North America’s only single-site propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene complex 

Heartland Polymers is leveraging Western Canada’s abundant supply of local propane to produce polypropylene (PP), a high value plastic that can be recycled which global manufacturers transform into everyday products out of the Heartland Petrochemical Complex (HPC), our one-of-a-kind operation.

Located in Central Alberta, the world-scale integrated complex is comprised of North America’s only single site propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant and polypropylene (PP) plant and a co-generation central utilities block (CUB). Heartland is producing high quality products while continuing to partner on innovations to reduce waste and increase recycling. Heartland Polymers has a nameplate capacity of 525,000 tonnes of polypropylene per year with rail shipments leaving the facility daily. Heartland’s state-of-the-art rail loading complex (RLC) was designed for distributing quality polypropylene products delivered via extensive rail network and storage facilities, ensuring reliable delivery of product to customers across North America and the globe.

Inter Pipeline commissioned the Complex in 2022, and it entered into commercial production early in 2023. Heartland is Canada’s only PP production operation and one of the newest in the industry to produce versatile, durable, recyclable PP.

The idea was big, the opportunity, even bigger

Heartland began with a big idea. An idea for the future of Canada’s petrochemical industry, and for Alberta’s economy. Drawing on parent company Inter Pipeline’s two decades of industry experience, and after over ten years of planning and construction, this idea has moved from the drafting table to the field. We are thrilled to reach completion of this project and bring better directly to our customers.
