Emerson, St. Louis, Missouri, announced it has completed the purchase of 7AC Technologies, Inc., a Beverly, Massachusetts-based technology startup whose air conditioning technology enables energy savings and sustainable air management. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Emerson said it has been collaborating with 7AC to “commercialize a new technology that enables customers such as commercial building owners and retailers to achieve desired relative humidity and temperature in a single step. The membrane-based liquid desiccant technology is flexible, fully modular and can be incorporated into various applications.”
“With liquid desiccant technology, 7AC provides a one-step solution that demonstrates better energy efficiency and air quality than current best-in-class products,” said Jamie Froedge, executive president of Emerson’s commercial and residential solutions business. “In response to customer needs, industry regulations and new building codes, commercial building owners can leverage this technology to easily manage the humidity, temperature, purity, and distribution of air.”
