Accell wins award at national fair

Accell Solutions, a multinational company in the sector of solutions for water, gas and smart solutions, with unit in Jardim Boer, in Americana, was awarded the prize for best governance strategy in the launching of lead-free water meters at Fenasan (National Fair of Sanitation and Environment), held between September 13 and 15, at Expo Center Norte, in São Paulo.

The event brought together more than 250 exhibitors and awarded three companies in each ESG category, which stands for environmental, social, and governance strategy applications.



The winners were audited by the AESABESP (Associação dos Engenheiros da Sabesp) commission - organizer of Fenasan - through documents referring to planning, projects, and governance applications.

"This award is recognition for all the effort, dedication, commitment of each and every one of Accell's employees and crowns all the struggle we are facing, but also reaffirms that we are on the right track. So I thank all the employees, customers, suppliers and partners who continue working together with Accell", says Fernando Souza, president of the multinational company, which also has units in Mexico and Argentina.

 The water meters that earned Accell the award are made of the new metallic alloy called ecoCAZt, which complies with the ordinances 888, from the Ministry of Health, and 155, from the Ministry of Economy, as well as the NSF61 standard (North-American) that deals with drinking water contamination due to contact with the components of these meters.

The metal alloy ecoCAZt has a lead-free chemical composition, as well as mechanical properties superior to bronzes and brasses, commonly used in the production of these hydrometers.

  In humans, lead accumulation in the body can severely affect brain, blood, kidney, digestive and reproductive system functions, including the possibility of producing genetic mutations in offspring.

Promising Future

Accell aims to follow global governance processes for research and development projects for products in the sanitation area and to mitigate the growth and indiscriminate use of bronzes in bearings, hydrometers, valves, and copper by-products with a high level of pollution.

With this, the company eliminates the harm caused to health by lead, since any manufacturer that uses copper-based metal alloys, whether bronze or brass, is obliged to use this element. "Our goal is to change this," emphasizes Fernando Souza. 

More than 75 years of experience

Accell has the know-how of more than 75 years in the development of solutions that combine technology, ease of use and savings of natural resources. Considering that the multinational's main activity is related to the water segment, its objective is conscious consumption and intelligent commercial and operational management of losses.

In 10 years, Accell wants to be seen as a company that has made the world a connected, conscious and sustainable environment through the acceleration of eco-technologies and smart management of natural resources, as well as a pioneer in manufacturing lead-free metal alloy products in the world market.
