History of the company

The group of companies GORO originated in 1999, when the Research Center for Environmental Resources GORO was established.  The enterprise was founded by action group of specialists in the fields of business, biochemistry, botany, thermodynamics, mechanics and electronics.

The basic technology of the enterprise is SFT, which was chosen as maximally effective extraction technology of biologically active substances from plant material.

The company employees developed, produced and put into operation extraction equipment; hold the following range of work on:

  • Research works on study the composition and benefits of plant materials and extracts
  • Development works on establishment of equipment with the best manufacturing capabilities

Since 2000 SRC ER GORO actively and successfully works on the market of ingredients for cosmetic products. In 2004 the entry to the market of food ingredients was performed , also "GORO-Ingeneering" was founded (developing, producing and delivery of Laboratory and production equipment). A number of laboratory and production developments in the field of equipment was realized and successfully used by GORO partners in Russia and CIS.

Thereby, GORO is the first Russian enterprise that mastered SFT in industrial scale.

Since the foundation one of the main GORO task was the promotion of SFT in Russia and particularly:

  • Collection, processing and distribution of information on possibilities and advantages of SFT in the field of various kinds of production

  • Launch by the Ministry of Education and Science the federal target program "Development and implementation of supercritical fluid technologies " under the federal scientific and technical program "Research and development on priority directions of development of science and technique

In November 2005 a part of GORO functions (in the field of SFT implementation into domestic economics and consolidation of state, scientific and commercial structures) was transferred to the Consortium of organizations in the field of supercritical fluid technologies.

Since 2006 GORO is focused on a researches and production of extraction of plan materials, also on development, producing and selling of laboratory and production equipment for SFT-extraction.

At that, GORO group of companies actively continues to participate in the SFT-implementation process into economy of Russian Federation. In March 2007 investment group GORO (incl. GORO group of companies, Stella concern, JSC commercial bank Stella-bank) took the lead in a project "Activization of SFT implementation in Russian Federation", within the bounds of which the company is ready to invest 9 million Rub into producing of laboratory SFT-equipment and 150 million Rub into production SFT-equipment.
