Green Technology Accelerator Center

Our technology commercialization and new product experts can help accelerate the commercialization of your company’s green product or technology. If your company has developed a working prototype for a new product or process that offers an advantage in terms of its impacts to the environment, we can address a variety of technical challenges, provide key verifications required by investors and provide information to accelerate your product to market.

Typical projects with NYS companies can involve one or more of the following:

  • Independent, third-party product testing & evaluation
  • Competitive product benchmarking
  • Life Cycle Assessments
  • Environment and Energy Impact Evaluation
  • Market Viability Assessments

Anywhere from 50 to 90 percent of the cost of the project is funded by NYS to help offset your costs associated with introducing your product to the market. Contact us to learn more.

What is Life Cycle Assessment

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a tool used in the field of industrial ecology to evaluate the environmental impacts of products or processes over their entire life cycle – from raw material extraction to manufacturing to use and end-of-life management. Studies have shown that decisions made early in the design process can be responsible for a majority of a product’s life cycle environmental impact. Through LCA, P2I can help your design team take a holistic view of the product or process to avoid burden shifting from one life cycle stage or impact category to another. Expert technical staff within NYSP2I are certified by the American Center for Life Cycle Assessment.
