Canadian government to invest up to C$3.7 million to pipe heat and CO2 from ethanol plant to greenhosue

September 13, 2017 |

In Canada, the Government continues to support the agriculture and agri-food industry as it reduces emissions and adopts sustainable practices that lead to more efficient use of water and energy.  

Member of Parliament Peter Fragiskatos (London North Centre), on behalf of Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay, announced an investment of up to C$3.7 million for two Chatham companies to collaboratively reduce their environmental footprint, while making their operations more productive and competitive.

The investment is enabling Greenfield Global to install new Dutch technology that pipes waste heat and carbon-dioxide across the road to Truly Green Farms, reducing the greenhouse energy costs and boosting tomato yields.
