BRISTOL, PA — DEP Secretary John Hanger visited the Bridge Business Center in Bristol, to announce that the BBC received a Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority Grant totaling $1 million. The funding is provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The money will be used to install a highly efficient energy system – including micro-turbines, chillers and a cooling tower in a retrofitted chemical laboratory.

The $2.6 million project has created more than 50 temporary jobs and is expected to save 1.8 million KWh/year, generate 4 million KW/year and reduce local carbon dioxide emissions by 2,522 tons annually. Significant energy savings will be passed along to the tenants including Bucks County Community College, AE Polysilicon, A&C Pharmtech and Chemistry Research Solutions.

The Bridge Business Center is a thirty-acre industrial and manufacturing site located in Bristol Township, in the Lower Bucks Enterprise Zone and the Bucks Bio-KIZ Keystone Innovation Zone. The space available at Bridge Business Center includes high-end, specialty research chemistry and biology labs, advanced manufacturing facilities suitable for contract manufacturing & pilot plant operations, and related corporate and administrative office space.

Doylestown based Keystone Redevelopment Group has been working to reposition the 200,000 plus square feet of existing laboratory, office and manufacturing buildings, which were part of Rohm and Haas holdings until 2005, to meet the anticipated growing demand of these industry sectors in this region.
