The GRS UnitAdvantages

Design Model:

GRS AdvantagesGRSoffers it Patented Technology to Progress Rail Services Corporation, to meet and surpass industryAbatement Applications using the GRS system. Purgingand Recovery options of multiple commodities will expandyour railcar cleaning facilities’ capabilities and services.The GRS unit ownership will give Progress Rail thecompetitive edge for expanding its business operationsand services. The GRS will potentially increase revenuesthrough its ability to expedite tank car cleaning.The GRS Reclamation capabilities has potential for futureservices for client commodity buy-back programs. Thesystem is capable of commodity recovery to 99.99% gradeand according to specifications. Gas Recovery System AS-EuropeGRSis looking to the U.S. to begin benchmarking a newGold standard for Abatement and ReclamationApplications in several U.S. markets including the RailRoad Industry.
