Enviro-Stewards Inc., Engineers & Scientists: Environmental Compliance Assistance

By: Enviro-stewards  09-12-2011

Enviro-Stewards can save you money and reduce project complexity by taking a Pollution Prevention approach rather than a typical end-of-pipe approach.

Our Approach

Compliance work typically includes:

  • Assessing baseline conditions;
  • Identifying & quantifying opportunities to reduce loadings at source;
  • Preparing a design basis and feasibility assessment of treatment options;
  • Pilot-scale testing (if necessary); and
  • Design, installation, commissioning, and technical support assistance.

Access Incentives

  • Subsidy programs do not typically extend to assistance with environmental compliance (as facilities are already legally required to comply).

Address Problem Drivers

  • Regulatory drivers include: 
    - Municipal/Regional (sanitary & storm sewer bylaws);
    – Provincial/State (effluent wastewater & air discharge Certificates of Approval (C of A), air emission & hazardous waste reporting); and
    – Federal (Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) notices, National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) reporting).
  • Market advantage can be obtained by avoiding publicity associated with non-compliance and reducing emissions to below reporting thresholds (see Trimac case study).
  • Most corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs include compliance with applicable environmental legislation as a baseline requirement.  Some require developed world environmental compliance standards to be applied in facilities located in the developing world.

Enviro-Stewards Inc., Engineers & Scientists: Water Conservation

Water utility providers are beginning to realize that it is less expensive to co-fund water conservation assessment and implementation work than to source and treat new water supplies. Although the actual mass of effluent contaminants remains unchanged, the resulting higher concentrations can exceed municipal bylaw effluent discharge limits.


Enviro-Stewards Inc., Engineers & Scientists: Energy Efficiency

Our proven work phases identify and quantify opportunities to eliminate or reduce consumption, then to improve efficiency, and finally to optimize supply. Electrical and thermal energy are frequently the most expensive utilities at commercial and industrial facilities. Returns on investment range from 6 months to 2 years, with many utilities offering co-funding assistance.
