Co2 recovery

Air Liquide’s Johnstown plant

Air Liquide Canada, a subsidiary of the Air Liquide Group (Paris, France; www.airliquide.com), officially inaugurated its brand-new carbon dioxide (CO2) recovery plant, strategically located in Johnstown, Ontario.

This  plant is the only one in Canada with a Health Canada drug establishment license authorizing the fabrication, testing, packaging and labeling of medical grade CO2 in accordance with the requirements of the Canadian Food and Drugs Act, as well as the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) requirements of the Canadian Food and Drug Regulations.

Boasting over 300 tons per day capacity, this latest addition to Air Liquide facilities in Canada is now in full operation mode and delivers premium CO2 that is also FSSC (Food Safety System Certification) and NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) certified.  

“With its state-of-the-art design and latest technology, the 170,000 square feet facility enables us to capture the raw CO2 waste feed from Greenfield, leading Canadian ethanol supplier, and transform it (thus preserving the environment) into liquified CO2 gas, which is then delivered to Air Liquide Central Canada customers who will use it mainly in the food, water treatment and manufacturing industries,” explained Bertrand Masselot, President and CEO of Air Liquide in Canada, at the ribbon-cutting ceremony, where he also acknowledged and saluted the hard work of the Air Liquide employees who made all this possible. Some of those employees were acting as guides for the tour of the facilities that followed the presentations.

Ross Fuller, Vice-President, Process Industries, commented: “After just four months of tests, audits and certifications, the results are astonishing: major industrial customers in Quebec and Ontario benefit from a nearby high quality gas supply source and Air Liquide makes a significant contribution to the local economy. The Johnstown CO2 recovery plant will position Air Liquide for continued growth as a leading medical and industrial gas provider in Canada.”
