CEO & Co-founder, SanEcoTec Ltd.

The AVIVE™ Water Program technologies pioneered by Els and her team not only replace halogenic chemicals with environmentally-friendly hydrogen peroxide at a great benefit to the environment, tax payers love it too! Recently commissioned in Sunnyside, Newfoundland, at a cost 20% of the alternative, conventional proposals – AVIVE™ ended the boil water advisory; reduced undesirable chlorine disinfection by-products by 80%; reduced the flow rate and water wasted by 50%; and reduced auxiliary chemicals and energy required to treat the water. Result: water is now better-than-compliant with Health Canada Guidelines and a proven solution for municipalities historically unable to meet Canadian standards due to lack of resources.
