SOFAME Technologies Inc.

Sofame was founded in 1984 by Luc Mandeville and Michel Dallaire. Its first product was the Launrec RBT, a waste water heat recovery system, designed for laundries and dyers. In 1994, the Company obtained its patent for the Hybrid Percomtherm and stood out as the world`s first manufacturer of a technology producing energy by direct contact in addition to recovering thermal effluents. Sofame further developed markets for industrial process water heating and heating of institutional and multiple-unit rental buildings. The year 1997 marked a turning point for Sofame as it was listed on a public stock exchange in Canada. These objectives are targeted at altering best practices all-around the world and taking means necessary to allow for these modifications to become recognized globally.

SOFAME Technologies Inc. custom engineers, manufactures and installs unique, high-efficiency direct-contact heat recovery, hot water heating and NOx reduction systems.  Sofame’s products extract up to 99% of heat from flue gases depending on the application, and also from wastewater, and return the energy in the form of high temperature hot water and pre-heated make-up air. In addition to economically recovering heat from waste energy, Sofame’s products also help customers to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Using world leading patented green technology, the Company serves building owners, institutional, industrial and commercial markets through a network of dedicated independent manufacturer's representatives.

Sofame is currently listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol SDW.  In 1997, Sofame also obtained a patent for its Ultra-High Efficiency water heater, of which it is still the world'S only authorized manufacturer. In 1999, Sofame achieved a breakthrough in the European market. Its first major contract was the installation of a Percotherm on the site of the Gaz de France Montoire de Bretagne LNG terminal.

In 2004, and again in 2011 ASHRAE recognized SOFAME's outstanding technology by a second award for technology innovation. In the last 20 years,  500 SOFAME units have been installed.
