Gerhard Grothe was honored with an honorary award 2016 for his outstanding contributions to the "Cluster of Plastics and Energy". For 20 years, Grothe successfully founded the GREIBO-Chemie GmbH , founded by him in 1996, before handing over management to his daughter and son this year. The family-owned company is mainly active in the Asian market with fermenter chemicals and supplies so-called defoamers for the sugar industry, plastics recycling, wastewater treatment and paper making to the EU area. For the German market, GREIBO-Chemie GmbH manufactures, for example, the production of bearings for the metal processing industry, mainly manufacturing auxiliary materials (cooling lubricants). GREIBO-Chemie is characterized by the latest earnings and company growth. Already in the seventh year of its existence, a new production hall was built in 2003. In addition to his entrepreneurial commitment, Gerhard Grothe spent a considerable amount of time and effort on the development of the plastics and chemistry cluster. He is one of the key drivers in the field of biofuels specialty chemicals.
