Kruger Products’ mill in Gatineau, Que. is receiving $15,000 from the federal government to help implement an energy management information system (EMIS).
The tissue manufacturer matched the contribution to the project, bringing the total investment to $30,000.
The EMIS is expected to further reduce energy costs and improve energy efficiency. Kruger Products has reduced its energy consumption intensity by 15 per cent and its greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 28 per cent since 2009.
“This project supports Kruger Products’ ongoing efforts to reduce our energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions by providing greater visibility to our usage through the energy management system,” says Michel Manseau, senior vice-president and general manager, Canadian consumer business at Kruger Products L.P.
Federal funding is provided through Natural Resources Canada and the Energy Efficiency for Industry Program, which offers financial assistance to help fund Canadian industrial facilities’ energy management projects.
Increasing the energy efficiency of Canada’s industrial sector is a key part of the federal government’s plan to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
