Reducing Hospital CO2 Emissions With Condensing Boilers

Reducing Hospital CO2 Emissions With Condensing Boilers

Simulations show effectiveness of condensing units

In the United States, hospitals consume 836 trillion Btu of energy annually. In the process, they emit more than 30 lb of carbon dioxide (CO2) per square foot, more than 2.5 times the amount commercial office buildings emit. This represents 7 percent of total U.S. CO2 emissions (6,103 million metric tons CO2 equivalent).1

This article examines the effect of using condensing boilers as a means of reducing hospital CO2 emissions.
