that year, however, PS2 decided to divest it to focus its resources on the Wolseley facility, in response to

the eontaminated soil market that had opened up significantly since the acquisition. The soil treatment

market in Canada received a big boost in late 2008, when the federal government introduced new

regulations that established deadlines for ending the use and long-term storage of both PCBs and products

containing PCBs. The new regulations also required that these products be sent for destruction by the end

of 2009 (later extended to 2011). Such a policy change resulted in a strong demand for PS2's TPS

technology: subsequent to this announcement, PS2 secured contracts for 2009 and into 2010, utilizing 80

per cent of its capacity at its Wolseley facility.
