SANEXEN Wins Innovation And Environmental Protection Award From The CETEQ For Its Innovative Solution Against PFAS

SANEXEN Environmental Services Inc (“SANEXEN”), a subsidiary of LOGISTEC Corporation (“LOGISTEC”) has won the Innovation and Environmental Protection Award from the Conseil des entreprises en technologies environnementales du Québec (“CETEQ”) for the second year in a row. This time, its innovative ALTRA solution for the removal of PFAS in water, the forever toxic chemicals, was recognized for its ingenuity and effectiveness.

“We are very proud to have received this award for a second time, which once again recognizes the exceptional work accomplished by our people. Our team is determined to find solutions and develop new technologies to protect our environment and water resources,” says Madeleine Paquin, President and CEO of LOGISTEC.

ALTRA’s field-proven solution is poised to revolutionize the treatment of PFAS in water. It took years of in-house research and development to find an innovative balance for the treatment of contaminated water. The experts at ALTRA have succeeded in developing a robust and effective treatment solution that cost-effectively removes PFAS, both long and short chain, and is fully scalable to customer needs and contamination levels.

“Together with our team of experts and scientists, we have been able to develop in-house this remarkable solution to remove PFAS from water. This new technology is very promising, as we have seen in the field during our multiple pilots, especially for the treatment of water sources heavily contaminated with PFAS,” explained Martin Bureau, Vice-President, Innovation at SANEXEN.

“ALTRA’s technology has been field-tested at several contaminated sites with our mobile units – which are unique in Canada for PFAS concentrates. This is what drives us at SANEXEN: finding solutions that are cost-effective and will have a lasting positive impact on the environment and our communities for generations to come,” concluded Jean-François Bolduc, President of SANEXEN.

The award was presented at the CETEQ’s annual Envirolys gala, which took place on November 21 in Montreal. The Envirolys gala aims to showcase the private expertise of the green economy, the entrepreneurship and innovation of the builders of the environmental services industry, as well as new technologies and significant environmental projects in Quebec.
