Seven35 Building, North Vancouver, Canada
Developed by Adera Developments, the Seven35 Building, situated on the north shores of Vancouver, offers a variety of features designed to uphold a deep commitment to sustainability. This multi-award winning development consists of 60 urban-stacked town homes and was the site for the first installation of the SHARC sewage heat recovery system. The SHARC sewage heat recovery system recycles the heat from the raw sewage before it exits the building to the municipal sewer line.The average water usage per town home is 250 gallons per day at an average exiting temperature of 20°C (68°F).
The SHARC system has FHP heat pumps with double walled, vented heat exchangers that recover waste heat from the existing raw sewage and moves that heat into 6-120 gallon DHW storage tanks.
In the Seven35 Building, flow meters, temperature sensors and electrical meters were installed throughout the sewage heat recovery system in order to monitor and log both the system operation and the amount of energy used and recovered by the SHARC system.
