Wastewater skimming the surface

A walk on the wild side gave the founder of a Calgary service company a new appreciation for clean water, indirectly laying the foundation for his own future. Years ago, while on the island of Borneo, Jason Snydmiller learned the super-major he was under contract to would promptly fine any contractor that left oil in local waters. Although it seemed harsh then, the rule was necessary, since locals depended on the water for fishing and prawn farming, among other uses.

“It was then that I started thinking about being able to recover the hydrocarbons from water on a location or lease, and re-using or disposing of the water onsite without contaminating the environment,” says Snydmiller, who admits the climb from rig floor to president of Tangent Environmental Technologies Ltd. has been a long one.
