Engineer, entrepreneur and business consultant, David Gaudreault will lead the project. He will be responsible for identifying and facilitating inter-company synergies, and supporting entrepreneurs in all their circular initiatives.  

"It's an opportunity for businesses in the region to increase their competitiveness, by adding value to their resources and residual materials, and by adopting sustainable, profitable and circular models,"says David Gaudreault to the local business community.

The circular economy, a lever for regional economic development

industrial symbiosis is a network of organizations linked by exchanges of residual materials, expertise, equipment and services. In this way, the residues of some become the resources of others. Participating companies see their waste management costs reduced. This improves their competitiveness and resilience to economic or health shocks.

The Pierre-De Saurel symbiosis is propelled by the Centre de transfert technologique en écologie industrielle (CTTÉI), the City of Sorel-Tracy, the MRC de Pierre-De Saurel, Développement économique Pierre-De Saurel (DÉPS), the SADC Pierre-De Saurel, the Société des parcs industriels de Sorel-Tracy (SPIST), the Chambre de commerce et d'industrie de Sorel-Tracy (CCIST ) and the Recyclo-Centre. The event is organized under the banner of the Montérégie Circulaire project, which is driven by Comité 21 Québec and already active in other Montérégie regions.
