Benin, Africa – The $771,715 Cdn grant to Umalia Inc. and Technologies Ecofixe runs from 2017 to 2020 and will allow the two Montreal-area companies to complete a water purification project they began in the community of Sô-Ava in 2014.

David Heurtel, Quebec Minister of Sustainable Development, the Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change, lauded Umalia and Technologies Ecofixe – as well as their project partners – for putting their “creativity and expertise” towards helping the world in the battle against climate change.

Umalia is a Montreal-area consulting firm which specializes in the strategy, planning and implementation of national and international corporate and societal engagement programs, as well as shared value partnerships.

Technologies Ecofixe specializes in the biological treatment of waste water and is using its “bio-augmentation” system to clean the Sô River, thus improving the quality of life of eight nearby villages.
