  • A new Polymerization department (2020)

    GRS Plant has recently completed the construction of a new advanced polymerization department called “Poly3”. The new polymerization department comprising 8 reactors, for a total volume of 137 cubic meters, uses the most sophisticated synthesis control and regulation equipment to ensure a high production standard in terms of energy saving and green chemistry.

    The capacity of the new polymerization department exceeds 25,000 t / y of polymers in aqueous solution.

  • Sustainability in GRS

    Since 2012 GRS has started its photovoltaic system. 408 photovoltaic panels distributed over an area of 700 square meters on the roofs of the various buildings on the site, guarantee GRS a production of 123,727 kWh with a reduction in CO2 emissions of 70 t / y.

    For years GRS has been committed to minimizing the consumption of fresh water in the various production processes. Thanks to advanced purification processes, which guarantee its reuse, GRS recycles about 30% of the fresh water entering the plant.

    GRS Chemical Technologies is ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certified.
