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.
Located in New Paltz, New York, BioSand Bag Filter, LLC. (BioSand) has created a cost effective water filtration system that is both environmentally and consumer friendly, called the P3 BioSand Bag Filter. BioSand requested NYSP2I to independently evaluate the water filtration effectiveness of their BioSand Bag Filter System, and to assess the product setup and procedures from a user's point of view.
The work performed by NYSP2I resulted in key findings that will assist BioSand in further developing and commercializing their system, utilizing product manufacturing in New York State.
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.
