Asheboro, N.C. and Los Angeles, California., May 24, 2022 – In a first, the U.S. Green Building-Los Angeles Chapter’s (USGBC-LA) 21st Annual My Green Building Conference Expo (MyGBCE) announced Product Awards in addition to Municipal Building and Civic Awards. The “Energizing Efficiency Award”, is given to honor the product or service helping us best address reducing operational carbon, was awarded to Phase Change Solutions, Inc. (PCS). PCS’s organic phase-change material can significantly help reduce energy use and building operating expense and increase resiliency. In hotter climates or for summer, BioPCM® is tuned to actively absorb heat radiated from the environment, delaying the need for cooling. For cooler temperatures in winter, the BioPCM® can be tuned to absorb and release stored heat.
USGBC celebrates the making of eco-friendly buildings. Investing in smart materials like BioPCM® in new construction and retrofits ensures a path to more resilient communities.
Reyad Sawafta, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of PCS, said, “Sustainably sourced building materials like BioPCM are nontoxic and enable better health outcomes for those in buildings and the community overall. This is especially an issue in economically overburdened communities where people are already vulnerable living in buildings with asbestos and lead.”
Govi Rao, CEO of Phase Change Solutions, commented, “The BioPCM® platform is flexible and adaptable to a wide range of applications for the green future of buildings. Our ENRG Panels, containing BioPCM®, offer customers a variety of installation options for retrofit into buildings, without tearing down walls and can be hidden or become part of the visible architecture.”
BioPCM® has already played a critical role in many projects, ranging from bank branches, telecom cell base stations to universities.
