The National Environmental Balancing Bureau has given $10,000 to fund ASHRAE research.

The donation was during the NEBB’s annual conference, April 3-5 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. It makes the bureau a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ “golden circle.”

Such donors supply more than 10 percent of the money ASHRAE receives for HVAC research, the NEBB said.
