    New technology

    Repsol is developing an innovative and pioneering proprietary technology for manufacturing a new type of polyol, the polycarbonate polyol, which would partially replace its raw material, propylene oxide, with CO2, thus reducing the emission of pollutants into the atmosphere and, consequently, the environmental impact.
  • New range

    High impact range

    We have recently launched a new range of high impact polypropylene copolymers under the Repsol ImpactO® brand. This new range will be used for car interior parts such as door panels or dashboards, and other everyday items such as shopping trolleys, suitcases, or child restraint systems for cars and bicycles.
  • Award for innovation
    Certificado como mejores productores de polímeros

    Award for innovation

    Repsol was conferred the Global Innovation Award covering all types of polymers by its customers at the annual European Plastics Converters (EuPC) meeting in 2016. This recognition is the results of a customer satisfaction survey completed by polymer customers across Europe, in which polymer producers' performance was measures in terms of: quality, standards compliance, delivery efficiency, communication, and innovation.

Quality in Repsol is a strategic value

Repsol Chemicals obtained its ISO 9001: 2015 (Quality Management Systems) certification in November 2017.

For us quality is a strategic value; management excellence, through continuous improvement, is one of the fundamental lines framing the various actions and commitments Repsol undertakes with its customers, shareholders, employees, suppliers and partners, as well as with society and any other interested party:

  • Our commitment is to manufacture competitive products that meet the needs and expectations of our customers, while fully complying with current legislation. 
  • Our organization is geared to process management, always mindful of continuous improvement and the LEAN philosophy. 
  • In January 2018 we obtained the FSSC 22000:2015 food safety certificate for all plastic polymers produced at our Tarragona complex. This certification is the first ever granted to a polyolefin production centre anywhere in the world, which is proof of our commitment and leadership in food safety. 

But for us, quality is much more than obtaining certificates and complying with legal requirements. It is a philosophy of day-to-day work that involves all the elements of the organization, guiding them towards the achievement of the same objective: the customer’s full satisfaction.
