ALBUQUERQUE, NM, — The National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) donated $10,000 to ASHRAE research at the 2016 NEBB Annual Conference, held April 14-16 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. For 16 years, NEBB has been a member of the ASHRAE Golden Circle, a group of contributors who provide significant financial leadership to ASHRAE at the $10,000 and higher level.
NEBB President Jean-Paul Leblanc presented the donation to James Vallort, ASHRAE Vice President, during the plenary session of the NEBB conference. “We are pleased to continue a tradition that has now raised $160,000 from NEBB toward ASHRAE research,” remarked Leblanc.
Through its research and other initiatives, ASHRAE is recognized as the leading international authority and source of technical and educational information, standards and guides on the interaction between people and the indoor and outdoor environment as it pertains to the operation of HVAC&R systems in buildings and other applications.
“ASHRAE’s current research strategy centers on sustainability and maximizing resources while minimizing the impact on the environment. This goal is very consistent with NEBB’s mission and the work performed by our certified firms and professionals,” said Leblanc.
ASHRAE Golden Circle investors contribute more than 10% of the total amount of funds collected for the society’s research initiatives.
