Cue The Music Again!

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)

We have a great team that continues to do great work to service our clients and the needs of the environmental industry through developments such as these. We strive to be leaders in the Analytical Services Industry and this award validates a small part of our whole team’s efforts. CARO continues to invest in innovation, equipment, collaboration with clients, great team of Professional Chemists and our desire to work to improve the analytical science industry. CARO is also a proud supporter of the EMA of BC for many years and we thank them for the opportunity to be a part of highlighting the great work that organizations are doing within the environmental field via these awards.

Please contact myself or anyone on the CARO team if you would like to discuss this or how we can help you with your analytical projects and be a part of a winning team. We look forward to winning many more awards in the future with the great team we have and our valued clients.
