Lontra’s Blade Compressor® has been shortlisted for its excellence in design and product innovation against a record number of entries for the prestigious awards.
Lontra has been shortlisted for its commitment to sustainable operations, business model and demonstrable results. Lontra’s Blade Compressor® is the first clean sheet compressor design in 80 years. Europe expends 10% of its industrial energy in air compression; often referred to as the fourth utility. The new design will allow customers to significantly reduce their energy consumption and operational costs. Lontra’s technology is already being used in the water industry and is being developed for new applications and markets.
The Sustainability Leader Awards have run since 2007, with past winners including AkzoNobel, B&Q and University of Reading. The awards have grown to encompass all aspects of business sustainability in the UK. Open to all businesses and organisations the awards are one of only a handful to be included in the highly regarded RSA accreditation scheme.
The winners will be announced on Thursday 19 November, and will automatically qualify for the European Business Awards for the Environment.
