Hamilton’s Waste Heat Recovery Project
(Posted on 20/05/19)
The Hamilton Port Authority is supporting an exciting initiative helping companies that operate in Hamilton’s Bayfront Industrial Area to maximize waste heat recovery opportunities. The Port of Hamilton is the seventh largest port in Canada by volume, and the largest in Ontario.
This two-year project â€• spearheaded by the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with The Atmospheric Fund â€• will deliver a report with recommendations on how local firms can leverage district energy and other waste heat recovery systems to drive business competitiveness, lower GHG emissions and increase energy efficiencies. The project is seeking bayfront companies to contribute to an inventory of waste heat sources, as well as recovery systems in place and in the planning stage. Companies, institutions and buildings (residential and commercial) in a position to use the waste heat of nearby producers are also encouraged to participate. There is no cost.
The Hamilton Port Authority’s 2018 cargo results revealed the highest volume of cargo handled through the port in more than a decade.
More than 11.6 million metric tonnes of cargo was imported or exported through the Port of Hamilton during the 2018 shipping season, an 18 per cent increase over 2017’s total.
In November of 2018, Transport Minister Marc Garneau was in Hamilton to announce an investment in the Port of Hamilton through the National Trade Corridor Fund. This $17.7 million investment, matched by HPA, will provide for new and upgraded transportation infrastructure, and see port lands reconfigured to create new development-ready employment lands.
