Carbotainer, the Spanish manufacturer of carbon cylinders, has been recognised by three prestigious awarding bodies for innovation, value generation and revolutionising cylinder manufacturing.

Carbotainer has obtained recognition from the Spanish Ministry of Economy for its innovative business and for developing the ‘Smart Carbon Cylinder’ (SCC) project. The company has thereby obtained the right to use the INNOVATIVE SME label that recognises its activity in the field of R&D.

This seal will strengthen the company’s lines of business and will help the company profit from both public resources and private investors.

In addition to this award, Carbotainer was a finalist in the 2016 CEL Awards by the Spanish Logistics Centre for its Smart Cylinder project.

These are the most prestigious awards in the field of logistics, honouring those companies with the greatest achievements in supply chain management and the use of logistics for value generation.

Carbotainer was runner-up, in close competition with Desigual, the final winner. The jury outlined the efforts of both companies, stressing Carbotainer’s innovation in a very traditional sector, the distribution of compressed gases.

Last but not least, Carbotainer has been nominated for the Innovation category of the Ibercaja Awards ‘Aragon, Company and Future’, for its R&D work manufacturing a revolutionary cylinder.
