Tamturbo Awarded the Solar Impulse Label for Sustainability

Tamturbo Touch-Free air compressor technology has been awarded the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label for sustainability. The Solar Impulse Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by the visionary Bertrand Piccard who is famous for his two round-the-world flights, recently in a solar-powered airplane and before that non-stop in a balloon. Piccard advocates that environmental protection holds great economic market opportunity.

Solar Impulse labels

Tamturbo Touch-Free air compressor technology has been awarded the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label for sustainability.

The evaluation by the experts of the Solar Impulse Foundation was based on three sections: Feasibility, Environment and Profitability, and Tamturbo Touch-Free technology received top marks on all three areas

The Feasibility evaluation is aimed at determining the technical viability of the solution, ensuring the solution is feasible in the real world. This section is composed of two criteria: credibility and scalability of the concept and it considers the technical requirements of the proposed solution and captures its ability to be credible based on a resilient technology or concept and its potential to be technically scaled up and deployed in the real world without additional constraints. The second criterion in the Feasibility section, scalability, describes whether the manufacturing or distribution of the solution at scale are technically feasible.

The environmental impact -section is aimed at determining the impact of the Solution at the different phases of its lifetime: production, transportation, and distribution, as well as use and disposal phase. This section is composed of one criterion and it considers the potential to enable a direct positive impact on the environment compared to the mainstream alternative identified. The evaluation focuses on the following elements: energy use, CO2 emissions, water use/materials use, air quality, ecosystem preservation. It evaluates if the Solution delivers an incremental environmental benefit versus a mainstream alternative, considering the lifecycle of its value chain.

The Profitability -section is aimed at determining the capacity of a Solution to deliver an economic incentive for the client, as well as to generate profits for the seller in a short term. This section is composed of two criteria and it considers the capacity of a solution to deliver an economic incentive for the client to the mainstream alternative and the capacity of the solution to generate profits for the seller in the short term, regardless of the marketing strategy and the novelty of the product. The first criterion of the profitability describes whether the total cost of ownership of the solution lower compared to the mainstream alternative. The second criterion in the profitability section covers the seller’s profitability and evaluates whether the Solution itself can be profitable for the seller within 5 years, with a sale’s price at which clients would buy it.

The second criterion in the profitability section covers the seller’s profitability and evaluates whether the Solution itself can be profitable for the seller within 5 years, with a sale’s price at which clients would buy it.

All in all, the Efficient Solution Label and the efficiency assessment report of the Solar Impulse Foundation nicely sum up the core benefits that our customers using the Tamturbo Touch-Free™ technology are familiar with already: significant energy and maintenance savings and lowest total cost of ownership.
