“It is imperative that Humber lead the way in sustainability and new technology,” said Humber College President John Davies as Chief Energy Conservation Officer of Ontario Peter Love presented the college with a Certificate of Recognition for the installation of a unique and efficient cooling system at the college’s North Campus. He continued, “By using state-of-the-art technology, we are benefiting the environment and reducing our operating costs, while creating a comfortable learning environment.”

The new cooling system, called the Hartman Loop, is the first of its kind in Canada and is 50 per cent more efficient that Humber’s old system. The Hartman Loop electronically co-ordinates the operation of the chillers, pumps and cooling towers as an integrated system, monitoring and adjusting equipment automatically. The college expects to save $100,000 a year in energy costs and reduce green house gas emissions by 280 tonnes year each.
