KUDOS to Adam Korngold
Waves Car Wash Awarded EPA Environmental Merit Award
The New England Office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) honored Adam Korngold’s Waves Car Wash in West Roxbury, MA, with an Environmental Merit Award. The award was presented at a special ceremony at Faneuil Hall in Boston on Wednesday, May 11, 2011. Adam, who is the current Vice President of the New England Carwash Association (NECA) was a guest of honor at the event, and his family, friends and colleagues attended to celebrate this honor.
Waves Car Wash was honored in recognition of its exceptional work and commitment to the environment in 2010. The facility, nominated by a customer at the car wash, was chosen for its significant contributions toward preserving and protecting our natural resources. It was noted during the ceremony that Waves Car Wash is not only an environmentally friendly business but also works to educate the public on ways to conserve natural resources. It was cited as an example of a local business that has chosen to embrace green technology and practice responsible environmental stewardship.
Owner Adam Korngold was applauded for his strong environmental ethic and commitment to promoting the use of green technology. For example, Wave Car Wash installed a $220,000 PV system to generate 20% of its electrical needs and celebrated going green by hosting an environmental fair to demonstrate the PV technology. They also use energy efficient motors tied to Variable Frequency Drives, a water reclamation system that significantly reduces water consumption, and have installed LED lights throughout the facility.
The members and leadership of NECA are very proud to have Adam Korngold as their Vice President.
