NYSERDA Announces $2 Million for UV/EB Technology Funding (9/8/09)

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has announced funding opportunities for ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) curing technologies used in the manufacturing industries. Details will be released and NYSERDA representatives will be on hand at uv.eb EAST (, sponsored by NYSERDA and RadTech - The Association for UV and EB Technology.  The full text of NYSERDA's announcement follows:

NYSERDA announces the upcoming release of Program Opportunity Notice (PON) 1641: Ultraviolet Light (UV) and Electron Beam (EB) Process Innovation and Market Transformation. The solicitation will provide incentives for New York State industrial sites to adopt innovative UV and/or EB processes within their manufacturing process, or for New York State technology developers to produce an innovative UV/EB product, process or service that will provide an energy benefit to end users. The release of this solicitation will coincide with NYSERDA's jointly sponsored conference with RadTech, entitled UV/EB East, which will be held at the Niagara Falls Conference Center, Oct. 20-21, 2009.

"PON 1641 demonstrates NYSERDA's commitment to support the deployment of environmentally friendly technologies and will provide up to $2 million for research and demonstration projects within New York State," said Francis J.Murray, Jr., NYSERDA president and CEO. "The increased adoption of ultraviolet light and electron beam curing technologies complements the vision of Governor Paterson's energy efficiency agenda and will enable New York State manufacturers to remain competitive and create clean energy jobs for the future."

NYSERDA has provided incentives for a number of notable UV and EB projects through funding opportunities that sought proposals covering an array of technologies. PON 1641 is NYSERDA's first targeted UV/EB solicitation.

uv.eb East is a two-day conference and exhibition presenting the use of UV and EB curing in a range of industrial applications, including Printing/Packaging, Photovoltaics, Wood Finishing, and Industrial Applications including Metal and Plastics.
