Natural refrigerants are climate- and ozone-friendly gases that exist naturally in the biosphere such as ammonia, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbons.The award is presented every two years to celebrate an outstanding public-private partnership project that enhances environmental quality through the use of novel and creative approaches. It will be presented to the recipients at an HKS event later this spring.Refrigerants, Naturally! brings together four high-profile private companies — Coca-Cola Company, McDonald’s, Unilever, and PepsiCo — and two international environmental organizations — Greenpeace and the United Nations Environment Programme — to combat climate change and ozone layer depletion by developing natural refrigeration technologies that are safe, reliable, affordable, and energy efficient.For more information on Refrigerants, Naturally! and the award.last_img read more

Forget politics and do what’s right for town

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRe Nov. 15 letter, “Parties must work together in Nisky”: After reading Chief Louis Moskowitz’s comments regarding the Niskayuna election, I just had to write in. I agree with him 100 percent. I, too, felt that the two Democratic Councilwomen (Denise Murphy-McGraw and Lisa Weber) had no intention of working with the new Republican supervisor. It’s “us” against “her,” and we have the majority. Why not give this young woman (Ms. Syed) a chance? Although I don’t live in Niskayuna, I read about Supervisor Joe Landry’s retaliation against court employees wanting to use a back entrance. I think that’s why he didn’t get elected. He got a little too big for his boots.Try keeping an open mind and focus on doing what’s best for the people of Niskayuna.Lorraine VanDerWerkenRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesCar hits garage in Rotterdam Sunday morning; Garage, car burnlast_img read more
