Copol implementing energy management information system
By Anthony Capkun
July 20, 2021 – Ottawa is investing over $19,000 in Copol International Ltd.’s energy management information system (EMIS) to help the North Sydney, N.S., packaging firm reduce costs and improve energy efficiency.
Together with contributions provided by Copol and Efficiency Nova Scotia, the total project investment is nearly $50,000.
Founded in 1992, Copol is a manufacturer of cast polypropylene film, which is used in traditional and non-packaging applications e.g. freezer to microwave film, bakery film, as well as lamination, tapes and labels.
Federal funding is provided by the Energy Efficiency for Industry Program, which offers financial assistance to help fund Canadian industrial facilities’ energy management projects.
“We are grateful for the support of Natural Resources Canada, which has allowed us to install the tools needed to control and reduce our energy usage,” said Denis Lanoë, Copol International Ltd.
