The BP Pont-Rouge's plant has 2 natural gas steam boilers used for the steam production in the manufacturing process of the plant. As part of this project, C-nergie installed a heat recovery unit on the combustion gases of the two boilers.
The recovered energy is now transfered to a brine loop that preheats a new air unit.
The benefits are:
-589 400 m³ of natural gas saved;
-Return on investment period of 1.3 years;
-More than $800 000 in subsidies;
-1 100 tons of GHGs saved /year; The average annual consumption of 275 passenger vehicles;
