Headworks Nominated For Innovation In Green Engineering

June 6, 2008

The Headworks® Inc. team of engineers has been nominated for the prestigious 2008 “Idea*Ation” award in the Clean/Green Technology and Environment category for their ingenuity developing their X-tractor unit. Finalists are chosen based on ingenious ideas and strategies conceived from Houston Businesses.

The Headworks X-tractor was a finalist in this competition based on its merits as a solution to more thorough screening techniques by compacting water from soluble waste material for more efficient disposal. The X-Tractor is superior to its competitors because of features such as the bolted, rather than welded spiral unit, and accessible trough design allows for easy maintenance.

The Idea*Ation Award

A panel of distinguished judges chose from innovations that have improved products, processes and/or services in the 10-county metro area within the last 10 years. Winners were selected in 12 categories by The Houston Business Journal, Sterling Bank, Oracle, Jones Graduate School of Management at Rice University, the Jones Partners and Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship, the sponsors of this program. Headworks was honored at a special awards ceremony during a four day Celebrate!Enterprise event created to honor creators of ingenious products and services, which took place May 14, 2008 in Houston.

Michele LaNoue, President of Headworks said of the prestigious award “We are all very proud of our engineering team and congratulate them for this acknowledgement of their ingenuity!”
