New compressor regulation has come into place in light of new environmental targets. The government brings new initiatives into place that seek to back companies offering innovative energy saving solutions from developing technologies. The market arrival of Lontra’s Blade Compressor® machine is relevant at a time when air compressors come under increased scrutiny.
New Compressor Regulation
Identified as huge energy users, the European Union (under the Ecodesign Project Lot 31) is drafting new regulations that target air compressor energy usage. The expectation is that these will come into effect within the next three to five years. Over in the US, the Department of Energy is following suit too.
These new regulations aim to establish a labelling system for relative compressor efficiency, already implemented for electric motors. Expected to drive the adoption of more efficient air compressors, this is where Lontra’s Blade Compressor® technology can effectively impact worldwide.
