The Ministère des Ressources naturelles et des Forêts, in collaboration with PRIMA Québec, has announced the funding of $3.3 million for eight research and development projects in the circular economy applied to critical and strategic minerals, including the Northex Environnement project.

Prestigious recognition for our efforts in the circular economy

Northex Environnement is proud to announce that it has been selected as part of the research and development support programme for the circular economy applied to critical and strategic minerals. This programme, managed by PRIMA Québec, has granted $3,328,342 for eight innovative projects.

Crucial support for innovation

The announcement was made on 19 June 2024 by Maïté Blanchette Vézina, Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry, in collaboration with PRIMA Québec. This initiative aims to promote the circular economy in Quebec by supporting projects that develop cutting-edge technologies for the recovery of critical and strategic minerals and mining waste.

The importance of research and development

Research and development are essential to deepen our understanding and improve our practices in the treatment of contaminated soils. At Northex Environnement, we use R&D to solve complex technical and environmental challenges. Through innovation, we can transform and recover contaminated soils in a sustainable way, contributing to a more robust circular economy in Quebec.

Our Contaminated Soil Recovery Project

Our project, supported by this funding, focuses on developing new methods for treating and reclaiming contaminated soil. We aim to develop innovative processes that not only decontaminate soils, but also transform them into resources that can be used for other industrial and environmental applications.

Northex Environnement and the future

With this recognition and funding, Northex Environnement is determined to continue to innovate and make a significant contribution to the circular economy. Our commitment to sustainability and innovation is reflected in every project we undertake, and this opportunity will allow us to push even further the boundaries of what is possible in the reclamation of contaminated soils.

The funding of more than $3.3 million by the Quebec government and PRIMA Québec underscores the importance of Northex Environnement’s efforts to build a greener, more sustainable future. Thanks to cutting-edge technologies and an unwavering commitment to innovation, we are ready to meet tomorrow’s environmental challenges and play a crucial role in protecting and reclaiming contaminated soil.
