The Innovation Club held its annual meeting for 2004 at GRP Plasticorr Ltd. premises, after handing over the Innovation Prize for year 2003. In addition to the prize receiving companies, known public personalities and the press were also present.
Manufacturing Tanks

GRP Plasticorr Ltd. -by its own R&D and outsourcing- worked out the technical requirements and manufacturing technology of the double-walled storage tank production made of composite, aligning to the measure selection of the most frequently used vessels. As a result of this activity, by now we have got all licences of the Hungarian authorities for the production of eliptical headed cylindrical tanks that can be installed above or underground, having the following nominal capacities: 5 m3, 20 m3 és 30 m3.

In the USA storage of dangerous liquids underground is done exclusively in storage tanks with reinforced composite plastic structure. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the environment protection authority of USA inflicts serious penalties on any environment pollution traceable back to tank leakage, therefore the tank operators are primarily interested in safe storage.

Recognition of this lead to the point, that the aspects of safe operation are more important than the price of tanks. In practice this means, that in spite of higher investment costs, the operators in USA do not even try using steel storage tanks, but prefer the composite tanks for the long term advantages.
In our cost sensitive home market, the aspects of the safety of operation - due to lack of financial resources - are often de-emphasized.

Therefore, when we want to compete with the storage methods based on the use of traditional steel storage tanks, we have to face a double challenge:

 Several hundred thousand square meters of PLASTIMOL® coating prove, that the pitting corrosion problems, which the operators of steel tanks have to face on either the soil or the stored media side, are solved for several decades. There is no electrostatic charging problem, since our coatings are conductive. It is a proven fact, that the storage tanks with our coatings are maintenance free, you can forget the huge amount of dangerous waste materials produced when cleaning the tanks. But this is not enough yet...

 According to the slogan "against the stream", we took the challenge, and proved, that the PLASTIMOL® storage tanks with 5-30 m3 manufactured by us offer a competitive alternative regarding investment costs, when compared to steel storage tanks.

All without a single gram of steel...

And by the way, another little advantage: The mass of a PLASTIMOL® tank is less than one third of a similar steel tank. Anyone having installed a tank knows, what this means regarding transport and moving costs.
