The Lacq Research Centre


GRL

The GRL is a research structure founded in 1959 on the Lacq/Mourenx platform. Specialised in the conception and development of acrylic polymers, sulphur derivatives and adsorbent products, the Lacq Research Centre is one of the ten Arkema research centres in the world. It also takes action in the field of technical support. Knowledge sharing and transfer are also important assignments of the GRL. They are embodied in particular through the partnership in place with the Chemstart'up platform, which groups together early-stage innovating businesses. The GRL puts its know-how at their disposition and thus accompanies their development.
