Canadian Industrial Ecoleader
1st developer of sustainable solutions for rainwater management
This corporate priority has led Soleno to make decisions and take concrete action over the past few years, particularly in the areas of recycling and industrial symbiosis, in order to reduce its consumption at the source. Several examples demonstrate Soleno’s involvement in this area.
The Soleno innovation Pole was created in 2019 with the objective of attracting and federating multidisciplinary expertise in order to find sustainable solutions to the problem of recycling residual plastic materials that threaten the environment, particularly through research on the possible reuse of plastics destined for landfill sites.
Today, the pole includes a world-class laboratory that combines the expertise of private, government and academic partners. In collaboration with these partners, the cluster aims to integrate the training and supervision of highly qualified workers in the plastics industry.
Once deposited in the bin, the containers are recycled into recycled plastic before being integrated into the manufacturing process of products dedicated to stormwater management.
These products are then distributed and installed under our fields, roads and infrastructures throughout Eastern Canada and will have a second life of over 100 years.
Together, we have chosen to manage our resources in a responsible manner to contribute to the development of future generations. Every day, we work hard to ensure the sound management of our resources, whether human, financial or material. Sustainable development is based on a long-term vision that takes into account the inseparable nature of the environmental, social and economic dimensions of development activities.
By putting forward this mission, Soleno has obtained its ECORESPONSIBLE Certification – level 2. Performance in sustainable development of the Sustainable Industries Council’s (SIC) ECORESPONSABLE Program for our main plant located at 1160, route 133, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.
Soleno is once again taking responsibility for recycling. The company recently acquired thousands of obsolete gas tanks destined for landfill and integrated them into its recycling and manufacturing process.
The tanks, will be recycled and transformed into a pipe dedicated to the control of stormwater which will now have a useful life of more than 100 so, the company helps removed from the earth, the equivalent of hundreds of tons of plastics.
This project is in addition to the other key initiatives put in place for the company in order to obtain sustainable supplies.
Underneath our roads, our neighborhoods, our homes and our fields, Soleno is everywhere. As the leading developer of sustainable solutions, we are masters in stormwater management for the infrastructure, residential, natural resources and agricultural sectors.
