CARO Wins 2014 Regulatory Challenge EMA of BC Award, Our Second Award in Two Years!
We are the proud recipient of another award (pictured below) for the Regulatory Challenge category at the recent 2014 Environmental Managers Association of British Columbia Environmental Management Awards. We won for our work on “Siloxanes: Quantifying a New Emergent Pollutant in Water, Air and Soil”
Environment Canada has recently published a notice announcing the requirement for preparation and implementation of pollution prevention plans in respect to Siloxane D4 in industrial effluents at 17.3 ug/L. Siloxane D4 has been identified by Environment Canada and Health Canada as potentially having “long-term harmful effects on the environment or its biological diversity”, and as meeting the criteria of a persistent chemical in the environment (Environment Canada, 2012).
We recently presented on this topic at major environmental industry conference, RemTech 2014 as detailed in an earlier post here.
Special thanks to the development team on this project: Caralee Bergeron (Organics Coordinator), CARO Organics Department, Brent Coates (Business Manager), Jaimie Duddridge (Analyst), Elise Marsden (Analyst), Stephen Varisco (Technical Manager), Patrick Novak (Vice President) and Jaime Tkachuk (Account Manager)
