Infinite Cooling, a startup that developed a system at MIT to enable significant water savings in the process of cooling power generators, received the Robert P. Goldbderg Grand Prize at the MIT $100K Launch Finale. Its patent-pending technology uses electrical fields to recapture water that evaporated from the cooling towers of power plant. This water is then recycled back into the cooling system. Infinite Cooling's technology could decrease power plant water consumption by as much as 30 percent, saving millions of dollars to power plant managers every year.  The co-founders of Inifinite Cooling are Maher Damak and Karim Khalil, PhD candidates in the Varanasi Research group in MIT's department of Mechanical Engineering. Derek Warnick, COO, graduated from the MIT Sloan School of Management in 2009 where he focused on sustainable energy and energy finance. The last co-founder,  Kripa Varanasi, also serving as Chairman, is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at MIT.
