Georgetown, DE (PRWEB) September 01, 2011
Senator Thomas R. Carper (Democrat, Delaware) visited Xergy Inc. facilities on North Race Street on Monday August 29th, 2011 as part of a larger visit to Sussex County organized by his Sussex County Regional Director (Karen McGrath). Senator Carper is a strong proponent of advanced technology solutions that both create value and enhance the environment. He is also keen to promote new ventures that can bring high value jobs to Delaware. Xergy Inc. a high technology company based in Georgetown Delaware that was recently selected as one of five winners of GE’s ecomagination global innovation award.
Bamdad Bahar, co-founder and inventor of Xergy’s technology met Senator Carper and provided additional information about the company’s efforts. He commented that “ it was truly an honor to have Senator Carper visit our facilities and take the time out to learn more about our technology.
We are proud to be creating new high technology jobs here in Georgetown. Quite frankly without an incredible business community in Delaware, it would have been impossible to get this far. First of all Delaware is home to the global leaders in the solid state ion exchange membrane technology with Dupont, Gore, and Ion-Power all based there. Secondly, it is also home to the University of Delaware that has one of the leading Chemical Engineering Departments in the world. It is astounding that we were able to access renowned Professors like Stanley Sandler with a simple phone call and ended up very quickly conducting very complex thermodynamic modeling that supported our development. It is important to note too, that without the opportunities afforded to us by many local companies, who strongly believe in supporting local communities, we simply would not have been able to devote the resources to bring our inventions to this stage. The Delaware Economic Development Office was instrumental in assisting us with permitting for our labs; and our local community bank, County Bank of Rehoboth has been pivotal with further assistance to accelerate our programs. In truth, this really is a tribute not to us, but to the whole commercial infrastructure in Delaware. We hope to be able to place Delaware on the leading edge of a new global industrial revolution creating a sustainable future for our planet and transforming how the world creates, connects to and uses energy.”
Xergy Inc was founded in 2009 to commercialize a series of patents based on “electrochemical compression” to launch a new class of clean, green compressors for the refrigeration and cooling industry. Xergy’s technology is based on utilizing electrochemical compression of clean non-GHG (non-Green-House-Gas) depleting refrigerants. This technology provides for highly-efficient, noiseless, vibration free, modular and scalable Cooling Systems. This technology is potentially transformational and disruptive for the conventional refrigeration industry. It uses stable and well-understood technology from the Fuel-cell industry in a novel fashion that simply uses electricity to produce refrigeration without the need for motors or polluting refrigerants. Devices utilizing this technology could be deployed in any number of commercial, residential and automotive applications in a cost-effective, efficient and planet-friendly manner. It leverages existing proton-exchange-membrane technology with hydrogen’s excellent thermodynamic characteristics and ability to co-exist with other fluids, to operate a clean and efficient refrigeration cycle. Xergy expects to deliver commercial prototypes of its products to a number of fortune 500 companies for different refrigeration applications within the next 12 months or so.
