Bültmann GmbH

The German Environmental Award conferred by the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU) went to Bültmann

With great entrepreneurial courage and a high level of innovative energy, the managing directors of Bültmann and Zenergy Power have succeeded in developing a technology which conjoined energy efficiency and environmental protection with economic advantages. By using for the first time high temperature superconductors in an industrical production line both companies opened a new chapter in technological history.
This excellent example emphasizes the high level of innovation of the German medium-sized companies and the competence of German specialists.
With these words the Secretary General Dr. Fritz Brickwedde of DBU praised the award-winners Petra Bültmann-Steffin (39), managing director of Bültmann company (Neuenrade), and Dr. Carsten Bührer (39), managing director of Zenergy Power (Rheinbach). The award was presented to the recipients by German Federal President Horst Köhler at a ceremony in Augsburg on 25 October 2009.
