SorTech Awarded Quality Seal for Research and Development

(PresseBox) (Halle (Saale) , ) In May 2014, the prestigious Founders of German Science Association ‘Stifterverband der Deutschen Wirtschaft’ honored SorTech AG for its decade-long research work by awarding the company its quality seal ‘Innovativ durch Forschung’. This marked the first time that companies were recognized for their research, and as a consequence, for the special responsibility they assume for our society and the country. SorTech AG is proud to have been chosen as one of the first companies in Germany to receive this significant distinction.

Since 2002 research and development are at the core of the adsorption chiller pioneer’s activities. Based on its own ideas along with the requirements of its customers, SorTech develops and manufactures innovative, energy efficient and patented solutions for the generation and storage of cold and heat – anywhere where there is need for refrigeration and excess heat is available.

At SorTech, we take ideas and turn them into innovation …

“Innovation is of great importance for our company and for the competitive business location Germany. It is the driving force for economic growth and brings with it progress through constant improvement. A brilliant idea is important for the success of a company; however, its successful execution is equally crucial! This is the only way innovation increases SorTech’s competitiveness,” states Norbert Philipp, CEO of SorTech AG.

Promoting Science and Education

The Stifterverband is a business community initiative advocating long-term improvement of the German education and research landscape. In order to achieve this goal, the Stifterverband provides funding for universities and research institutes, supports talents, analyses the higher education system, and devises recommendations for policymakers and business.

The Stifterverband covers 3,000 businesses, trade associations, foundations and private individuals. Together, they form one of Germany’s biggest private academic patrons. Virtually all major German corporate groups are involved on the executive board and other committees – as are SME-owners and representatives from scientific institutions.

The Stifterverband exclusively finances its non-for-profit activities through the contributions and donations from its members and patrons. It is thanks to this fully private funding, that the Stifterverband is independent and able to act in a flexible, non-bureaucratic manner free of any government regulations. This facilitates the completion of projects which would otherwise be unlikely to find public sponsors.

Sortech AG

SorTech AG has been a developer and manufacturer for more than ten years of energy efficient and very high-output chillers for low and medium cooling requirements. Cold is not generated with electric power but low-temperature excess heat and thus curbs both operating costs and worldwide CO2 emissions. Adsorption chillers – in combination with solar-thermal systems, local and district heating station, CHPs and industrial waste heat – are ideally suited for cooling, technical processes as well as single- and multi-family dwellings. More than 400 SorTech systems are already operational worldwide.
