Bartek Ingredients plans to build a new production facility that promises to be the world’s largest and most technologically advanced malic and food-grade fumaric acid production plant.
The $175 million facility will double Bartek’s capacity and provide advanced production capabilities. It will be environmentally sustainable and is projected to reduce per unit GHG emissions by over 80 per cent.
“We are thrilled to be breaking ground on our new state-of-the-art facility which will set a new global benchmark for safety, efficiency, and environmental performance,” said John Burrows, president and CEO, Bartek Ingredients. “We are pleased to be investing in the community of Stoney Creek, and proud to play an integral part in supporting local industries and the local economy. We are thankful for our partnerships with the provincial and federal government and Environment Hamilton and their support and guidance throughout the process.”
WSP Global, is leading construction and design for the project. The facility is expected to be operational at the beginning of 2024.
