Danfoss is currently accepting entries for its ninth annual EnVisioneer of the Year Award competition.

Launched in 2010, the competition recognizes North American original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), building owners, municipalities, contractors, and endusers that have introduced a new product, opened a new facility, or invested in a building or system upgrade in the past 18 months using Danfoss products or solutions to realize significant energy and environmental savings.

Interested participants may enter the competition by submitting an application by June 1, 2018. Applications will be reviewed and selected by a panel of third-party judges representing various disciplines.

Last year, Danfoss presented the EnVisioneer of the Year Award to Welbilt’s brand Delfield, a custom stainless-steel refrigeration equipment manufacturer. Delfield used Danfoss thermostatic expansion valves and electronic controls to optimize its foodservice refrigeration equipment. By integrating these Danfoss technologies, Delfield converted its portfolio from R-404A, an HFC refrigerant, to R-290, a natural hydrocarbon — reducing global warming potential by more than 99%, from 3,943 to 3. It also was able to lower refrigerant charge and cut energy consumption by as much as 50%
