In light of new environmental targets and regulation, the government brings new initiatives into place. Such initiatives seek to back companies offering innovative energy saving solutions from their developing technologies. The market arrival of Lontra’s Blade Compressor® is relevant at a time when air compressors come under increased scrutiny.

New 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 compressors, this is where Lontra’s Blade Compressor® can effectively impact worldwide.
