Canada’s Land Force Command (LFC), has practiced formal environmental management since 1992 and has tasked itself to become “an environmental leader among Federal organizations and allied armies, by providing a healthy and sustainable environment in support of operations by the year 2018. The use of ‘green’ technologies to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in its buildings has become a priority. To date, MatrixAir™ systems are providing solar heated fresh air to various Canadian military resulting in more than 6975 GJ in annual energy savings.
