Rubidium Environmental – The Best Environmental Consultants in Ontario
Results. Experience. Technical Innovation.
That’s what sets Rubidium Environmental apart from every other environmental consultant. We understand our clients because we understand your operations and the challenges you face. Our environmental consultants come from a group of engineers and scientists that came from industries where they worked on manufacturing lines, research & development labs, designing process equipment, and process automation. We at Rubidium Environmental can use our environmental consulting services to help your company save both time and money when dealing with forms like the Ontario environmental compliance approval application. As environmental consultants, we have the expertise to assist you in managing the environmental regulations your company is obligated to adhere to. Whether Federal, Provincial, and Municipal level of environmental regulations, our environmental consultants have the expertise you need to solve your environmental compliance challenges. Environmental reporting can be a tedious and daunting task depending on the size and type of your company. The environmental consultants at Rubidium Environmental can not only help you with all the forms your company is required to fill out, they can also complete the entire submission for you, saving you even more time.
In 2011, the Certificate of Approval changed and now comes in two forms; the Environmental Compliance Approval and the Environmental Activity Sector Registry. In Ontario, environmental compliance approvals are required by any company who is creating a by-product and releasing it into the air. Our environmental consultants are well rehearsed in the 46 page form and will help ensure that your company is abiding by the environmental regulations set by the government.

The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) has divided Ontario into five regions; Northern Region, Eastern Region, Central Region, West Central Region, and South-western Region. Each region is responsible for overseeing environmental compliance and enforcement making it easier to ensure that companies are adhering to the regulations required for Ontario environmental compliance approvals. Within each region, there are various districts supervised by officers who act as contact for your facility to the MOECC.
Environmental district officers are also important in developing a good relationship with the MOECC. A good working relationship with your district officer will enable you to reach out for help when needed. If you don’t know who your district officer is, it is important to reach out. A link to the MOECC’s district offices can be found here.
Our goal as environmental consultants is to provide value to your operation while adhering to environmental regulations. Let’s face it, complying with environmental regulations doesn’t often add value to your organization or money to your bottom line. In fact, it is quite often a cost of doing business, but it doesn’t have to be. Our environmental consulting services are designed with added value in mind. Through identification of cost saving measures, our environmental consultants are trained to help find opportunities to make our projects pay for themselves. While our mandate might be to perform an air quality assessment, we will identify ways in which to reduce operating cost of pollution control equipment. Whether its identifying opportunities to reclaim process heat, implement water conservation measures, optimize combustion efficiency, or process automation, our team has the proven experience to help.
Through environmental reporting programs like the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI), and the Toxics Reduction Act (TRA) our environmental consultants have gained significant insight into the raw material, and waste streams from our clients. Like the old age saying “one person’s waste is another person’s treasure”, we help our clients identify opportunities for waste diversion; turning something that was once destined for landfill or hazardous material treatment into a revenue stream.
From our head office in Burlington, Ontario, we are positioned to help our clients located around the province, and across Canada. We provide services that will benefit the environment as well as your company. The majority of facilities will be required to fill out the forms necessary to receive environmental compliance approval in Ontario. Without an environmental compliance approval, your facility will be faced with shutting down and thus, lose production time. Rubidium Environmental can prevent this from happening by sending some of the most experienced environmental consultants in Ontario to assess your situation. Our highly skilled staff will be able to ensure your company is abiding by all set environmental regulations while recognizing and picking out ways for your company to save money.
We at Rubidium Environmental are able to adapt to the needs of our clients. If you would rather learn how to fill out the forms for your facility, we are able to offer customized environmental, health & safety training courses tailored to your specific needs.
