Montréal, Québec, June 9, 2023 – ALTRA PFAS Solution has won the prestigious 2023 New Technology Award from Water Canada. This win is the latest award for ALTRA, which has already received various accolades over the past few years for its innovative technologies, and more recently for its PFAS solution, which allows for the most effective removal of highly concentrated PFAS streams from water.
“This award underlines ALTRA’s strength in delivering water technologies that are impactful, complex and transformative. It also highlights our commitment to improving the quality of our water today, and for the generations to come,” said Jean-François Bolduc, President of ALTRA | SANEXEN. “Our team is very proud of this award and the work we have done so far to develop solutions and new technologies to renew and protect our environment and water resources, which we will accelerate in the next years.”
Research has shown that PFAS have become pervasive in the environment and pose a health risk when accumulated in the body, creating a need to safely treat, destroy or sequester these contaminants while leaving limited harmful byproducts.
ALTRA PFAS Solution combines the power of its proprietary foam fractionation technology with high-performing modular units, which have been proven to be the safest approach, operating in continuous mode to treat large volumes of water contaminants.
“We were recently awarded a 10-year contract to provide the first-of-its-kind continuous full-scale PFAS treatment solution to the landfill and industrial waste management industry. Seeing our technology leading the way and in full-scale has urged our people to pursue their commitment,” added Martin Bureau, Vice-President, Innovation, ALTRA | SANEXEN, and PFAS Lead.
The award was presented at the annual Water Canada Awards Gala, which took place on June 8 in Ottawa, as part of the Water Canada Summit. These awards have been recognizing people, projects and technologies that have made significant contributions to Canada’s water industry for now 13 years.
