The Proposed Project 


Meltech Innovation Canada plans the construction of an industrial building on the north part of lot 5 599 104 located on the Chemin de l'Aviation at YUL Montreal-Trudeau International Airport. The building's ground surface area will be approximately 4,000 square meters, situated on a 15,500 square meter lot. The land is located on the site of an old golf course, now unused. No wetlands, waterways, sensitive species or habitats or protected zones are present on the site. For the Google localisation of the site, click here

The building will be used to produce nonwoven fabric for surgical mask manufacturing. The production process uses extruders and hot air to produce fine fibers. These fibers are randomly laid on a moving belt to produce the fabric which is then slit to width and wound in rolls suitable for use in mask manufacturing.
