Chemtrade’s web site says it turns the slurry produced by Syncrude’s ammonia scrubber into ammonium sulphate fertilizer.

The corporate works independently of Syncrude and its majority proprietor, Suncor Power. Nonetheless, Suncor’s oilsands operations have been the location of a number of office accidents. Since 2014, 13 staff have died in office accidents at Suncor websites. That is greater than every other firm working within the oilsands.

The incidents led to the resignation of CEO Mark Little final summer time. The corporate’s new CEO, Wealthy Kruger, has vowed to enhance security at Suncor’s oilsands websites.
