The PS2 Wolseley Facility is one of only 2 facilities in Canada
Our approval, includes permission to receive and treat a complete range of materials impacted with chlorinated and non-chlorinated hydrocarbons such as PCBs, dioxins/furans and pesticides, waste paint and other industrial sludge, with hydrocarbon contents up to 70% by volume and pharmaceutical waste.

PS2 was founded in 2004 by a group of proven Canadian environmental entrepreneurs with the singular philosophy that the proper application of advanced clean technology was the safe and economical management to proper management of environmental liability. Combining their extensive national and international experience, over the last 20 years, as experts in the fields of hazardous waste management, remedial technology development, environmental engineering and oilfield environmental protection they created a new benchmark in Canadian waste management.
The technology around which PS2 is built is an internationally proven, Canadian developed indirect thermal extraction system called Thermal Phase Separation (TPS). PS2,whose founders, were part of the original development and commercialization team for the technology, holds the license for North America and China for this unique and patented closed loop system originally designed to extract Persistent Organic Pollutants such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), dioxins and furans and even the infamous Agent Orange from soil. It’s performance since 1996 in this field is unsurpassed both at home and abroad.
In 2007 PS2 merged with West Mountain Capital (TSX-V:WMT) and has since invested significantly in modifications and advancements in the application of this technology allowing PS2 to dramatically expand its operational capabilities. From this investment emerged the patented Pyrolytic Desorption Depolymerization (PDD) Process. In addition to its original capabilities the system is now regularly accessed by clients across North America to safely and efficiently manage petrochemical refining sludge, paint solids and pharmaceutical waste traditionally destined for landfill or incineration. The ability to significantly reduce landfill burden and destroy waste with zero harmful emissions sets PS2 apart. The application of the PDD process to these waste streams to recover usable hydrocarbons sets the bar for the industry just a little higher.
