GECA was founded in 2015 by Dr Suzanne Allaire in Quebec city, Canada, after 25 years of R&D in environment and waste, 10 of which were on biochar and pyrolysis. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree, a master’s degree in waste transformation for agricultural purposes, a PhD in soil contamination in California, a post-doctorate degree in water contamination from military wastes in Colorado, she became full professor at Laval University, Quebec in…

  • Agricultural and Environmental science;
  • Developing solutions for wastes into low carbon footprint products;
  • Developing usages for renewable products from wastes;
  • Composting and landfilling;
  • GHG capture from landfills.

During these years, she understood that pyrolysis was one of the most effective ways to recycle carbon, energy and nutrients from non-recyclable wastes and started focusing her work on pyrolysis and biochar. With her team, collaborators and sub-contractors, GECA offers a whole range of services related to biochar and pyrolysis.


GECA’s role is to increase your revenue by
transforming waste while doing good for the planet.

GECA reaches this goal by helping governments and companies find sustainable, socially-acceptable and ecofriendly solutions to avoid landfilling and waste burning, while maintaining excellent return on investment.

Fundamentally, we believe that all by-products generated by human consumption (wastes, residues) have value. There are no residues, only eco-solutions! We look at these by-products in every possible way to find the best innovative and sustainable uses. We challenge ourselves to develop solutions for those so-called “non-recyclable” or “non cost-effective” residues. Pyrolysis and torrefaction make great use of these hard-to-reuse by-products (waste), while reducing carbon footprint and fighting climate change.
