Phase Separation Solutions ('PS2') , is a wholly owned subsidiary of West Mountain Capital (TSX-V:WMT), that is setting the benchmark standards for the safe, economical and environmentally responsible management of impacted soil and oil based sludge.

Using patented non-incineration technology Phase Separation Solutions (PS2) ,sets the standard for the safe economical and environmentally responsible management of impacted soil and oil based sludge.

Landfill restrictions, public concern over impacted sites, tightening regulations on storage and disposal of waste, increasing liability costs, need to reduce the carbon foot print and a general deepening of corporate environmental responsibility have created a greatly increased demand for more effective and benign management options. 

PS2 offers proven reliability and operational flexibility.  It is unique in North America offering the advantages of a fixed treatment facility with one of the most broad operational approvals for a facility of its type along with the mobile option of deploying the same state-of the-art technology at any site worldwide. Our management team has done this successfully on 5 continents since 1996. 

PS2 maintains the experience and expertise to provide, you, the client with a turnkey solution.  Our team has developed remedial action plans for brownfield sites around the world and carried them through regulatory liaison and public consultation while providing integrated site delineation, excavation and transportation services.  Combining these services with direct access to a treatment facility offers many opportunities for cost savings and more efficient operations.

PS2 was founded in 2004 by a group of proven Canadian environmental entrepreneurs with the singular philosophy that the proper application of advanced clean technology was the safe and economical management to proper management of environmental liability.  Combining their extensive national and international experience, over the last 20 years, as experts in the fields of hazardous waste management, remedial technology development, environmental engineering and oilfield environmental protection they created a new benchmark in Canadian waste management. 

The technology around which PS2 is built is an internationally proven, Canadian developed indirect thermal extraction system called Thermal Phase Separation (TPS). PS2,whose founders, were part of the original development and commercialization team for the technology, holds the license for North America and China for this unique and patented closed loop system originally designed to extract Persistent Organic Pollutants such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), dioxins and furans and even the infamous Agent Orange from soil.  It’s performance since 1996 in this field is unsurpassed both at home and abroad.

In 2007 PS2 merged with West Mountain Capital (TSX-V:WMT) and has since invested significantly in modifications and advancements in the application of this technology allowing PS2 to dramatically expand its operational capabilities.  From this investment emerged  the patented Pyrolytic Desorption Depolymerization (PDD) Process.  In addition to its original capabilities the system is now regularly accessed by clients across North America to safely and efficiently manage petrochemical refining sludge, paint solids and pharmaceutical waste traditionally destined for landfill or incineration.  The ability to significantly reduce landfill burden and destroy waste with zero harmful emissions sets PS2 apart.  The application of the PDD process to these waste streams to recover usable hydrocarbons sets the bar for the industry just a little higher. 

We provide you, the client, with the security, confidence and reliability that you demand when you trust your hard won environmental profile to an industry leader.

The technology, the company and the experience are all mirrored in its Executive Team which is composed of recognized leaders in the field with operational experience spanning 14 countries, on 5 continents over the last 2 decades .
