Inside Battery Limits (ISBL) includes all design areas containing process units. These units are a duplication of an existing DuPont Canada plant in Maitland, Ontario. Modifications were made in order to adapt the plant to Alberta conditions (winterization, seismic, building codes, etc.)
Outside Battery Limits (OSBL) includes an access road, a railway spur, a truck loading facility, tankage for product storage, piping tie-ins to local utilities (natural gas and potable water) cooling water, steam generation, hydrogen generation and purification, and an effluent outfall to the North Saskatchewan River.
Extensive studies were performed to develop a plant design that had minimum impact on the environment.
