Industry Academic Collaboration

academic metaflo

Industry-academic collaborative research projects can be extremely beneficial, especially for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), as they can provide access to not only intellectual expertise, but more importantly, access to advanced laboratory equipment and low cost labour (students). There are numerous funding routes that are available for industry-academic collaborations, which allow SMEs to better leverage their resources and get the most bang-for-their-buck.

The Dirt Behind our New Product: SoilFLO

soilflo excess soil management moecc application

We have heard the concerns of project owners, contractors, MetaFLO operators and disposal sites about their ability to comply with the new excess soils regulation and the cost of that compliance. That is why we developed SoilFLO, an automated, cost-effective soil tracking software tool that ensures compliance with these new regulations.

Pipeline Construction Process Improvement

Pipeline Construction Process Improvement

Pipeline owners are making incremental work process improvements behind the scenes using MetaFLO’s liquid waste solidification technology. MetaFLO provides technology that facilitates the solidification of liquid waste streams into solid material. Organizations that put pipeline in the ground benefit from this proven technology to manage the drill waste fluids and cuttings generated from this work process.

Municipal Landfills Benefit from MetaFLO Treatment

Municipal Landfills Benefit from MetaFLO Treated Material

MetaFLO’s patented solutions are well aligned with the needs of municipal landfills and present a departure from traditional methods of managing slurry waste streams. Heavy liquid waste streams such as hydro excavation mud or horizontal directional drilling (HDD) fluids can be solidified in the field with a very low dose of MetaFLO reagent reducing carbon footprint, waste volume, cost and risk.

How does MetaFLO do it? Sorption.

Seeing our products work for the first time often gets the same response as a street magician does with a surprising card trick. We at MetaFLO are accustomed to seeing liquids turn into solids before our eyes, but many new clients are not. A first time observation of our solidification capabilities usually leads the observer to ask, “How can that be, how does it work?”

Drill Fluid Disposal More Cost-effective Upstream

Drill Fluid Disposal More Cost-effective Upstream

If you have been following the media recently on the subject of waste soil disposal in Ontario, you will have heard that many ‘clean fill’ dump sites are contaminated with poly-aromatic hydrocarbons, heavy metals and petroleum hydrocarbons. The subject has received comment from Ontario’s Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, Glen Murray, describing the problem as a “serious issue” in Ontario.
