A life cycle assessment of OME (oxymethylene ether) synthesis from biomass-derived syngas as a diesel additiveDownload
The life cycle energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission performances of forest biomass-derived oxymethylene ether (OME) synthesis used as a diesel additive are analyzed in this study. OME, a new alternative liquid fuel, has great miscibility with conventional fuels like diesel. OME...
SSHRC Awarded PDG 2020: Impact assessments (IA) are a crucial tool in the management of disruptions to our climate, ecosystems and communities generated by economic development. Given the growing concerns about the sustainability of socio-ecological systems in Canada and globally, IAs are rightly...
Aesthetic Economies of Growth; Energy, Value, and the Work of Culture After Oil offers a cultural history of energy after the industrialization of fossil fuels. My argument is that the political economy of fossil fuels, and the climate change it generates, is anchored to energy’s aesthetic...
An Integrated Approach for Sustainability Assessment: The Wa-Pa-Su Project Sustainability Rating SystemDownload
As global demand for energy continues to rise, unconventional petroleum extraction and production of petroleum substitutes are both becoming more necessary. Development and operation of unconventional oil projects can have considerable social, economic, and environmental impacts. For example, one...
This study develops the water requirement factors for different thermo-chemical and biochemical biomass conversion pathways for production of biofuels and biopower. Twelve biomass conversion pathways based on six biomass feedstocks are assessed. For all these pathways integrated water and...
Development of an experimental setup for measuring vacuum decay in dual-wall fiber-reinforced composite pipesDownload
Thermal management and energy input are required to maintain working fluids, i.e., liquefied natural gas, liquid nitrogen, and multi-phase fluids within their optimal working conditions. Increasing a pipes’ thermal resistance, e.g., utilizing vacuum insulation, is one method of minimizing energy...
The effects of broiler breeder dietary energy and protein during rearing and dietary energy level of lay diets on egg composition, offspring performance and carcass yield were evaluated. Pullets were fed a diet containing high ME (2,736 kcal/kg; HEREAR), or low ME (2,528 kcal/kg; LEREAR) combined...
The extraction of bitumen (heavy oil) from the oil sands is predominantly achieved through a water-based technology. This involves a slurrying process, typically called conditioning, which is categorized into three equally important steps: bitumen-sand liberation, bitumen coalescence, and...
Employee Attitudes on Corporate Social Responsibility at the Frontline Level of an Energy Transportation CompanyDownload
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) reflects the commitment businesses voluntarily undertake to integrate ethical behaviors and societal matters within their operating contexts, decision-making processes, strategies and corporate values while simultaneously maximizing economic objectives. As...
