We add value to oil products

We are building a demonstration facility using our ground breaking DSU® technology to produce finished low sulphur marine fuel using local heavy oil feedstocks. Our low sulphur marine fuel will help ships meet global sulphur limits.

  • 0.5% Global Sulphur Limits
    0.5% m/m on and after 1 Jan, 2020
  • 0.1% Inside an Emission Control Area
    0.1% m/m on and after 1 Jan, 2015

DSU® Technology

Our DSU® technology provides a cheaper, cleaner, and scalable solution for marine fuel production. The DSU® process has no direct SOx or GHG emissions - and it does not leave big piles of coke or asphaltenes behind. The key to the process is sodium, a powerful reducing agent with a strong affinity for sulphur and metals atoms interspersed in the complex heavy oil molecules. In our lab and in our pilot plant in Alberta, we have successfully demonstrated that we can produce ship-ready IMO and ECA-Compliant marine bunker fuels directly from vacuum residue and other heavy feedstocks – including some bottoms that are so heavy they are solid at room temperature.

Pilot Plant matches lab results


Our demonstration facility site is located
in the Alberta Heartland.
