Sustainability

Relinea is committed to using manufacturing and innovation to make the shift towards a more sustainable business. Integrating sustainability into our business model and ways of working creates value for all. At every stage of our process, we reduce our environmental impact through innovation, R&D, and waste minimisation. Early engagement through planning and design combined with robust advanced product solutions ensures a reliable and sustainable future.

Sustainable GRP Solutions

The construction, operation & subsequent demolition of all built facilities account for 40 – 45% of global energy use. The concept of sustainability imposes ‘a new way of thinking,’ in which environmental impact is considered at every stage of a product’s lifecycle. It is imperative that we all work towards reducing our impact on the environment to ensure a sustainable future.

Global construction companies. Water treatment facilities. International technology firms. Worldwide energy and transportation providers. Our customers in industries worldwide are moving towards an eco-friendlier future. They need alternatives to traditional materials such as steel, concrete, and wood. We are committed to providing the solutions to help our customers achieve their environmental objectives while meeting their requirements for performance, strength, and economic value.

Relinea is known for providing GRP products and services that continually improve the quality of life and the environment by fulfilling society’s need for infrastructure including, clean water, construction, transportation, and reliable energy – in a sustainable way.

How can GRP help to reduce environmental impact?

Environmental benefits of GRP:

  • 75% less energy is needed to produce glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) than steel
  • GRP structures are 75% lighter than steel which means 50% less energy is needed for transport and assembly
  • GRP produces fewer greenhouse gasses and consumes less energy at the production stage than both steel and aluminum
  • Recyclable – GRP can be incinerated in cement kilns to recover embodied energy, and incorporated into the production of cement
  • The thermosetting resins used in GRP are far stronger and more durable than other plastics, giving most GRP products a lifespan of more than 50 years.

With a wealth of experience in sustainable innovation, Relinea is uniquely positioned to address a wide range of customer needs on the rapidly evolving pathway to decarbonization and to help them build a better, more sustainable world. By working together, we can reduce our effect on the environment and create a sustainable future for all.

Revolutionary GRP - the material of the future!

Products made from GRP can offer significant environmental benefits because of their characteristically low weight, good mechanical properties, and excellent resistance to corrosion.

GRP can be effectively used in the development of new structures to achieve a superior service life without the need for regular, costly maintenance. As we work towards sustainability goals and extending the life of products, glass-reinforced plastic can also be incorporated into existing structures to extend existing service life.

With an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, GRP will reduce the overall carbon footprint of a project. Using a revolutionary approach that focuses on intelligent GRP design combined with innovative manufacturing processes, Relinea can develop solutions that have a much lower carbon footprint in comparison to traditional building materials such as concrete & steel. Built to last, GRP is the material of the future for those seeking energy-efficient, green, sustainable solutions.
