Sector: Energy Efficiency
Current Status: In Progress
Estimate GHG reduction Potential: 660 tonnes of GHG (CO2 equivalents).
Support of $262,000 from the Newfoundland and Labrador Green Fund will assist the Browning Harvey bottling facility in St. John’s with the installation of an integrated management system to help reduce energy requirements in its manufacturing process.
The proposal involves using the waste energy to heat the interior of the bottling plant on Ropewalk Lane, St. John’s, thereby reducing the energy costs for space heating. Additionally, the old heating and ventilation system, as well as the water chiller, will be replaced with a single set of shared air source heat pumps. As a result of these energy efficient upgrades, it is estimated that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will be reduced by 660 tonnes per year.
