Phoenix continues pursuit of reduce carbon footprint

Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

ECM Technologies has been awarded a $2.1 million municipal contract from the city of Phoenix for up to 12 million square feet of conditioned space after running numerous, long-term pilot programs over the past four years in the Valley.

The company’s proprietary ThermaClear, proponents of the brand contend, radically extends the life and efficiency of HVAC systems with one treatment for the entire lifespan of the equipment, resulting in dramatic carbon footprint reduction and substantial energy savings, up to 15% annually, according to a press release.

The company has treated over 12,000 tons of HVAC equipment to date, servicing in excess of four million square feet of building conditioned space. All makes and models of major HVAC equipment types have been successfully treated, ranging from one-ton mini-splits to 2,000-ton, water-cooled chillers, the release states.

“In 2016, the city of Phoenix established its 2050 goal of becoming a carbon neutral city and the use of innovative technology such as this will play a role in that effort,” Jim Gorombei, Phoenix Public Works energy management specialist, said in a prepared statement.

“The city performed several pilot demonstrations with ECM Technologies and was satisfied with the results, therefore contracted with the company to implement its ThermaClear treatment in various facilities.”

ECM Technologies’ pilot programs used single ThermaClear treatments on a variety of buildings including Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, Arizona State University, Signature Flight Support, ISS Facilities Services and Transwestern. Savings results were demonstrated at every pilot property location and validated by third-party, independent professional engineers and analysts, the release states.

“The city of Phoenix’s confidence in ThermaClear and our ability to substantially impact the city’s carbon footprint and save it up to 15% in annual energy costs, speaks volumes as we move to officially launch ThermaClear here in the Valley,” said ECM Technologies Managing Director David Fenton. “We look forward to implementing our treatment at a variety of city facilities and assisting in its laudable efforts to go carbon neutral by 2050.”
