It is an organization formed in 2011. Our company has successfully completed the TÜBİTAK project with its R&D studies on "Chitosan Production and Use of Chitosan from Shellfish Products as an Intermediate Material for Different Sectors". Our company, Kitin-Kitosan, which has not been produced in Turkey before, has started its production activities in Antalya within the scope of the SAN-TEZ project of the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology. Chitin is the second most common biopolymer in the world after cellulose. It is the main component of crustacean products such as crab and shrimp, and is also found in the skeleton of insects and in the structure of cell walls of fungi.
Although there are many derivatives of chitin, the most important among them is chitosan. Chitosan, which is a biopolymer that can be obtained in abundance from natural sources, shows superior properties compared to other biopolymers in terms of its non-toxicity, biodegradability, biocompatibility, chemical and physical properties.
