WHAT WE DO
Industrial Climate Solutions Inc. (ICS) is a Canadian company whose roots run deep in industrial and commercial innovation.
The company develops and commercializes industrial breakthrough process equipment and technologies to address greenhouse gas emissions. Transformative technologies have many applications in areas outside of the climate file, so we work with partners to develop these 'non-core' applications and markets.
The company was co-founded by Richard Adamson and Jeff Pallister, with seventy years of advancing industrial and commercial innovation between them, and Westec Environmental Solutions LLC of Kahului, Hawai'i (WES), in part to move their strong patent portfolio into the market.
Subsequently, in Q3 of 2018, ICS acquired the assets of WES, including their intellectual property portfolio and the contents of the Maui lab. At that time Bill Hargroves and Roy Pellegrin joined the ICS team.
WES - A DECADE OF BREAKTHROUGH THINKING
Building on earlier particle control work commercialized under a predecessor company, Peletex, the team took on a challenge under an Office of Navy Research contract with Sandia National Laboratories for particulate and gas contaminant filtering in extreme particulate loading conditions.
The system proved successful and was identified by the US Patent & Trademarks office as one of the Most Outstanding Inventions of 2007.
Adapted to CO2 capture, the WES technology went on to win the Iberdrola Perseo Award for 2010 in the field of "Technologies for Capture and Storage of CO2 and Clean Combustion" among several other recognitions.
