As part of its agreement with the city of Montreal, Air Products will provide oxygen equipment, including four vacuum swing adsorption (VSA) oxygen plants, to support the city’s new state-of-the-art ozone generation system. The ozone generation system will disinfect the water, removing viruses, bacteria and pharmaceutical products.
“Air Products is proud to collaborate with the city of Montreal on this important project. Air Products’ oxygen generating plants will support the city’s efforts to expand a sustainable water purification process to benefit the citizens of Quebec and the wildlife that depend on the St. Lawrence River,” said Air Products’ Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Samir J. Serhan. “As Air Products celebrates the 50th anniversary of Air Products Canada, this project reflects our continued commitment to Canada.”
Air Products began operations in Canada in 1973. Since then, Air Products has developed well established operations in Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. As Canada’s leading supplier of hydrogen and a leader in the energy transition, Air Products is constructing a $1.6 billion (CAD) net-zero hydrogen energy complex in Edmonton, Alberta. This transformative complex will use an advanced process technology and innovative design to deliver net-zero emissions. The complex also will include a hydrogen-fueled power generation plant and a liquid hydrogen facility that will produce enough liquid hydrogen capacity to fuel every major transit agency in Alberta. Earlier this year, Air Products also announced plans to build Alberta’s first multi-modal hydrogen refueling station near its net-zero hydrogen energy complex in Edmonton.
Air Products pioneered the concept of on-site oxygen production over 75 years ago and today continues to integrate oxygen generation plants into the operations of industrial and municipal users such as glass, nonferrous metals and steel, cement, pulp and paper, water treatment and other industries.
