SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Carrier Corp. announced that it has pledged $1.5 million to the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems to help create a world-class laboratory to study the effects of indoor air quality (IAQ) in buildings. Carrier is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (UTC).

Dr. Greg Powers, Carrier's vice president of engineering, was joined by U.S. Rep. James T. Walsh and Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor in making the announcement before 200 attendees at the annual symposium sponsored by the Center of Excellence. "Innovation is center to Carrier's DNA, and Syracuse is center to Carrier's innovation. That's why we are so pleased to support the creation of this new facility," said Powers.

This announcement by Carrier "is indication of UTC's strong commitment to the central New York research community and further leverages private investment in this important effort," said Rep. Walsh, who has secured over $26.6 million in federal resources for the Center of Excellence. "The Environmental and Renewable Energy Systems Center of Excellence supports Carrier's own Syracuse-based research and design activities."

"This important commitment from Carrier Corp. represents the beginning of a new era of collaborations with Syracuse University and our partners in the Syracuse Center of Excellence," said Cantor. "This era holds tremendous promise for all of us, including the entire community of central and upstate New York, as we confidently expect the new collaborations will create innovations that fuel economic development in the region for generations to come."

Carrier's grant will also establish a doctoral fellowship at Syracuse University to advance the study of indoor environmental quality. The grant will be made over a five-year period subject to renewal each year.
