Suncor is working to maintain and improve air quality near our operations, even as our energy production increases. We are taking action on air quality by improving our energy efficiency and investing in new technologies.
We have introduced a number of initiatives at several of our refineries, plants and worksites to help reduce releases of key air pollutants including:
- hydrogen sulphide (H2S),
- nitrogen oxides (NOx),
- sulphur dioxide (SO2), and
- volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Suncor also participates in several community-based organizations in Alberta to support the monitoring and reporting of air quality within those regions.
