Theo Van Wely

Theo Van Wely

President

AIM Environmental Group’s history began in 1989 when Mr Van Wely’s acquisition of a small waste collection firm lead to the birth of AIM Waste Management Inc. In the 30 years that have followed, Mr Van Wely’s passion for innovative new methods of environmental benefit and rehabilitation has led to continuous growth for AIM.

Partnering with Maple Reinders Group Ltd. in 1990, Mr Van Wely began to focus on recycling within the construction and demolition industries, using roofing materials and waste wood to create asphaltic products and densified biomass for European markets.

This partnership left Mr Van Wely experienced in waste logistics services and transforming C&D materials into recyclable streams, as well as leading him to become an early adopter of remediation technologies for ex-situ and in-situ biological treatment of contaminated soils and groundwater. Mr Van Wely then shifted his focus to seeking out more impactful methods of processing organic waste through biological processes.

This search has defined AIM’s singular focus. Having become a developer and operator of processing infrastructure for both the municipal and private sectors, AIM has forged itself into a leading provider of composts and processed derived fertilizers. They continue to prioritize returning organic matter and biology to the soil.
