which includes both WGC and Summerhill alongside other innovative businesses in the Syracuse region, to benefit communities, businesses, and students through experiential learning. "Innovative technology is for me a real or virtual family affair," iSchool Associate Professor Lee McKnight said. "I'm extremely proud of the work my father and brothers have done in the field of renewable energy. I hope people agree with me that Summerhill has tremendous potential."
"Through SEED, Lee McKnight and his team are exploring the frontier where green and information technologies meet," says Syracuse University Chancellor and President Nancy Cantor. "Both their innovations and their entrepreneurial spirit resonate deeply with longstanding strengths of Syracuse University and Central New York. In a real sense, then, SEED connects our past, present, and future."
Syracuse University iSchool Dean Elizabeth D. Liddy added, "The SEED project showcases the new possibilities created through interdisciplinary work," said Syracuse University iSchool Dean Elizabeth D. Liddy. "Only through such an innovative project would researchers think to use wireless grids technologies and the agricultural waste of cornstalks to enhance the lives of Syracuse city residents through an urban greenhouse."
Dr. James McKnight said his powder would cost less than heating oil, including delivery. It could also be used to heat commercial or institutional greenhouses, or in agricultural bins for drying out grain. Summerhill will be equipped to retrofit its system at homes or businesses that used heating oil or propane.
This concept was showcased Thursday, Oct. 15, at the Syracuse Tech Garden's Fall Tech Expo. Several other companies had display booths on their new innovations as well.
Dr. McKnight presented his technology last year at the World Bank Alternative Fuels Symposium. The powder burns between 5/100ths and 1/10th of a second, and emits no smoke
