After five years of research, ClosedLoops is transitioning from feasibility and cost-benefit analysis to pre-development planning for a demonstration project in one of New York City's fastest-growing neighborhoods.
In December, 2015 NYSERDA and NYSDOT awarded ClosedLoops a second round of funding to advance our proposal for a pneumatic network serving the High Line Park and adjacent buildings. The NYC Departments of Sanitation and Transportation were among those who supported this grant application.
