10 December 2020
QUEMPIN was recognized for its great contribution to the energy transition in this global competition with the first place.
Having applied among numerous initiatives worldwide, QUEMPIN SpA, a company dedicated to the manufacture of efficient gas burners for bakery ovens, was selected as the best start-up in the World LPG Challenge 2020, a competition of the World LPG Association (WLPGA), obtaining 44% of the jury's votes within the three finalists.
The company was recognized for its contribution to the energy transition through its innovation, a technology based on inert porous media burners for industry, with high energy efficiency, that enables the replacement of firewood by gas, reducing environmental pollution.
Nicolás Becker, CEO of QUEMPIN, commented: "I'm very honored. I have been looking for this particular award for a long time. In 2019, I set the goal that our engineering and innovation would be recognized internationally, because I knew it had potential that needed to be shown to the world, and I think we came to the right place with the WLPGA".
The first place award in this challenge consists of a financial incentive for the company, a trip and stay in Dubai to attend the LPG world forum in 2021, "and most importantly, our innovation is going to be communicated to all the partners of the association, which are LPG companies like Gasco and Abastible", declared Nicolás.
