Howard Goodfellow, PhD., P.Eng., FCAE, FEC
President and CEO, Goodfellow Business Enterprises
Over the course of Howard Goodfellow’s long engineering management career, he has led companies providing engineering consulting and design services to over 1000 clients.
Following a 16-year tenure with Hatch Associates, where he developed and grew the company’s Environment, Health and Safety Division, he founded Goodfellow Consultants Inc., a niche engineering company focused on ventilation, industrial hygiene and healthy buildings.
In 1996, he became president of Goodfellow Technologies Ltd., and in 1998 as vice president of Santec Global Technologies Ltd., was responsible for developing the Goodfellow Expert Furnace System Optimization Program (EFSOP). He commercialized this technology, designed to optimize the steelmaking process and reduce contaminant emissions from electric arc furnaces. In 2005, Tenova acquired the Goodfellow EFSOP technology group and Tenova Goodfellow Inc. (TGI), was formed. Under his management, TGI became a global leader and established longstanding collaborations with engineers at the University of Toronto’s Combustion Research Laboratory. Technology developed through the collaboration has been integrated into more than 100 global steelmaking plants, resulting in a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of more than 200, 000 tonnes and electricity consumption by over 300 gigawatt-hours, as well as reduced operating costs in the electric arc furnace market by as much as $90 million.
Dr. Goodfellow has trained generations of young Canadian engineers in leading-edge technology, preparing them to effectively compete in the global marketplace.
