The County of Västernorrland`s Environment Award to STT Emtec


The County Council of Västernorrland gives every second year a company or person an award for environmental work. The Environment Award for 2005 was given to STT Emtec AB for its work involving hi-tech knowledge, the advance of technology in the interest of the environment. Read the jury`s grounds.

"A child`s lungs can be damaged by relatively low levels of airborne pollutants. This damage is lifelong. A recent study of roughly 2,000 children who were monitored between the ages of 10 and 18, the period when a person`s lungs finish developing, and the children were exposed to varying degrees of air pollution in California. The results showed that 18-year olds from the most polluted areas of Los Angeles had only 80 percent of normal lung capacity.

Of the young people who grew up in cleaner areas only 1.6 percent suffered from reduced lung capacity. “Most surprising is that you can see a clear impact at relatively low levels of air pollution,” says Göran Pershagen, professor at the Institution of Environmental Health Medicine in Stockholm. The primary source of these pollutants is vehicle emissions and the worst place in Sweden is along Hornsgatan in central Stockholm.

This is a complex problem but it has great significance, and a decisive importance for people`s health and for sustainable development.

This means there is an overall responsibility for all public authorities who concerned with the environment and public health.

Presentation the company and award-winner:

STT Emtec AB is located in the county of Västernorrland, more specifically in the city of Sundsvall. Since 1981 the company has focused on the development of emission control systems as well as means to improve engine performance. The company currently employs 45 and it`s customers and commissions come from Sweden, elsewhere in Europe as well as Asia, Australia, and North and South America.

In other words, STT Emtec has lengthy experience in the development of high-tech products originating from its own research and development department. The R&D efforts have resulted in substantially lower emission levels as well as noticeable improvements in performance for both diesel and petrol engines.

In Sweden, diesel-powered private cars equipped with a particle filter can be eligible for a tax reduction as early as the coming summer. There is an interest in creating a special environmental category for diesel-powered cars with some type of particle filter. In addition, intensive efforts are underway within the EU to deal with this matter.

Since 1994 the County Council of Västernorrland has awarded an environmental prize for meritorious undertakings in fields such as the cultural environment, environmental undertakings at the school level and environmental engineering. This is the seventh time the Council has presented the award.

It is a great honour to present the County of Västernorrland`s Environment Award for 2005 to STT Emtec AB for its valuable contributions. The award consists of a check for SEK 25,000, a statuette by renowned Swedish artist Lars Widenfalk and a diploma with the jury`s grounds:

- for its work involving hi-tech knowledge, the advance of technology in the interest of the environment, good public health and regional growth."
