2013 TechGREEN Award
Chris McCue was presented with the 2013 TechGREEN Award (Corporation) from the Applied Scientists, Technicians and Technologists of BC at an awards gala on November 2, 2013. The TechGREEN is granted to an ASTTBC member, corporation or organization contributing to a ‘green’ economy and sustainable society. It recognizes those who take a lead role or have a substantial involvement in initiatives that have a positive impact on green living, sustainable best practices, energy conservation and environmental benefit.
McCue was recognized for delivering industry-leading technology in mine & industrial water treatment, and in situ remediation of contaminated land. McCue’s approach to contaminated land remediation involves the treatment of contaminated soil, soil vapour and groundwater in situ (in place) or the recovery of contaminated soil vapour, groundwater and free product for on site treatment ex situ (on the surface). Managing contaminated land in this manner is considered green remediation when compared to other remediation practices such as dig & dump. To further this effort, McCue has received three rounds of funding from the federal government’s Industrial Research Assistance Program for innovation in water treatment technology.
