Innovation & Technology
Our continuous improvement in environmental performance is a direct result of the investments we have made in our facilities. Due to the completion of over $300 million in environmental related technology projects over the past several years, our refinery has become one of the most efficient and lowest emitters of sulfor dioxide in North America.
Some of our most recent investments were focused on sulphur recovery technology, which has led to substantial reductions in sulphur dioxide emissions. More recently our focus is on meeting new fuel specifications and further reducing Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions, with the construction of many projects at our refinery and terminals - some of which are in advance of anticipated regulations.
Over the past several years, our refinery has aggressively targeted the reduction of sulphur dioxide (SO2) emissions through improved processes and the instalment of new control technology.
Improved technology and environmental performance go hand-in-hand. Here are a few of the projects we are currently constructing to further reduce our environmental footprint.
