SHERBROOKE, QC, Nov. 22, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - As part of the Sustainable
Green Chemistry Symposium which was held in Anjou on November 16, the
CQVB handed the first ever Green Chemistry Innovation award, to
Laboratoire M2 of Sherbrooke.
The innovative technology platform developed by Laboratoire M2 has
created a range of natural disinfection products. To date, six products
are marketed and 8 are being developed. The continuous R & D efforts
enable the firm to forge a significant competitive advantage in the
"cleaning" market thanks to a variety of green natural products.
"Laboratoire M2 is honored to receive the 2011 Green Chemistry
Innovation Award from the CQVB. This award recognizes the efforts we
have made since 2003, to develop disinfectants products that fall
within a concept of sustainable development that is globally
recognized" says Serge Auray, president of Laboratoire M2.
Seven innovative projects were submitted for the new Green Chemistry
Innovation Award, highlighting disinfection products, green solvents,
industrial cleaners, grout and mortar systems, industrials films,
resins and therapeutic peptides.
Les Spécialités LEN, Granby, and Produits chimiques Magnus,
Boucherville, where among the finalists. Les Spécialiste LEN have
developed a new cleaning product that is completely biodegradable and
that can replace fossil fuel solvents with products that are non-toxic
and harmless to the health of workers. Produits chimiques Magnus,
meanwhile, have developed a new line of industrial cleaners that safely
clean, remove rust and descale.
A first in Quebec!
Wanting to further stimulate the development of bioproducts, including
green chemistry, in Quebec, the CQVB launched the Green Chemistry Innovation Award. This Award is meant to recognize the innovation capacity of SME's in
Quebec that stand out for the development of new markets in the field
of industrial bioproducts in Quebec as well as internationnally.
