The National Environmental Balancing Bureau donated $10,000 to ASHRAE research during its annual conference in Orlando, Florida.  

For 17 years, the bureau has been a member of the ASHRAE Golden Circle, a group of contributors who provide financial leadership to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers at the $10,000 level or higher.

NEBB President Jim Kelleher presented the donation to ASHRAE Vice President Patricia Graef, P.E., during the conference’s closing session.

“NEBB’s golf tournament sponsors provide the support to make this donation possible,” Kelleher said. “We are proud to support ASHRAE’s unique technical research program.”

ASHRAE’s Golden Circle investors contribute more than 10 percent of the total amount of funds collected for its research initiatives, officials said.
