We Are All About Helium and Green Hydrogen

Home to "Picasso" - the most advanced yet affordable helium recovery system for scientific applications

Quantum Technology is a global leader in specialized industrial gas applications, particularly Helium and Hydrogen. For 40 years we have been manufacturing premium Helium and Hydrogen liquefaction units, recovery systems and He production plants. We produce standard and custom solutions for any gas recovery, separation, purification and liquefaction.

We are the first helium refiner in Canada in 40 years. We produce and sell helium gas and build helium refining plants for us, our customers and our partners.

...and now we are the first Canadian company to build large scale hydrogen liquefiers and purifiers. The next liquefiers include several ton per day units, to be finalized starting Q1 - 2022. Several large green hydrogen purification projects are undeway, producing several tons per day of fuel-cell quality hydrogen to be compressed and shipped out.

Quantum Technology integrates its gas treatement knowhow and technologies in green hydrogen generation processses, with several projects around the world. They include carbon-free hydrogen production using natural gas, bio-mass and green energy.
