The new water analysis laboratory

The investment for the new analytical laboratory, in the amount of more than one million and 400 thousand euros, is authorized to be built an avant-garde, modern and durable structure. The premises, obtained from former offices and the warehouse of the headquarters in via Giordania in Grosseto, have been completely redesigned taking into account the flow of samples.
