    Convergent Water Technologies
    FocalPoint is a high-flow-rate biofiltration system designed to provide the performance of natural stormwater filtration on a very small footprint, which saves on first costs as well as ongoing maintenance costs. A fibrous, shallow root system harbors a complex ecosystem of microorganisms that aerobically break down organic nutrients, harmful bacteria, nitrogen compounds, and phosphorous. Supporting that system is a deep layer (one to four feet) of the Element1 biofiltration medium—which consists mostly of coarse sand, along with some finer sand as well as about 10% peat moss—topped by hardwood mulch that catches most of the oil and sediment. Underneath the medium is a layer of gravel that helps prevent the clogging that has plagued slow-flow-rate bioretention systems. An open-mesh textile separates the various media from the modular milk-crate-like under-drain system. The crates can be stacked or placed side by side to provide more volume to collect and store the treated water before it’s released for infiltration, detention, or harvesting. FocalPoint has been tested to both the TARP and TAPE protocols and removes 73% of total phosphorous, 43% of total nitrogen, 85% of total suspended solids, 57% of total metals, 90% of oil and grease, and 95% of bacteria.

    Cooper makes a wide range of roadway, area, and other outdoor LED lighting. The company’s Navion LED Roadway Luminaire was recognized by the DOE’s Next Generation Luminaires committee for its performance and versatility. It is available in multiple configurations that can provide from 3,600 to 22,000 lumens. Standard color temperatures and CRI are 4000K at 70 CRI, but 3000K/80 CRI and 6000K/70 CRI packages are also available, though GreenSpec does not recommend 6000K units due to potential disruption of circadian rhythms in humans and wildlife. These units can be selected for specific BUG ratings and are available with photocontrols and sensors.

    FilterPave
    FilterPave is a porous pavement that can support pedestrian and light vehicular traffic loads. With a compressive strength of 1,160 psi and a flexural strength of 508 psi, the pavement is designed for applications like sidewalks, patios, bike paths, and driveways. The poured-in-place material has a porosity of 39% and an SRI of 29. According to tests conducted by the University of Central Florida, FilterPave provides 6.2 inches per hour of infiltration even with excessive sediment loading and 33.1 inches per hour after a rejuvenation cycle. The pavement is a mix of 100% post-consumer glass and regionally sourced stone and aggregate, bonded with a polyurethane elastomeric resin. FilterPave Glass Series has over 20% glass, and FilterPave Stone Series may be mixed with up to 20% glass.

    SAGE Electrochromics, Inc.
    SAGE Electrochromics manufactures SageGlass, an electronically tintable exterior glazing that blocks solar heat gain while providing glare control and preserving views. SageGlass incorporates durable thin-film ceramic coatings and uses 0.28 W/ft2 to switch the glass from clear to tinted state and 0.1 W/ft2 to maintain a darkened state. Used with typical clear glass to fabricate an insulated unit, the tinting reduces the visible transmittance (Tvis) from 60% to 1%, while reducing the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) from 0.41 to 0.09. The company's triple-pane (Tvis 52% vs. 3%; SHGC 0.38 vs. 0.06), argon-filled and krypton-filled glazings have center-of-glass winter U-factors as low as 0.14 (R-7.1) and 0.12 (R-8.3), respectively. SageGlass can also come with a technology called LightZone, which enables one pane of glass to be tinted to different levels in three sections. SAGE is partnering with window, skylight, and curtainwall manufacturers to produce commercial and residential products that can help save energy while improving occupant comfort and control.

    Columbia Green offers two versions of its Advanced Vegetative Roof System (AVRS). The AVRS Tray System uses interlocking, overlapping modular trays that allow overfill so deeper growth medium can be added, up to 8" total depth. The trays also allow airflow to the tray bottoms to improve plant health and manage wind uplift. The company’s Multilayer system is engineered with a drainage layer and a water retention layer. Both of these products contain high amounts of recycled content; the trays and multilayered drainage layer are 88% and 40% post-consumer polypropylene, respectively, and the multilayered retention layer is 100% pre-consumer polypropylene. The growing media are chosen depending on project needs and plants can be regionally grown.
