Air Products has been chosen by the city of Montreal to supply oxygen equipment to support an ozone generation site that will remove impurities from wastewater at the Jean-R-Marcotte Wastewater Treatment Plant, one of the largest wastewater treatment plants in North America.

Jean-R.-Marcotte treats almost half of Quebec’s wastewater before releasing it into the St. Lawrence River. On average, the wastewater treatment plant releases 2.3 million cubic meters of water into the river per day.

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 of LeHigh Valley, PA, 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 net-zero hydrogen energy complex in Edmonton. 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.
