CAN (ON): Truly Green benefits from industrial waste heat
Truly Green has been receiving excess CO2 from Greenfield since 2013, which has helped boost tomato yields by five per cent. Greenfield is in the final stages to start selling its waste heat for use in the greenhouse.
“It's been going fine, now we can supply them with some heat,” said Veselin Nikolov, manager of Greenfield's Chatham plant.
He said the commissioning of the waste heat transfer system began on Monday to complete the preliminary health and safety review.
