“When we were a new company in the Nova Scotia waste landscape, Divert NS was there to support Oberland Agriscience with a VAM project. Oberland needed to reach industrial scale process within our pilot facility, Divert NS and the VAM project support provided leveraged funding for procurement of large-scale industrial equipment. However, Oberland did not just benefit from generous financial support, but also with introductions to key stakeholders in the space. We met valuable government, consultant and industry representatives through Divert NS. Three years after our initial introduction to Divert NS and we still touch base with the staff regularly, they are a value-add part of our support team. We definitely recommend Divert NS to other companies.”
