64 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE VOLUME 9, ISSUE 3 AT A GLANCE KINGSTON PROCESS METALLURGY (KPM) WHAT: An integrated chemical process development company WHERE: Headquarters in Kingston, Ontario WEBSITE: KINGSTON PROCESS METALLURGY (KPM) O ff the eastern shore of Lake Ontario and at the beginning of the St. Lawrence River is the idyllic city of Kingston, Ontario. Lying midway between Toronto, Ontario, and Montreal, the Limestone City, as residents fondly refer to it, is quickly becoming a hub for cleantech and chemtech in North America. In the heart of this burgeoning Technopolis is a rapidly growing chemtech company called Kingston Process Metallurgy (KPM), an integrated chemical process development company with clients in France, Japan, South Africa, Brazil, England, Australia, Chile, Mexico, U.S., and others. Boyd Davis is Principal, Project Development, and co-owner alongside Alain Roy, Principal, Operations. Davis believes some of the most significant economic challenges we face today, like climate change and resource scarcity, can be solved through chemistry when properly guided by economics and design. He reports, “KPM is not unique in terms of what we do, but we are rare in how we give direction to a project. Many companies operate labs and have their clients interpret the results. We combine economic projections with a strong technical base to work out the processes on paper and give guidance into what lab work needs to be done. Then we can do targeted lab work that gives clarity to the process.” G LOB A L S OL U T I ON S F OR C L E AN T E CH
