Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership welcomes Imtex Membranes to the region

February 10, 2019 |

In Canada, the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership announced that Imtex Membranes Corp. will be constructing a scaled demonstration site located within the Sarnia-Lambton Hybrid Chemistry Cluster.

The demonstration site will showcase Imtex’s patented gas separation process called Permylene. Achieving a greater than 99.5% purification rate, Permylene helps extract chemicals such as ethylene, propylene, and butene from gas, while reducing energy consumption by over 30% when compared to traditional separation processes, while also producing less waste.

The initial announcement was made at Imtex’s Mississauga headquarters, where Canada’s Federal Minister of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development, Navdeep Bains, announced Imtex would be receiving a $6 million funding injection from Sustainable Development Technology Canada.

The Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership and Bioindustrial Innovation Canada (BIC) have worked closely with Imtex as they worked through their site selection process and funding applications. Imtex credited SLEP and BIC with being forward thinking and acting as the catalysts for clean technology.

Imtex’s hope is that their field demonstration system in Sarnia will further open the door for monetizing Canadian and Sarnia-based project opportunities.
