The Centre de transfert technologique en écologie industrielle (CTTÉI) broke all its records with sales of $2.2 million for the year 2018-2019. This amount represents a 38% increase over last year.
With nearly 100 projects completed for as many clients, the Centre has seen its revenues double in 3 years. Growing awareness of environmental issues is creating a favourable context for a wind of change among businesses and organizations.
The CTTÉI's hands-on approach and its ability to propose interesting solutions at the economic level also explain its success," explains Claude Maheux-Picard, Executive Director. The deployment of industrial symbiosis projects throughout Quebec, and even on Reunion Island, helps to distinguish the Centre's offer. »
Two major projects have made a difference over the past year: the awarding of an NSERC-funded Industrial and Territorial Ecology Research Chair, and significant funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Ministry of Economy and Innovation to build a leading-edge clean technology platform. Many private, NPO and municipal partners support these projects, including RECYC-QUÉBEC and Desjardins.
