Low carbon footprint solutions

Our focus is the valorization of the forest by developing an intelligent and sustainable bio-economy, transforming bio-based raw materials into high added valued materials. 

Starting from both Gum Rosin and Tall Oil Rosin, we offer low carbon footprint solutions for everyday products such as printing inks, adhesives, road marking and coatings.

Respol seeks to make use of the soil in a rational manner optimizing the use of energetic resources, material goods and minimizing the volume of solid residues: we favor the re-use, recovery and valuation of our residues.
