食物浪费转移

2019年8月, 正规买足球app下载 University started diverting all food waste from its Tully dining services and catering operations. 大学已经转移了30多名学生,焚烧了000磅食物垃圾,并将其转化为可再生能源和堆肥. 这一成就是与蓝色地球堆肥合作的结果——一个住宅, 商业, 以及位于哈特福德的活动食品垃圾收集公司. The company has been servicing 商业 customers all over Connecticut for over four years and is excited that 正规买足球app下载 University has signed on.

正规买足球app下载所有的食物残渣都将捐给量子生物能源公司, Southington的厌氧消化器. Quantum captures the biogas produced by the scraps when they break down and burns this gas to create renewable energy that powers 700 homes. 当这个过程完成时, 这些废料被制成营养丰富的堆肥,可以用来种植更多的植物和食物.

正规买足球app下载助理副校长, 吉姆·菲茨帕特里克对这项新计划感到兴奋.

根据美国.N. 据联合国粮农组织统计,食物浪费占温室气体排放总量的8%. 如果食物浪费是一个国家, 它将产生仅次于美国和中国的第三大温室气体排放. 仅在康涅狄格州,每年就有超过65万吨的可堆肥材料被焚烧.

正规买足球app下载 University is doing their part to cut down on this number and lead Connecticut toward a more environmentally sustainable future.

热电联产装置(CHP)

In 2007, 正规买足球app下载建造了它的成本效益, energy producing combined heat and power plant (CHP) on campus that provides power to the majority of buildings. The CHP system requires approximately 22% less fuel than typical onsite thermal generation and purchased electricity, 根据环保局. 基于这种比较, 热电联产系统有效地减少二氧化碳排放约7,每年400吨. 减少的排放量相当于1200多辆乘用车的年排放量.

正规买足球app下载's CHP generates nearly 95% of the power needed by the campus and produces up to 66% of the school's high temperature hot water 加热 and cooling supply, 根据环保局. 回收和利用其他废热从4.6兆瓦太阳能涡轮机已经导致估计每年节省2美元.200万年.

9美元.500万美元的项目是与联合技术开利合作完成的. 联合照明公司给了正规买足球app下载2美元.为这个项目拨款300万美元, stemming from the State of Connecticut's Capital Grant for Customer-Side Distributed Generation Resources program.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency honored the University with a 2010 Energy Star CHP Award for the energy smart CHP, 这有助于大幅减少该地区电网的排放和需求.

耶稣会社区中心

耶稣会社区中心

In 2009, 正规买足球app下载 completed construction on an environmentally friendly home for the 耶稣会 community and a gathering place for spiritual direction, 撤退, 会议和娱乐. 耶稣会社区中心拥有许多节能功能, 包括草皮屋顶, 房子的主要部分被草覆盖, 可以过滤雨水, 减少热损失, 并且在夏天保持大楼凉爽. 房子里的大窗户将阳光直射到深色的混凝土地板上, 利用太阳能在室内散发热量. 此外,建筑的表面使用了许多回收材料. 内外墙的隔热效果也很好, 节约能源, 但也要保持适合沉思的安静气氛.

The most dramatic energy-saving dimension to the new Center is the "closed loop" geothermal 加热 system, which provides heat in winter and cools the building in the summer based on the naturally stable temperature of the earth 400 feet below the surface. 大楼周围已经打了15口“井”, and in each well are pipes - interconnected through a closed loop network - filled with a combination of water and a non-toxic anti-freeze solution. Pumps in the house push the liquid out of the building and down into the pipes in the wells before the liquid is circulated back into the house.

在新英格兰, the earth at a depth of 400 feet remains at a stable temperature between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat pump in the building uses the temperature differential between the liquid in the loop and the ambient exterior air temperature to create heat in the winter and cooling in the summer.

The "close loop" geothermal system could save as much as half of the energy that the building would otherwise consume.

LED照明

正规买足球app下载 University has adopted energy efficient LED lighting as the standard fixture for replacing exterior lighting. LED照明的第一个应用是快速中心地段的扩展和升级. The existing 250 Watt High Pressure Sodium (HPS) fixtures were replaced with 94 Watt "cut off" fixtures. The "cutoff" feature directs the light to the ground surface to achieve approximately one foot candle per square foot. 这一特性大大减少了夜空的眩光,通常被称为光污染. 除了节省大量的电力消耗, LED灯具的使用寿命为70年,000小时,而25小时,000小时的常规装置. 正规买足球app下载还在所有的四联住宅用LED灯替换了HPS壁灯.

The 快速 Center Lot also included the green feature of pervious pavement in lieu of the standard impervious pavement. Pervious pavement allows storm-water to percolate into the water table as opposed to going into catch-basins which increase point flows and flooding.
