Greenwood Receives Award
October 1, 2007
BELLEVUE, Wash. - Greenwood Technologies is among others
being recognized by the 2007 Discover Brilliant international conference held
in Seattle. The wood-fire hydronic furnace company has experienced exceptional
growth over the past 18 months. The Brilliant Innovation Award celebrates
innovative environmental solutions “that go beyond green.” Companies honored at
the Discover Brilliant conference were chosen for their innovation in
mitigating negative environmental effects while providing economic value for
their end users.
Greenwood also received a 2007 International
Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition Innovation Award and the
2006 Vesta Award at the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Expo.
“We’re thrilled to receive this recognition from the
environmental community,” said Michael Kuehner, Greenwood’s vice president of
marketing. “It affirms that our furnaces are being met with enthusiasm, not
just by consumers and retailers, but also by organizations that share our
concern for the environment and locally sustainable solutions.”
Greenwood’s wood-fired furnaces burn wood to heat water for
use in forced-air or hydronic heating systems. The clean-burning system leaves
few particles to create smoke, creosote, or ash, and are up to 85-percent
efficient. The company’s boilers can reduce overall heating costs up to 70
percent, according to a study done by the Canadian government.
