Katrina Patel

BIOGRAPHY

Katrina Patel is a Professional Biologist with nineteen years of industry experience. She is well versed in environmental regulations for British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon, Northwest Territories and the bordering United States. Her background includes emergency spill response, site assessments, remediation of soil, water & air using bacterial amendments, natural bio filters, oxidizers and alternative technologies. Past project experience includes permitting of hazardous treatment facilities, third party file review and implementation of emerging technologies.

Over the years, Katrina has helped people, companies and their insurers respond to a variety of spills in a diverse array of environments. She has used both standard and innovative processes and procedures to protect ecologically sensitive areas while keeping costs to a minimum during environmental incidents. As a coordinator for RBW Waste Management she learned about and educated clients on different spill response supply products such as absorbents, covers, plugging compounds and drive-on pads. With her background in microbial science, she developed and implemented remedial procedures using bacteria to digest contamination in soil and water instead of burying it in landfills or placing it down abandoned wells for future generations to deal with.

In 2010 she incorporated KPI, her own environmental consulting firm, where she was commissioned to develop and test recycled tire as hydrocarbon absorbent material. She used the recycled tire to remediate water and soil for Oil & Gas companies, industrial effluent, and water collection at soil treatment facilities. KPI was hired to permit, develop and operate soil recycling treatment facilities throughout Western Canada. Katrina is also an Incident Commander for insurance companies to lead a team responding to catastrophic spills and clean up sites while under the careful examination of spillers, regulators, property owners and insurance companies.

Katrina is the founder of the Alberta Spill Response Association (ASRA) and Project WIN. ASRA is a not-for-profit group collaborating industry subject matter experts to review and endorse spill training programs such as ProEnviro’s Spill Response Courses. Project Working Interactively towards Non-abuse (WIN) Foundation is also a not-for-profit organization developing an educational video game that will incentivize gamers with real tangible prizes donated by corporations seeking to meet their Environmental Social & Governance mandates. It’s where learning meets gaming and corporations fuel the adventure to go green.

Her designations include:

P.Biol – Professional Biologist, Alberta Society of Professional Biologists

R.P.Bio – Professional Biologist, British Columbia College of Applied Biology

Q.P.Sask. – Qualified Person Certificate Saskatchewan
