The money comes from the annual budget of $ 7 million the provincial government gives annually to the City of Quebec to encourage projects of economic development and innovation. These are 21 and 22 projects supported by the technology showcase, said Mayor Régis Labeaume at a news conference Tuesday, a program allowing local businesses to use equipment and operations of the city to test their new products.
The company ABB, which has a budget of $ 253,000, will test five industrial products developed and manufactured in the Old Capital. Thus, using technologies related to optics, it will attempt to measure real-time emissions from the incinerator, a process that could eventually greatly simplify the extent of such data.
ABB will also test any of its products to detect, again in real time, the oil in the water. A product whose prospects are interesting to measure the minute the water quality of a place where swimming could be permitted, said Mr. Labeaume. He said this, however, had no connection with the software to be developed by Laval University to verify and predict the water quality at the Baie de Beauport.
3D and 2D measurement tools will also be tested to calculate, for example, the exact amount of salt and a lot of the materials marching through a provider.
Solucycle company, which in addition to using $ 252,000 will inject $ 85,000 into the project, a test of organic recovery process in the residential building EcoCondo Origin of Pointe-aux écoquartier hares in Limoilou.
Waste tables will be ground to even the kitchen sink and taken to an underground collection tank. Ultimately, the materials will be sent to a biogas plant, but like that of Quebec is not yet built, they will be transported to composting centers. This process would recover 100% of the organic waste.
This project, a first in a multi-residential building to Solucycle, include an assessment of the technology, especially in the corners of the environmental and economic dimensions, as well as social acceptability.
