SANBORN, N.Y. (WIVB) – Niagara County Community College and Covanta Niagara are entering into a new education and industry partnership.
Covanta Niagara owns and operates an energy-from-waste facility in Niagara Falls, which have been converting waste into clean energy since 1980. The electricity and steam produced at the facility supplies surrounding businesses and the regional power grid.
On Tuesday, NCCC and Covanta announced the company will donate $150,000 to be used to enhance the college’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) facilities in the college’s proposed Learning Commons on the main campus.
An additional $100,000 will be used for the Covanta Community Scholarship fund. This endowed scholarship will be awarded to students who are active in their communities and are seeking to pursue an Associate Degree in Environmental Studies or Engineering Studies at NCCC.
