Cleveland Biotech has been named winner of the Field Service Innovation of the Year award at the 2008 Cooling Industry Awards. The accolade was given for the company’s Amnite L600 FridgeFree product, which is a biological solution for clearing gel build-up in the drains of commercial refrigeration units.

“The awards recognise the achievements of companies pushing the boundaries of environmentally focused refrigeration and air conditioning,” commented Cleveland Biotech’s managing director Ben Hoskyns.

Judges called the offending gel “one of the nastiest substances that you will come across in the refrigeration sector” and said Cleveland’s FridgeFree a solution that “frees up the engineer to fix refrigeration systems, not clear drains”. The solution works by disrupting the formulation of the gel-like substance.

Cleveland Biotech provide natural solutions to the growing problems of pollution including those arising from the discharge of effluents and wastes into the environment.
