Rehabilitation of degraded sites

Viridis offers a turnkey service based on the needs and characteristics of the degraded site. The company relies on a multidisciplinary team in its rehabilitation of mining sites, former landfill sites, and quarries and sand pits that are shutting down. It applies its expertise and services to help clients find economical and sustainable solutions.

The use of FRMs makes it possible to design much more economical projects than those based on traditional methods, while at the same time offering a swift and effective way to recreate a sustainable vegetation cover. In addition to valorizing the site and helping to improve the landscape, the work done by Viridis also helps to control erosion through a permanent vegetation cover.

The rehabilitation work done by Viridis is designed to quickly restore the site ecosystems. Some of the work also helps to control sources of nuisances such as dust, odours and noise.

Disposal of type A-B soils

A new solution for disposal. The Viridis team proposes efficient solutions, adapted to your needs, to help reduce your cost of disposing of A and B soils, in compliance with the Land Protection and Rehabilitation Regulations, and to make disposal choices that have positive environmental impacts.

Viridis’ technical services are simple, efficient and ecological, ensuring that your project will be quickly approved (nature of the contamination, soil characteristics, estimated volumes).

Fertilization of forest plots

Recycling in forest settings involves applying a fertilizing residual materials (FRM) such as pulp and paper or municipal biosolids, for instance, to existing or even new tree plantations. The FRMs help with the planting and the growth of the trees.

Since 2009, Viridis has recycled more than 150,000 tonnes of FRMs in forest settings in connection with the planting of hybrid poplars, in collaboration with pulp and paper industries. Thanks to its expertise in this field, Viridis can provide its customers professional services in regard to the supply, management, technical support and environmental monitoring of the use of FRMs in forest settings.

That type of work requires an authorization from the ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques (MELCC). According to the MELCC, recycling organic waste is the best way, from the environmental point of view, of disposing of such waste. It entails lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to landfill disposal, and promotes the growth of trees, which for their part capture GHGs, providing a twofold advantage. By complying with regulatory requirements and proper agronomic practices, FRM recycling in forest settings represents a highly economical means of fertilization and a global solution for the management of organic waste that poses negligible risks to the environment. The approach contributes to the MELCC’s 2020 goal of zero organic waste to landfills.
