Montreal, Canada, October 22, 2009 – Biothermica today announced that it has been inducted into the National Quality Institute’s Canadian Hall of Excellence. The Canada Awards for Excellence program rewards leading organizations from the private and public sectors with Canada's pre-eminent distinction for Organizational Excellence.
Biothermica initially received the Canada Award for Excellence for its innovative BIOTOX® technology which destroys non conventional and corrosive emissions from numerous industries. This award recognized the BIOTOX® as a major breakthrough in the field of air pollution control.
“Biothermica is greatly honoured by this induction” said Guy Drouin, President of Biothermica. “Since the company’s inception in 1987, we have strived to maintain a standard of excellence throughout all our operations. Our accomplishments have positioned Biothermica as a key player in the fight against air pollution and climate change”.
Based on its experience with the BIOTOX® technology, Biothermica recently developed the VAMOX® system for the oxidation of underground coal mine ventilation air methane (VAM). The company financed and implemented the first VAM abatement project at an active mine in America. This project, located at Jim Walter Resources’ mine no. 4. in Alabama (USA), first oxidized methane in January 2009.
Founded in 1987, Biothermica is a leader in the design, construction and turn-key delivery of air pollution control and landfill gas-to-energy solutions. Biothermica is also a fully integrated developer of methane destruction and utilization projects based on the monetization of carbon credits. www.biothermica.com
