Company Description Loci Controls was founded in 2012 by graduate students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Loci’s team has a strong engineering team that can provide guidance and mentorship throughout the internship. Loci manufactures a distributed sensor-actuator control device used to optimize the production of landfill gas. In 2013, more electricity was generated in the US from landfill gas-to-energy operations than from the domestic solar industry! Using the distributed sensing and control capabilities provided by their “WellWatcherTM”, Loci is able to increase landfill gas production by up to 50%; leading to not only higher sales of electricity/fuel but also reduced emissions of green house gas.
