Biogenie’s Guaranteed Solution Revives a $15 M Investment Project

LACHENAIE, November 26, 2003 – Biogenie, a firm specializing in site remediation, has been awarded a $3 M contract for the remediation of a brownfield site in the City of Laval on which the largest soccer complex in Canada will be built. To carry out this $15M investment project, Complexe Multisports, a non-profit organization recognized by the City of Laval, chose Biogenie’s proposed remedial solution, the only one providing a performance guarantee. The Quebec Ministry of Environment, Environment Canada and Canada Economic Development are also collaborating in the project. Also, the promoter of the project will benefit from the Quebec government’s Revi-Sols program that will subsidize approximately 50% of the remediation costs.

“What organizations such as Complexe Multisports are most wary of is escalating remediation costs which could jeopardize their investment project. With its know-how, Biogenie is able to propose guaranteed fixed-price remedial solutions which ensure the implementation of an investment project such as this soccer complex” stated Biogenie President, Mr. Benoit Cyr. “Biogenie is proud to have the opportunity to contribute to the construction of the largest soccer complex in Canada, while permitting the revitalization of a site that has been abandoned and unproductive for a long time”, stated Biogenie’s project manager, Mr. Daniel Bergeron.

Scope of the Work

Biogenie will excavate approximately 3,000 tons of hydrocarbon-contaminated soil that will be sent to Solution Eau Air Sol (EAS) Inc., a contaminated soil treatment facility located in Montreal-East. More specifically, the project consists of installing a 600 meter long groundwater interception trench and surface drainage system and, finally, covering the play surface areas with one metre of good quality soil. The interception trench, built upstream from the site, will redirect the groundwater in order to limit the amount of water circulating throughout the site. Finally, an environmental monitoring program, recommended by Biogenie, will complete the project.

Biogenie is a leader in the remediation of contaminated sites. Major North American and European petroleum, petrochemical and utility companies are among its clientele. Biogenie’s distinctiveness lies in its sophisticated tools for 3D mapping of contaminant plumes, its innovative treatment technologies and its ability to carry out large and challenging projects at a fixed-price. In addition to its head office located in Quebec City (Canada), Biogenie has established offices in Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, Philadelphia, Paris and London and maintains a staff of 200.

Biogenie’s anticipated consolidated sales figure for the fiscal year ending in March 2004 is $40 M. Biogenie was granted the 2002 Visionary Firm Award by the Quebec City Chamber of Commerce and the Comptables agréés de Québec. Biogenie was also granted the Quebec-France Business Excellence Award by the Quebec chapter of the French Chamber of Commerce in Canada for its partnership with SEMARDEL, which led to the creation of the first contaminated soil treatment facility (Biocentre) in the Paris metropolitan region. A Phénix de l’environnement was also awarded in Spring 2001 for its export performance.
