           the other for treating gas generated through food processing waste
           by a leading Canadian food manufacturer-have increased awareness
           of the need for, and the availability of, environmental
           technology. Eco-Tec is a recent, two-time award-winner of the
           Ontario Global Traders Award as well as the Canadian Innovation
           Award for Environmental Technology. As a Canadian manufacturer
           thriving in an ever-fluctuating economic environment, Eco-Tec is
           proud to be able to present its capabilities and show how one
           company can bring economic value and international recognition to
           both Ontario and Durham Region.
