Envirem Organics' Atlantic Canada Operations are Among the Largest in the Country and Running Strong
Envirem Organics, one of the stops on the Technology Tours at the Atlantic Biorefinery Conference, are the cover story in the most recent Recycling News Magazine. Read the full story here.
Envirem Organics has grown into one of Canada’s largest volume composting operations based on
creating solid industry relationships and higher value products for a wider range of markets.
The company was born out of the construction industry. In 1994, Bob Kiely, the company’s current president and GM, started at Envirem Technologies, Inc., part of a New Brunswick based construction firm involved in contaminated soil remediation. Envirem Technologies then evolved into Envirem Organics in 2010, of which Bob Kiely is founder and owner.
“When I started in organics in 1994, I wanted to do things differently,” explains Kiely, who has a background in civil and environmental engineering. “I wanted to be more of a recycler. A lot of times, in those days with contaminated soils, for example, material was burned, put in a pile and never got to market. Much of it went to landfill. The goal of Envirem was really to create a more full-circle recycling company.”
