Biological Treatment of Naphthenic Acids and Other Organic Compounds in Oil Sands Process-Affected WatersDownload
The Alberta oil sands contain one of the world’s largest reserves of oil - over 169 billion barrels of bitumen are economically recoverable with current extraction technologies. Surface mining, whereby the ore is extricated from the earth and bitumen is obtained via a hot water extraction...
Chemical and Biological Oxidation of Naphthenic Acids - where Stoichiometry, Kinetics and Thermodynamics MeetDownload
Open-pit mining of Alberta’s oil sands deposits heavily depend on freshwater for the extraction of bitumen. It leaves 1.25 m3 oil sands process affected water (OSPW) per barrel of produced oil. In spite of years of research on treatment of OSPW, currently, there are no approved economic and...
Removal of Organic and Inorganic Contaminants from Oil Sands Tailings using Carbon Based Adsorbents and Native SedimentDownload
The extraction and refinement of oil sands bitumen produces substantial quantities of liquid tailings and solid coke. Tailings contain metals and naphthenic acids, which require remediation before mine closure. Adsorption is a potential remediation technique which may reuse stockpiled petroleum...
The remediation of oil sands wastes such as fluid fine tailings (FFT) and oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) are of increasing concern in the oil sands industry. End pit lakes are one remediation option currently being researched at commercial scale in Base Mine Lake (BML) operated by...
