Sanexen wins award for PFAS removal

Sanexen Environmental Services Inc 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 solution for the removal of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (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,” said Madeleine Paquin, president and CEO of Logistec, Sanexen’s parent company.

Martin Bureau, vice-president, innovation at Sanexen said multiple pilot projects have proved the technology can clean even heavily contaminated water.

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.
