On September 13, Canada's Minister of Industry, the Honourable Jim Prentice, presented Ground Effects Environmental Services with a Canadian Innovation Leader certificate in Regina, Saskatchewan. The company is a leader in soil remediation and environmental clean-up technologies.

CEO Sean Frisky credits NRC for playing a role in the company's success. "The support we received from NRC-IRAP helped Ground Effects to carry out the required research and development to bring EK3 [a new salt remediation process] to market, and without the advice we received from NRC-IRAP, this project would not yet be complete and out in the field, cleaning up our environment."
