Two startup clients of the NYSERDA-sponsored CEBIP clean energy incubator at our supporting member Stony Brook University announced significant recognition for the technologies they are developing:
- ThermoLift, which is developing a novel heat pump for cooling and heating applications, won the 2014 Ultra Light Startups Future Energy Competition held in conjunction with the high-profile ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit in Washington. For more information, see the attached release.
- Sulfcrete, which is developing technology to use waste sulfur from oil and gas refining into a cost-competitive high-performance concrete, won a $150,000 Phase I SBIR award from the National Science Foundation. Sulfcrete, a licensee of Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), plans to use the funding to contract with BNL and Stony Brook University for detailed engineering toward construction of a commercial-scale facility. Sulfcrete is also supported by the NYSERDA Entrepreneur in Residence Program managed by our member High Tech Rochester. For more information, see the attached release.
Those interested in more information on CEBIP should register for our annual meeting, where program director David Hamilton will present.
