In the category "system innovation" the Dr.-Georg-Triebe-Innovation Award has been passed to Cornelius by the Association of Designers for restaurants, hotels and catering business (VdF).
Cornelius has applied with its energy saving system called "Duette" for use of dispensing carbonated soft drinks. The jury determined that this development is very important for a market of considerable potential for energy savings. Cornelius does not only save natural resources. The company also sensibilizes the agents and decision makers within this market segment for the topics ‘energy efficiency and sustainability'.
