The National Environmental Balancing Bureau donated $10,000 to ASHRAE research during NEBB’s 2013 annual conference May 2 in Montreal.

NEBB’s donation will help fund two research projects, “1245-RP 7.07 69,808 Determine the Effects of Duct Fittings on Air Velocity Measurements, Kansas State U. - Manhattan, KS,” and “Measuring Air-tightness of Mid- and High-rise Non-residential Buildings.”

With the donation, NEBB joins ASHRAE’s Golden Circle. The Golden Circle is made up of investors who have contributed $10,000 or more to ASHRAE research. The investors contributed more than 10% of the total amount of funds collected for research. Universities and other private enterprises conduct these research programs, and the findings are used to update ASHRAE’s standards and guidelines.
