The Montreal sulphur plant provides our operations in Montreal with sulphur removal and recovery services. This process enables us to meet regulatory requirements and achieve product specifications.
The plant began operations in 1958 and was acquired by Suncor from the former Chemtrade Montreal Partnership Limited in 2014.
It produces 30-80 tonnes per day of elemental sulphur, 50-80 tonnes per day of sodium bisulphite and has a maximum production capacity of 235 tonnes per day.
The finished products are transported by rail and truck for use in various industries.
