Fuel Conversion

The fuel mixture at the University Utilities Annex will be changed from Bunker C to #2 fuel oil which will result in a major reduction in emissions. Converting to 100% #2 fuel oil will reduce emissions by 20 tonnes (87%) of particulate matter 27.6 tonnes (54.7%) of oxides of nitrogen and 98 tonnes of (70.9%) sulphur dioxide. Emission reductions will benefit the environment, particularly in the centre of St. John’s, which includes the Health Sciences Centre and the University.
