Fluitec Awarded The “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label
Founded by the visionary Bertrand Piccard, The Solar Impulse Foundation serves a dedicated mission to balance global economic growth with environment sustainability. The Foundation generates innovative challenges of forward-thinking initiatives that are not only practical for the industrial marketplace but also function for a better environment.
With this mission in mind, the Solar Impulse Foundation created their “1000 Solutions Challenge.” In this program, the ‘solutions’ or products, submitted by companies must meet the foundation’s rigorous mission criteria of profitability, market usage and positive ecological impact. Since the launch of the Label in May 2018, only 321 clean, efficient, and profitable technologies have received the award so far.
Fluitec, with their approach of building innovative technologies in the lubricant and hydraulic space, has been awarded the coveted label. Fluitec has essentially created cost-efficient products that systematically reduce power-usage and lubricant consumption downward thus significantly lowering CO2 emissions and reducing wastes. Fluitec’s products have become integrated into power generation, oil & gas and manufacturing facilities across a wide spectrum of industries.
Fluitec is deeply honored to be recognized by the Solar Impulse Foundation. With their ‘1000 Solutions Challenge’, we embraced their pioneering spirit and are proud of their recognition for our “Fill4Life” vision.
