This newly acquired land is situated to the west of the 20 acres purchased in 2017, which is currently the site of the North Star expansion project. This recently completed project will greatly increase 13C production and is in the startup phase. North Star is the largest 13C separation facility ever built in the world and will significantly increase CIL’s capacity ensuring customer reliability for this stable isotope.

The land acquired provides the business flexibility to expand in the future as the demand continues to grow worldwide in all applications. “This investment shows CIL’s commitment to innovation and growth for our customers,” said CEO Cliff Caldwell. “CIL works closely with our diverse and global customers to develop and commercialize exciting, high-value applications for isotopically labeled compounds. As these applications commercialize, our customers rely on CIL’s ability to scale our chemistry quickly and reliably. This land acquisition assures we have the space to continue meeting their expectations and enable these technology advancements.”

The CIS facility has the world’s largest 13C separation facility, is one of the world’s largest 18O isotope-separation facilities and houses the largest commercial D2O re-enrichment columns in the world.

Stable isotopes, particularly deuterium, have seen an increase in commercial-scale applications in the last few decades. These applications include pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, flat panel displays, and other high-technology fields. CIL has a three-year supply contract with one Canadian source for D2O, as well as three other sources, and holds an average of an 18-24-month supply in four of CIL locations to ensure the most reliable supply.
