Sen. Joe Robach, second from right, poses with members of RIT’s team in the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute’s first-annual Greening Your Campus competition. RIT’s Team Powers addressed greenhouse-gas emissions and mercury releases as a direct result of RIT’s electricity purchases. The team, which placed second, consists of students Nikhil Kale, left; Steven Barber, second from left; Ayham Haddad, right; and faculty/staff advisor Chance Glenn (not pictured). Clarkson University took first place and University at Buffalo took third place. Students were presented awards at a ceremony in Albany after exhibiting their projects.

As part of its Research and Development Program, the Pollution Prevention Institute had developed a student competition in which teams must identify a specific activity at their university with a high environmental footprint and define a solution for lowering the impact.
