Abstract

This paper aims to analyse the diffusion of environmental technologies. By studying the Turkish fertiliser industry as a case, we exemplify how a system is built around environmental technology applications and what factors are active in its diffusion. Our results show that regulations and public pressures are the main determinants in the diffusion of environmental technologies, indicating the importance of the institutional infrastructure, namely the interplay among firms, governmental and non-governmental organisations.
