Marcotte Consulting Announcement

At the Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Ozone Depleting Substances held in December 2005 in Dakar Senegal, Michelle Marcotte was confirmed as a co-chair of the Methyl Bromide Technical Options Committee (MBTOC).

MBTOC is the expert committee that recommends the appropriateness of the remaining continued critical uses of methyl bromide and provides assessments of the availability, technical efficacy and economic viability of methyl bromide alternatives in agriculture, food processing and other uses. The work of this committee of over 40 scientists and technical experts world wide contributes to Montreal Protocol decisions and to the improvement of the ozone layer.

Michelle Marcotte, a founding member of MBTOC, has helped manage the post-harvest sub-committee for several years, most recently as convenor. Originally named to the committee for her expertise in food irradiation, an alternative to some of the commodity uses of methyl bromide, she has since developed expertise in pest control in stored commodities and food processing facilities.

As MBTOC co-chair, Michelle also becomes a member of the Technical and Economic Assessment Panel of the Montreal Protocol, the organizing and managing Panel for all the Montreal Protocol technical options committees. This is a part time position, financially supported by the Government of Canada; Michelle will continue business as usual in her American and Canadian consulting companies.
