Located in Rochester, New York R-Display & Lighting, LLC's mission is to leverage core expertise in Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology which has penetrated smart phone/mobile device markets with great success. R-Display & Lighting requested an evaluation of their emitter materials to help validate their claims of improved energy efficiency and product performance.
Brooklyn Brewery is a regional craft brewery with a facility in Williamsburg that produces over 50k barrels annually. The brewery produces its wide variety of beers in a repurposed building with all LED lighting demonstrating a commitment to sustainability. In continuation of their commitment to sustainability, Brooklyn Brewery would like to reduce the amount of water and energy used in the beer production process.
One World Clean Energy (OWCE) was formed in 2006 with the mission of providing affordable sustainable energy anywhere in the world by integrating small scale waste processing and energy technologies into communities, enabling them to improve living standards and power their communities through the use of the OWCE gasification system.
The objective of this project was to provide OWCE with a system simulation of their gasification process, optimizing the operating parameters from a defined baseline. The simulation will be used to optimize the design of OWCE’s pilot gasification system for implementation at a municipal solid waste (MSW) transfer station in upstate New York.
Actasys was founded in 2013, developing active flow control to improve the aerodynamic performance of ground transportation vehicles. Actasys focuses specifically on the development and commercialization of their groundbreaking Synthetic Jet-based flow control technology, emerging from the aerospace industry.
Actasys is developing a system retrofit technology for Class 8 trucks that has the potential to significantly impact the trucking industry. Actasys requested NYSP2I and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) to test new system configurations and actuation methods of its product, quantifying the energy & environmental impact of their Synthetic Jet-based Flow Control System as applied to tractor-trailers.
Highview Power Storage, Inc. (Highview) (Brooklyn, NY) is a clean energy company providing large-scale energy storage systems utilizing Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES) technology. The LAES system is capable of storing electrical energy in the form of compressed and liquefied air as a means to bulk-shift renewable energy from off-peak to times of peak energy demand. Highview requested New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) to evaluate the potential energy and green house gas (GHG) emissions reduction with implementation of their LAES systems in New York State (NYS).
Curran Renewable Energy, LLC (Curran) was established in 2009 with a focus on renewable biofuel, building on their experience in the timber industry. Curran extrudes sawdust from the process into pellets using pure compression and no additives. The manufacturing process utilizes a high efficiency furnace which generates 7-10 tons of kiln wood ash per week. To manage this excess amount of kiln wood ash, Curran is currently land applying the wood ash as a
fertilizer and soil amendment. Curran requested assistance from New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) to analyze the chemical characteristics of the kiln wood ash and assist in exploring potential market applications.
Tompkins Metal Finishing (Tompkins) is a metal fnishing company located in Batavia, New York. With over 60 years in the industry, Tompkins is one of the largest industrial metal platng companies in the Western NY area. Metal fnishing is one of the most water-intensive manufacturing actvites that exists today. To address these concerns, Tompkins sought to implement opportunites to reduce processwater consumpton, reuse and recycle process water that is consumed, and mitgate the severity of chemical contaminaton of process water.
Manufacturing electronics and their components is a water-intesive process. During full production a western New York facility uses approximately 25,000-35,000 gallons of water per day; a rate of consumption that exceeds ten million gallons over the course of a year. Because most of this water is used for process baths and does not become embodied within the product, such high consumption inherently creates high levels of wastewater generation. This electronics manufacturer sought to explore opportunities to reduce the volume of water consumed in their manufacturing process, and thereby simultaneously mitigate the costs and liabilities of waste and wastewater generation and treatment.
New Pig, located in Tipton, Pennsylvania, is a manufacturer and distributor of industrial products to absorb, contain, and clean up leaks, drips, splatters and spills. New Pig has a long history of environmental stewardship. To continue to improve and broaden its product oﬀering, New Pig has developed the Pig® Grippy® Floor Mat, believed to be a more environmentally friendly product compared to a rental mat, commonly used at public building entrances to absorb water and remove dirt and debris from shoes when entering the building. New Pig requested that the Golisano Institute for Sustainability (GIS) at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) scientifically study the life cycle environmental impacts of the Pig® Grippy® Floor Mat and quantify its environmental footprint via Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as compared to a conventional rental mat.
