Dr, Guay often advises consulting firms in soil characterization studies with regards to the fate of sulfur compounds
Roger Guay holds a Ph.D. degree in microbiology from Laval University where he taught fundamental microbiology at School of Medicine and pursued multidisciplinary research works in the following multidisciplinary areas :
- Bacterial resistance to antibiotics,
- Bacterial leaching of metal sulfides, uraniferous and gold ores,
- Bacterial generation of acid mine drainage,
- Biotransformation of inorganic compounds of sulfur,
- Development of prediction method of acid production in sulfur-contaminated soils.
In 1988-89 and 1996-97 he took sabbatical leaves of absence from Laval University respectively at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (Socorro, NM, USA) and at École des Mines d’Alès (France). In 1987, he set up a company, Enviromine inc., active in intervention in mining and industrial environments. Starting in 2004, his expertise at Enviromine inc. mainly relied on carrying out prediction tests on sulfur-containing soils. He often advises consulting firms in soil characterization studies with regards to the fate of sulfur compounds.
