As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Selena Group – one of the leading producers and distributors of construction chemicals and the owner of the TYTAN brand – smoothly diversified its production by expanding it with Tytan Health, a sanitizer which has attracted a lot of interest from customers. For this purpose, Selena used the processing capacity of the adhesives production line to make a disinfectant which was in a short supply in the market at that time. In cooperation with local authorities as part of the #SelenaHelps campaign, the first batch – 10,000 packages – was transferred by the company free of charge to over 50 entities, including hospitals and medical facilities from Lower Silesia, children from the Between Heaven and Earth Foundation, and seniors. #SelenaHelps is one of the elements of the company’s CSR policy.

In this way the heat balance of the building has changed favorably, which will translate into changes in electricity consumption and greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere.
