The Centre technologique des résidus industriels (CTRI) proposes a research approach to businesses and organizations that is directed towards practical and quickly applicable solutions in the context of their waste management operations.
The CTRI offers innovative technological solutions, applied technological research & development and high-tech trials to support businesses that want to find a practical solution to their industrial waste.
CTRI team members have substantial expertise that allows us to satisfy your needs in analytical services and the identification of the best ways to manage your biomass waste. Whether these needs are related to the:
The CTRI ensures rapid, quality service. Highly qualified staff and regular follow-up of our apparatuses ensures the quality of our services.
We provided the CTRI with a modern infrastructure and pilot-scale equipment that allows you to better adopt environmentally friendly processes for the management and valorization of your biomass waste: among others, the CTRI offers you services of:
CTRI staff stands ready to travel to participate in trials or proceed with sampling.
In partnership with Airex Energy, this project allows us to optimize the parameters of biomass torrefaction in the CarbonFX process and the parameters of densification by granulation. We aim to reach maximum energy density as we respect the norms of quality for torrefied biomass pellets. We conducted trials on continuous pilot torrefaction and granulation processes. The CTRI remains the only Quebec Research Centre that offers trials of this kind.
Our experts are there to support you in your approach of the:
CTRI team members have sound expertise that allows you to satisfy your needs in terms of analytical services and the identification of the best avenues to highlight your undervalued minerals:
Whether during the exploration of newly discovered mineral deposits or trials on new reactants or technologies, the CTRI offers you a range of services that allow you to assess the recovery of your metals through laboratory tests or, alternatively, ongoing tests in a semi-industrial plant.
