This work is focused on development of tungsten carbide-based materials as alternative anodes for direct utilization of methane in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). Not only were the capabilities of the anodes highlighted, but the challenges were also stressed. First, the impact of porous support...
Accelerated climate warming of Canada’s sparsely vegetated high Arctic has resulted in rapid environmental changes including loss of glacial ice, permafrost thaw, decreased snow cover and changing plant communities. These responses are causing mostly unknown changes to the natural cycling of the...
Review of Technologies for the Characterization and Monitoring of VOCs, Reduced Sulphur Compounds and CH4Download
The overall goal of this project is to better understand the advantages and limitations of air emission pollutant characterization and monitoring techniques from area sources. This will allow for the selection of current technologies that are most suitable for measuring fugitive emissions of air...
Reservoir and geomechanical coupled simulation of CO2 sequestration and enhanced coalbed methane recoveryDownload
Coalbeds are an extremely complicated porous medium with characteristics of heterogeneity, dual porosity and stress sensitivity. In the past decades great achievements have been made to the simulation models of pressure depletion coalbed methane (CBM) recovery process and CO2 sequestration and...
Reducing GHG emissions through genetic improvement for feed efficiency: Effects on economically important traits and enteric methane productionDownload
Genetic selection for residual feed intake (RFI) is an indirect approach for reducing enteric methane (CH4) emissions in beef and dairy cattle. RFI is moderately heritable (0.26 to 0.43), moderately repeatable across diets (0.33 to 0.67) and independent of body size and production, and when...
Methane (CH4) is a greenhouse gas with an elevated global warming potential (GWP) equivalent to 28 times that of CO2. Also, production of enteric CH4 results in a 2 to 12% loss of the gross energy intake of cattle thus knowing the amount of CH4 released to the environment is important. The...
Abstract: Global warming and the resultant increase in evapotranspiration might lead to lowered water tables in peatlands and an increase in fire frequency. The objective of this study was to investigate some of the potential effects of these changes on peat decomposition. Dry mass losses and...
As a follow-up method after CHOPS (Cold Heavy Oil Production with Sands), CSI (Cyclic Solvent Injection) was widely accepted in the oil industry. After injected gas solvents with high pressure are dissolved in a heavy-oil reservoir, produced oil shows dispersed gas-phase in the oil, which is...
