Yesterday evening in Lyon the award ceremony of the European Business Award of the Environment took place. Unfortunately OCI Nitrogen didn't win a price this time. Daimler (Germany) did the honors in the category Process. Gert Jan de Geus received a diploma of the European Commissioner Karmenu Vellu for reaching the top 3 with project 'COOL!'
COOL! represents the development of a unique innovative indirect cooling system. The result is a reduction in particle emission from 174 tonnes a year to zero. Moreover, energy consumption in the cooling section has been reduced by 75% and production has increased by 20%.
The European Business Awards for the Environment are awarded to eco-innovative companies that successfully combine innovation, competitiveness and outstanding environmental performance.
