Teck Operations:

Construction completed at Teck Trail Operations.

  • Aug. 7, 2014 6:00 a.m.

Teck Trail Operations has completed construction of the No. 1 Acid Plant, which has now commenced operation and is operating at design rates. The new acid plant improves environmental performance, operational reliability and reduces downtime and maintenance costs. The new plant is expected to reduce sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions from Trail Operations by up to 15 per cent.

“Safety is a core value at Teck. Our employees and contractor partners have exemplified this value on the project, which was completed with zero lost time injuries,” said Greg Belland, General Manager, Teck Trail Operations. “The environmental and operational improvements that this new plant provides will support the long-term viability of Trail Operations.”

The No. 1 Acid Plant replaces two older plants on the zinc processing side of the operation.
