A new award for Epta, as it wins the first edition of Eco Conception Aquitania. The event was organised by CCI Landes (Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Landes) to reward the most innovative solutions designed and produced in France and, in particular, Aquitania, that succeed in combining style, functionality, ergonomics and durability.

Once again the champion is REV Up Technology and, specifically the total glass vertical cabinet Skyview for Bonnet Névé and Granvista for Costan, which has already been awarded a Janus de l’Industrie Eco Design mention. The solution responds perfectly to the principle of eco-design, which is the essence of the project: the use of composite materials guarantees more recycling and ensures a 60% reduction in water consumption during the production phase.

Central to the design of the cabinet is consideration of the trio product/market/Customers, with the aim of modifying the existing paradigm and offering a cabinet with an exclusive style, which also stimulates purchases and responds effectively to the need for Retailers to save energy. In this regard, SkyView/GranVista has LED illumination, low-consumption fans and greater thermal insulation (+30%), for a lower energy consumption within the retail outlet (-50%) compared to traditional open cabinets.
Finally, Epta invested in an LCA (Product Life Cycle Analysis) simulator to quantify the actual impact of the solution on the environment. The software was produced thanks to the contribution of ADEME (Agence de l’environnement et de la maîtrise de l’énergie) and the combined commitment of Epta France’s R&D Team based in Hendaye and the international organisation QUANTIS. The data shows that SkyView/GranVista creates a 49.5% reduction in carbon footprint compared to traditional open cabinets, with a resulting reduction in CO2 emissions of 7831 Kg, which corresponds to 42 return plane journeys between Paris and London.
