THE LARGEST TREATMENT SITE IN QUEBEC

Located close to the Great Montreal Area, Northex Environment operates in Contrecoeur a 30 385 m² (650 000 ft²) contaminated soil treatment facility with a capacity exceeding 200 000 tons. This is the largest soil treatment plant in eastern Canada.

Our goal is to recycle 65% of decontaminated soil as fill material in civil engineering works, landscaping and even in various agricultural applications. To reach this ambitious objective, we invest a lot of resources to push the revalorization of treated and decontaminated soil a few steps further.

AVANTAGES
