Ammonia Heat Recovery

In 2020, our Heritage Hamilton plant installed an Ammonia Heat Recovery System that resulted in over 850,000 m3 of natural gas saved and over 1,500 tonnes of CO2e eliminated. Ammonia heat pumps convert the waste heat from refrigeration into useable high-temperature heat, rather than exhausting it to the atmosphere through evaporative condensers. Overall, our Heritage plant reduced its natural gas intensity by 20% from 2019.
