The nominating institution EagleBurgmann on the breakthrough:

With two product innovations a significant source of direct natural gas emission at gas compression can be eliminated: Leakage of the shaft seals and venting of the casings of centrifugal compressors. The saving potential sums up to more than 20 million t/a CO2e in 2040 based on current deliveries of EagleBurgmann, even much higher than today’s footprint of the entire Freudenberg Group. Considering retrofitting of compressors in the industry shows an even higher saving potential.
