Raw Material Access

Both the concentration of complementary chemical manufacturing in the immediate region and the extensive inter-connectivity of supply lines gives industry convenient access to local feedstocks. Bio-Industrial Park Sarnia is located at the southern edge of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada's Great Lakes Region. Sarnia has a long history of easy access to North American crude oil and natural gas, putting this region at the forefront of the petrochemical industry. Today, much of Sarnia's oil and gas arrives by pipeline from Western Canada. The region is also linked to U.S. Gulf Coast pipelines via Chicago. Petroleum product pipelines also link Sarnia to Toronto and the the North Eastern United States market. Sarnia 's strategic location has resulted in the largest concentration of chemical industry in Ontario. Sarnia's chemical industry is interconnected by pipelines as the products and by-products of one company's processes become raw materials for another. Raw materials and chemical additives can also be shipped by rail, lake freighter or bulk truck transport.
