Students of Biello Aragón Institute visit the factory in Sabiñánigo


A group of students of the medium degree of electrical and automatic installations and the higher degree in automation and industrial robotics of the Biello Aragón Institute have visited the Ercros factory in Sabiñánigo; a visit that is repeated each year.

The students, 16 in total and accompanied by two teachers, have been able to learn firsthand the production processes of the factory. The technical staff of the factory has explained to the visitors the operation of the facilities and the productive activity that takes place in the center. Afterwards, the visitors, accompanied by Ercros staff, visited the chlorine-soda and sodium chlorate plants.

Students and teachers have valued the visit in a very positive way and have emphasized that the visit to the factory of Ercros is an interesting contact with the productive chemical sector, as well as an adequate complement to the theoretical knowledge that is exposed in the classroom.

Ercros is the first European manufacturer of TCCA, a product widely used for the treatment of pool water and whose production is carried out exclusively at the factory in Sabiñánigo. In 2018, this factory has increased its chlorine production capacity to 45,000 tons.
