Methanogenesis in oil sands tailings: an analysis of the microbial community involved and its effects on tailings densificationDownload
Densification of tailings slurries to mature fine tailings (MFT) is important in the oil sands industry for tailings inventory reduction, pore water recovery and tailings reclamation. The cause of methane release from the tailings pond of Shell Albian Sands (Albian) and the effects this process...
Presented herein is a solid-state 71Ga and 69Ga NMR study of several six-coordinate gallium-oxygen compounds: Ga(acac)3, Ga(thd)3, Ga(trop)3, and (NH4)3[Ga(cit)2]·4H2O. Spectra of stationary and magic angle spinning (MAS) samples are reported, and their electric field gradient (EFG) and chemical...
Surface mining for bitumen extraction results in production of tailings that are deposited into large ponds. Tailings in the ponds support diverse microbial communities capable of metabolizing organic compounds and producing biogenic gases (methane, CH4 and carbon dioxide, CO2). Because of low...
