About Us

Maapera is an environmental services company that is focused on applying advanced sensing and computer automation technology to soil assessment and clean up operations – this field is often called Rapid Soil Analysis Systems

Maapera is actually the Finnish word for “Soil” and our Founder (Preston Sorenson) is of Scandinavian heritage so he thought it would be a great name for a company.

We are a business with a passion and our goal is to reduce the risks and costs associated with our services so that control and remediation of industrial contamination can be done more effectively and with lower costs……we hope this means more of remediation occurs so that the environmental impact of human industry is minimized.

It is currently estimated that over 25% of sites that have been remediated fail an audit in Alberta with similar failure rates expected across North America and we believe this leaves us with an incredible opportunity to have an impact.
