REIMAGINING RESIDUALS FOR 30 YEARS

Back before cell phones and desktop computers, a crazed graduate student believed that residuals could have an inherent value and be managed as products or tools, and that these tools would ultimately solve environmental challenges. That belief resulted in the establishment of SYLVIS Environmental. While SYLVIS has grown into a consulting and contracting firm with offices in western Canada and the United States working with clients around the world, our mission remains the same:

We research, recommend, and implement beneficial residuals management.

Through innovation and reimagining residuals, SYLVIS has reclaimed mineral and aggregate mines, created wetlands and wildlife habitat, improved the quality of marginal land, restored degraded grasslands, and improved soil productivity, all while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing carbon sequestration. We add to scientific knowledge, educate, and increase awareness in opportunities for residuals use in environmental stewardship.

Our success is our people. I get to work alongside SYLVites committed to SYLVIS’s vision and values. This commitment, coupled with their passion for continuous learning, problem-solving, and creativity fosters a beautiful, geeky culture that empowers us to do amazing things for the environment and our clients. Client’s challenges fuel our passion for providing solutions and services that demonstrate environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and economic value simultaneously.

For 30 years SYLVIS has been reimagining, researching, and realizing the value in residuals. Take a stroll through a selection of some of our project profiles.

I cannot wait to see what SYLVIS is able to achieve in the next 30 years!

With 30 years of respect, gratitude, and appreciation.
