Econoburn, headquartered in Brocton, NY, is an industry leader in the design and manufacturing of gasification wood boilers. These renewable green energy systems provide businesses and homeowners with an all-natural heating system that is the cleanest and most cost effective way to burn wood.
Since its introduction in the US marketplace in 1976, the downdraft wood burning technology known as “gasification” has provided customers with an all-natural and low-maintenance solution for heating homes and businesses. These heating systems use a renewable resource (wood) and are eco-friendly alternatives to burning coal and other fossil fuels. They also help reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil.
Today, Econoburn, is a leading manufacturer of heating systems that employ gasification technology. This company is relying on the engineering expertise and computing resources at the University at Buffalo to design next-generation wood-fired heating systems that are more efficient and produce much lower emissions. Facilitated by the HPCNY industry outreach program, this industry-academic partnership will ensure that these New York companies remain at the forefront of the industry.
Econoburn is currently a small company owned by Abasco, Inc. located in Hamburg, NY with a total of 50 employees, 11 of which are primarily dedicated to Econoburn. Recently becoming one of only three companies worldwide to receive approval from New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) for their energy efficiency incentive program, Econoburn is predicted to continue its growth.
