Econoburn recently hosted a group of students from the University of Buffalo’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Undergrads and PhD candidates alike listened intently as Dale Furman, Econoburn’s Technical Director and Creator, explained and demonstrated each stage of the manufacturing process and each steps critical role to enhanced combustion performance.
Econoburn and its key staff have actively cultivated a strong relationship with the University to help foster the next generation of leaders in the fields of combustion, mechanics, and thermal fluid dynamics. Dale Furman remarked, “I always enjoy working with the students, especially when we host them here at our manufacturing facility. This allows them to see the theories studied in class applied in a real-world manufacturing environment”.
In addition to its University ties, Econoburn partners with local high schools, secondary technical vocational schools, and other agencies to help develop a skilled workforce for advanced biomass heating equipment well in to the future.
