Tecosol is a Quebec company offering various services in the field of contaminated soil and groundwater. Tecosol was founded in 1993 following the development of an innovative soil and groundwater treatment technology. This process, Soltec, is applied in situ, directly in the soil, without excavation. Soltec was developed in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada and the Université de Sherbrooke in Quebec. Research and development projects were carried out on two industrial sites owned by Alcan Ltd. between 1995 and 1999.
Over the years, Tecosol has developed partnerships allowing it to expand in the Quebec contaminated soil and environmental protection market. In 2005, the company joined forces with Groupe Industries Fournier de Thetford Mines to invest in commercial and research and development activities. Groupe Industries Fournier manufactures Tecosol's mobile treatment units. Since 2009, Tecosol has been working in collaboration with the Institut national de recherche scientifique (INRS) on the development and eventual commercialization of the Métox process. This innovative treatment process will make it possible to treat soil contaminated by heavy metals directly on the site concerned.
The company's team of professionals is led by Pierre Dufresne, Master of Hydrogeology, MSC, who has more than thirty years of experience in the field of soil and groundwater decontamination. This team is multidisciplinary. Here are the different specialists:
