HOUSTON – Hoover Ferguson’s Liquitote® stainless-steel intermediate bulk container (IBC) earned the distinction of being named a 2019 Environmental Leader Product of the Year winner.

The annual Environmental Leader Awards program, in its seventh year, recognizes the most innovative and successful commercial and industrial products and projects contributing to sustainability across the environment and energy space.

“We are honored to be a recipient of Environmental Leader’s Product of the Year award,” said Arash Hassanian, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Hoover Ferguson. “The judging panel’s recognition of the environmental benefits associated with using Liquitote across various industries, such as chemicals and oil and gas to handle hazardous and non-hazardous liquids, is a testament to the hard work that Hoover Ferguson puts in each day at making it the most reliable and sustainable chemical packaging option available. We are dedicated to supporting environmentally responsible customers who are committed to eliminating single-use plastic from their supply chain.”

Compared to traditional plastic one-way IBCs, Liquitote is manufactured with stainless steel, resulting in a product that is environmentally friendly with a longer life span.

Each year, an independent panel of industry experts judges the entries for the Environmental Leader Product of the Year award. Winners are selected based on the success of the project, the capabilities of the product and the positive effect is has on the industry. The winners were formally recognized and celebrated at the Environmental Leader & Energy Manager Conference on May 14.
