Solutions now lead the way in the compressor market. The manufacturer seeks to satisfy the challenges of the customer with novel and ever more complex equipment. As a result of this there has to be a real partnership between the manufacturer and the customer. The need to innovate is seen as the way to ensure a high level of compressed air efficiency and reliability.
Much effort has been put into meeting the environmental challenges as well as those in the all important quest for improved energy efficiency. On the environmental front the industry seeks to ensure that sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.
As part of the need for improved energy efficiency control solutions maximize the efficiency, save costs and ease operation of a customer's compressed air equipment. This with improved electric motor drives help to contribute to lower overall running costs.
As the need for compressed air becomes more refined, the solutions used to satisfy the demand have resulted in a broader range of compressor technologies being offered. Where once the reciprocating compressor reigned supreme its position as the mainstream solution has been taken over by the screw compressor to provide the industrial 'work horse' for compressed air supply. But the screw compressor has not taken over as an exclusive technology many alternatives have been introduced to fill niche areas including the reciprocating compressor. The customer now has the widest range of options open to meet the challenge and provide the solution.
The industrial landscape that is the market for compressed air has changed not only in the EU member states but also in the EU as a whole. Where there was once heavy industry and mining that in some parts of the EU has given way to light and high technology industry. That brings with it the demand for improved compressed air and more flexibility.

Sustainability projects and low carbon initiates need compressed air, gas and vacuum equipment
Increasing concern about the environment and the need to foster energy efficiency are addressed by the European Climate Change Programme and its subsequent legislative measures. Pneurop supports the overall sustainable energy policy objectives of the European Union within the sphere of its responsibilities. Its members companies actively promote energy efficiency for the benefit of their customers as part of their daily business activity.
