    SinBerBEST PI's Research Included in Sembcorp-NUS Corporate Laboratory

    Sembcorp-National University of Singapore (NUS) Corporate Laboratory has incorporated a SinBerBEST Principal Investigator's, Sanjib Panda's, research on "Predictive Maintenance of Power Plants" at the Jurong Island as an area of emphasis for the lab. This lab is the sixth Corporate Laboratory at NUS supported by the National Research Foundation. It will focus on developing cutting-edge and cost-effective technologies in power generation, industrial wastewater treatment and reuse, as well as waste-to-resource conversion.

    Nelumbo Wins Berkeley Cleantech University Prize

    Nelumbo has developed an omniphobic nanocoating which accelerates water shedding and reduces contaminant build-up on surfaces. We are using our OMNIPHOBE coating in air conditioning systems to raise efficiency by up to 25%. Our coating is 200X thinner than a human hair, conducts heat, and adds less than 2% to the manufacturing cost of an AC unit, allowing for cost-effective universal application on any scale or geometry.

    SinBerBEST Technology Energy Assessment Published

    The Energy Assessment Report details the creation of a whole building energy model to represent a typical large commercial office building in Singapore which meets Green Mark Certified Level version 4.0 energy requirements. This model allows us to look at results related to energy consumption in detail. The main purpose of this whole building energy model is to provide a reference for SinBerBEST researchers to estimate the potential energy savings for a particular tecnology, and to easily compare to other research results.
