Drawing attention to the fact that the tar used in the field of health, protection of equipment, and many other areas for centuries has succumbed to the developing technology and has disappeared, Mr. GÜNGÖR said, “We aim to record the traditional tar production format that is forgotten. We are trying to move the next generations of conventional tar production.
Extracting tar, which has a wide range of usage from road construction to plastics industry, from healthcare to shoemaking, is brought to pine trees tar furnace, that is, to enterprises that are produced under primitive conditions. Tar furnace is burned with firewood. There is another container in the hearth. The trees are placed here and the mouth is closed in an airtight manner. As the wood burns around, the pine trees in the sealed container are throwing the water thanks to the heat
The tar obtained by distillation is transferred to the outside with a hose placed in a container.
