Global Energy Award 2018
Climate and energy are one of the most relevant issues of our time. To reduce the earth's CO2 footprint it is becoming increasingly important to develop environmentally friendly and sustainable methods. Every year the readers of the British Global Energy Magazine award the European companies that have played a leading role in this field. We are proud to be one of them. This year we took home the trophy in "Most innovative Water Treatment Products 2018 - Europe". In particular, our developments in the area of glycol-free heat transfer fluids were honored.
Experts and users were convinced
The aqua-concept was selected by an expert committee of the publishing house. After publishing the shortlist and detailed company portraits, the readers of the magazine were able to choose their favourites in various areas.
