The National Environmental Balancing Bureau recently donated $10,000 to ASHRAE research. The donation was made April 5 at the 2014 NEBB Annual Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

The donation makes NEBB part of the ASHRAE Golden Circle, which is made up of investors who contribut $10,000 or more to ASHRAE research. NEBB’s donation will help ASHRAE research to further high performance HVACR technologies which result in improved standards and guidelines.

Golden Circle investors contribute 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. ASHRAE’s guidelines then serve as a benchmark and help educate and promote uniform testing, ratings, and safe practices throughout the entire HVACR industry.
