating that the delintation machine they developed and patented performs the drilling process with acid, Sercenk Kılıç stated that compared to mechanical systems, this system completely cleans the fibers and residues on the seed.
Sword; “In mechanical delintation, fiber and unwanted micro-organisms from the field or gin still remain on the seed. Delintation with acid eliminates these harmful effects in terms of cotton harvest quantity and quality. The seeds passing through the delintation are sieved in the precision screening group machines and the hollow light seeds are separated. In addition, in the seed coating process applied for seed yield, the seeds that are pierced with acid are coated more homogeneously and better preserve the loaded pesticides within the seed. In mechanical delintation, on the other hand, the fibers remaining on the seed prevent homogeneous coating, and the cleaning brushes in these systems can scratch the seed and damage the embryo inside the seed.
Delintation is essential for efficiency
Research and field studies show that acid-delineated seeds achieve much higher yields than seeds that have been seeded or mechanically delineated. The seeds with the highest germination capability can be selected by subjecting the seeds to tests before they are pierced and after they are seeded. This means using less seeds compared to seed cultivation. By planting 2.5 kg of cotton seeds per decare, a serious profit can be obtained in breeding costs. It is possible to obtain higher yields per decare provided that the seed quality is adhered to.
Sercenk Kılıç said that delintegrated seed strengthens producers’ hands in combating diseases and pests in cotton agriculture. Sword; “The acid and hot air used during the delintation process enable the destruction of unwanted micro organisms on the surface of the seed. Thus, a purer seed is obtained ”.
Kılıç stated that it is an advantage for companies to have their own facilities in terms of delintation, which provides raw material savings and increased yield in cotton production. Sword; “By owning their own delta facilities, companies are freed from contract processing costs. In fact, it creates a serious income area for the company by performing this operation of other seed companies. For example; A facility that processes 5000 tons of seed oil per year can pay off the investment cost in 1 year ”.
Everywhere where cotton is produced is our potential market
Reminding that they offer a patented technology in the field of cotton, Sercenk Kılıç announced that they have developed strategies for important cotton and textile countries in the global market. Kılıç continued his words as follows. Our focus is on textile manufacturers, seeders and spinners who plan their own fields and produce their own cotton. World cotton production in India, Pakistan, China, USA, Brazil, Turkey, Uzbekistan and African countries come forward. All markets have potential for us. Under the management of Fırat Hınis, our International Sales and Marketing Director, we have achieved successful results in some serious studies we have carried out in some markets. We will share the details with the public soon. “
Explaining that they offer 50% price advantage to their customers compared to their well-known competitors in the market, Kılıç stated that they provide uninterrupted service and spare parts after machine sales. Kılıç informed that they carried out the first drilling process for 500 tons of seed processing, depending on the agreement, after the installation of the facility, and that they provided job and training support to their partners.
Providing information about export markets, Taren Engineering International Sales and Marketing Director Fırat Hınis underlined that they have started their global marketing efforts rapidly. Hınis announced that they established a representative office in the Okora-Punjab region of Pakistan after the representation they established in Tashkent, the capital city of Uzbekistan. Stating that they are continuing their efforts to establish a representative and sales network in various other regions of the world where cotton is on the agenda, Hınis said; “As a matter of fact, we are in intense negotiations in Africa, I hope that we will introduce this technology to Africa in the near future. We closely follow all developments in cotton and cotton seed processing in the world. We will take part in important fairs and organizations after the global pandemic crisis we are in. “
Urfa, in Turkey’s largest resort delintation Taren Seed Co.
Referring to the Taren Tohum delintation facility they have established in Urfa, Sercenk Kılıç gave the following information; “Urfa and this region produces 40% of the total cotton in Turkey. However, there was no delintation facility to meet the needs of the region. Sending seeds outside the region created serious problems such as time loss, freight cost, difficulty in tracking. Taren Tohum, which started its activities, has a seasonal cotton seed processing capacity of 15 thousand tons. Our facility has 7 punctures that we produce. With an installed capacity of Turkey’s largest cotton seed delintation facility. We provide confidence and convenience to our partners with our experienced staff. “
Continuing its activities with 20 years of experience, Taren Engineering creates a clear and profitable response to meeting the demands for sustainability, transparent production and protection of resources demanded in the textile supply chain at the cotton production stage.
