The electrical discharge plasma process has the potential to inhibit foot spoilage and increase liquid food shelf life thereby reducing food waste and preventing the formation of greenhouse gases.
This technology has the potential to be an improvement of the current wind turbine gearbox lubricants by reducing wear.
This technology has the potential to improve current commercial water filtration membranes by reducing effects of fouling.
This technical application of induction heating and furnace tempering has the potential to improve the mechanical properties of A36, 4130, and 4140 steel compared to normal furnace annealing and also reduce energy requirements.
Locust Hill Country Club, located in Pittsford, NY is one of 30 out of 933 golf course that have achieved certification by Audubon International as Cooperative Sanctuaries, a program for golf courses that demonstrate their commitment to the environment by meeting standards for protecting water quality, conserving natural resources, and providing wildlife habitats. One of the gaps identified by Audubon International in Locust Hill's operations is the lawn mower washing, in which wastewater from the washing is sent through an underground tank and discharged into a town-approved wooded area nearby. This overflow sometimes creates undesirable odor problems. NYSP2I worked with Locust Hill to evaluate opportunities to reduce water use and recycle water from the mower cleaning operations.
EcoCeramics, Inc. (EcoCeramics) located in Rensselaer, New York is developing a high-performance masonry active building product: EcoCeramics Envelope System (EES). EcoCeramics requested assistance from New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) to evaluate the performance of their EES as compared to an existing building envelope and an ASHARE Curtain Wall, using analytical models and experimental testing for validation.
Located in Huntington Station on Long Island, E.C. Sumereau & Son (Sumereau) specializes in providing speciality platings and anodizing for military, aerospace, and electronics industries. The company caters to a wide range of precision-based applications, which include plating for prototype development. Sumereau generates wastewater, which is primarily comprised of rinse water from the various metal finishing operations. Sumereau wanted to explore opportunities to reduce the amount of hazardous waste generated along with the costs associated with managing and disposal of the waste.
A paper manufacturer located in the north country of New York State currently uses 300,000 pounds per year of hypochlorite chemicals. This is used to remove the color in their process water a cost of approximately $500,000 per year, and around 40,000 pounds per year of sodium bisulfite at $34,000 per year to remove residual chlorine in the water prior to discharge. The paper manufacturer watned to identify the most cost-effective method to both remove color from their process water and reduce the need for toxic and hazardous chemicals.
Gorbel is a manufacturer of overhead material handling, ergonomic lifting, and fall protection systems for use in a wide variety of industrial and manufacturing environments. Gorbel's handling systems are used to lift and transport heavy loads in a wide range of industries, like automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, and more. Gorbel sought to explore alternative surface treatment methods and technolgies that could maintain the effectiveness and efficiency of the current spray process while reducing its physical, economic and environmental footprint, mitgating exposure risks, and creating less waste.
Stefan Sydor Optics (Sydor) is a precision manufacturer of custom flat-surfaced, parallel and wedged optics specializing in double-sided polishing, continuous pad & pitch polising, CNC machining and laser machining. A critical process material used in their operations is a polishing compound that contains cerium oxide or "ceria", which is expensive. Sydor wanted to investigate options to reduce the amount of ceria lost to the sewer and increase the recovery rate.
