LTG Aktiengesellschaft (Stuttgart) is the winner of this year’s Innovation Award of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. The company, specialized in air conditioning technology, impressed with its unique concept for decentralized, energy-efficient and space-saving ventilation, implemented in the breathing ventilation system PulseVentilation. At yesterday’s award ceremony in Stuttgart, LTG’s CTO Ralf Wagner, who is responsible for R&D at LTG, received the award named after the former Minister of Economic Affairs Rudolf Eberle and endowed with 20,000 Euros.
The jury had to choose from more than 100 applicants this year. Finally, the jurors were impressed by the combination of features of the patent-pending LTG ventilation system. It offers significant advantages in terms of material savings and energy-efficiency and allows completely new modes of operation for the ventilation and temperature control of rooms – it enables a “breathing” building. “The award confirms the innovative strength of our company and the success of our decentralized ventilation strategy,” says Wolf Hartmann, LTG’s CEO. The ventilation system has already been successfully implemented in several projects, for example in office buildings in Stuttgart and Paris, as well as in a concert hall in Latvia. At the end of the year, 900 units are delivered to the new headquarters of the drugstore chain dm in Karlsruhe.
