The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) selected the Trane CenTraVac to receive its Best-of-the-Best Award for Superior Environmental Performance of Centrifugal Chillers. This award honors winners of EPA’s annual Stratospheric Protection Awards from 1990 to 2007.
Trane states that CenTraVac is the world’s most energy-efficient large chilled water system, supplying cooled air for occupants and residents of some of the largest office towers, manufacturing facilities, universities and other multi-use buildings worldwide. Its 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 CenTraVac’s contribution to the protection of the ozone layer and to the control of climate change. EPA said: “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.”
Trane qualified for the Best-of-the-Best award by winning the Stratospheric Ozone Protection award in 1992.
