Economic sustainability of GRP

The long lifetime and durability of GRP products such as Amiblu pipes and fittings prove beneficial with regard to business budgets: They are a trouble-free long-term investment and a cost-effective solution for all shareholders involved in a project. GRP products save time and money in that they do not require any heavy lifting gear or on-site welding works, feature an exceptionally long and generally maintenance-free service life, and low lifetime cost.


In the case of GRP pipes, the designer benefits from the pipes’ low coefficient of thermal expansion, and if necessary high angular deflection with specially designed flexible joint system for optimizing the pipe route without bends and thereby saving costs. Building contractors profit from the pipes’ light weight, their quick and easy jointing, the ability to accommodate small misalignments or settlements, and the uncomplicated installation with trenchless technologies such as relining and microtunneling. Operators enjoy a low-maintenance product with a service life of more than 150 years, minimum consumption of resources, and maximum energy output for e.g. hydropower.

Thanks to the material’s very long lifetime expectancy, supreme quality, and environmental friendliness, GRP products are solutions for generations and contribute to each of the three pillars of sustainability.


Environmental sustainability

Environmental sustainability

Environmental sustainability is the ability to keep renewable resource use, pollution, and non-renewable resource depletion at levels that don’t harm the future of our planet. This pillar of sustainable development is needed to be given top priority: It’s a prerequisite for both social and economic sustainability.


Social sustainability

Social sustainability

Social sustainability is the ability of a social system, such as a country, to maintain a defined level of social wellbeing indefinitely. Future generations should have the same or greater access to social resources as the current generation. Furthermore, there should be equal access to social resources within a generation.
