This now-demolished chemical plant was formerly the AkzoNobel Chemical plant Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec.
The factory opened in 1985 under the name Alby Chlorates, followed by Eka Chimie, Eka Nobel and AzkoNobel in 1994.
The factory mainly produced sodium chlorate, used as a bleach in the paper pulp industry. The closure was brought on by a global surplus of sodium nitrate.
The closure in March of 2019 left 50 people in the area out of work.
Just a few weeks ago demolition on the buildings was completed.
