On 28th of November 2017 ECOLAB’s Textile Care Division Austria was recognized as a valuable advisor that makes a significant contribution in reducing CO2 Emissions in the context of klimaaktiv, a climate protection initiative of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management. The award was granted for the BlueOcean water filtration and energy saving solution, installed at Salesianer Miettex GmbH plant in Inzing (www.salesianer.com). Since 2004, klimaaktiv has been covering all key technology areas of sustainable energy use with the topics "Construction & Renovation", "Energy Saving", "Renewable Energy" and "Mobility". klimaaktiv serves as a platform for initiatives by companies, countries and communities, organizations and private individuals.

“We are really happy to receive this recognition with the innovative solution that helps to fight one of the world’s biggest challenges – abundant water and energy for everybody”, said Ferry Bagherpur, Cluster Division Manager of Ecolab in Austria. “BlueOcean system allows reducing energy and water costs for the commercial laundries by recovering up to 15m3 of water per hour. This is one of the most efficient and reliable systems to recycle water in the commercial laundries”. 

Austrian Federal Minister Andrä Rupprechter emphasized: "These companies are a driving force for the energy transition. Through energy-efficient production, they reduce the energy requirements of their operations and thus not only protect the environment, but also save costs. In the long term, environmentally friendly companies have a competitive advantage that should not be underestimated" (source: https://www.klimaaktiv.at/service/presse/2017/eekonf17.html, 04.12.2017).

The award ceremony has been hosted as a part of Efficient Energy Conference organized by WEKA Industrie Medien and sponsored by Austrian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, Austrian Energy Agency and several industrial partners.
