  • BBISS Fellow, Cobb to Take Winning Carbon Challenge Team to Washington

    The winning project in the 2017 Carbon Reduction Challenge class will avoid the emission of six million pounds of carbon dioxide, or about 2,720 metric tons.  This is not only a record in the ten year history of the class, but amounts to more carbon emissions avoided than all the previous year’s projects combined.  A group of four students worked with Georgia Tech Facilities Engineer Craig Forte to optimize the performance of the air handler in the lobby of the Klaus Advanced Computing Building.
