PISCATAWAY, N.J. - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has selected the Trane CenTraVac™ from the field of past Strategic Ozone Protection Award winners to receive its “Best-of-the-Best” Award.

Trane’s CenTraVac is one of the world’s most energy efficient large chilled water systems, supplying cooled air for occupants and residents of some of the largest office towers, manufacturing facilities, universities, and other multi-use buildings around the world. Some of its most prestigious installations include: Credit Suisse headquarters in New York City; the Burj Tower in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the world's tallest building; the Petronas Tower in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and the EPA’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.

This award recognizes the Trane CenTraVac’s contribution to the protection of the ozone layer and to the control of climate change. The EPA noted, “Through both managerial leadership, and technological innovation, Trane has drastically minimized the environmental impact of their centrifugal chillers by developing numerous technologies to detect and prevent refrigerant emissions, developing technologies to maximize the energy efficiency of centrifugal chillers...”

In naming Trane as Best of the Best, the EPA stated that “Trane and the CenTraVac chiller have continued the tradition as the technological and environmental leader in the HVAC industry.”

Trane was also recognized by the EPA for “implementing technologies and strategies to integrate chillers into buildings in efficient and sustainable ways, and taking a balanced approach to minimize impact on both ozone depletion and global warming.”
