DAVIDSON, N.C. — Ingersoll Rand announced that it received three Product and Project of the Year awards from Environmental Leader at the fifth annual Environmental Leader Conference in Denver.

The company received the awards for its Thermo King truck and trailer refrigeration units in Europe using R-452A, Trane Sintesis™ air-cooled chiller, and Trane Series E™ CenTraVac water-cooled chiller (known in the United States and Canadian markets as models CVHH/CDHH). These products are part of Ingersoll Rand’s EcoWise™ portfolio, signifying they are designed to lower environmental impact with next-generation, low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants and high efficiency operation.

“We designed these products with the future in mind and recognized early on that our customers expect solutions with low-GWP refrigerants to mitigate their environmental impacts,” said W. Scott Tew, executive director, Center for Energy Efficiency & Sustainability (CEES) at Ingersoll Rand. “Ingersoll Rand is committed to bringing our customers efficiency, reliability, and sustainability in everything we do and recognition such as this reaffirms that we are leading the way to a better, more sustainable future.”

Judges of the Environmental Leader Awards applauded each product for their sustainable refrigerant features, ability to be used in existing equipment, and innovative design. The Environmental Leader Awards are presented to products and projects with exemplary environmental sustainability attributes.

“Each year since the inception of the Environmental Leader Product and Project Awards program, the range and quality of the entries has risen. With the bar set high, the pool of 2016 entrants did not disappoint,” said Peter Bussey, research analyst with LNS Research and judging coordinator for the Product & Project Awards. “The community of providers continues to address the rising demand for cost-effective solutions to address complex environmental, sustainability, and energy management challenges. And end-user organizations are becoming more creative in applying the available solutions to get real results.”

George Wan, vice president of Engineering and Technology at Thermo King; Roger Hubert, sales leader at Trane; and Debbie Kalish, program manager at Ingersoll Rand accepted the awards on behalf of Ingersoll Rand.
