There is a growing need to decrease the viscosity of bitumen using minimal diluent addition to reduce the cost of transportation. However, due to the inherently free radical rich nature of bitumen, even on exposure to low autoxidative conditions adverse effects on the viscosity and hardening of...
Life Cycle Assessment of Transportation Fuels from Canada’s Oil Sands through Development of Theoretical Engineering ModelsDownload
Oil sands in Canada are significant in fulfilling the current and the future energy demands of North America. The development of these resources, besides the increased awareness in global carbon management, has given way to various policy regulations such as the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS)...
Natural Zeolite Catalysts for the Integrated Cracking, Waterless Extraction and Upgrading of Oilsands BitumenDownload
Canadian oilsands bitumen represents one of the largest petroleum reserves in the world, but extraction of that resource raises significant environmental, operational and quality-related challenges. Current extraction processes are water intensive, generating high volume tailings ponds that are...
The growing interest in the oilsands bitumen reserves, a large portion of which is unattainable by current industrial processes, has generated a need for an improved process for oilsands extracting and upgrading. The effects of using chabazite as a catalyst for cracking and upgrading of oilsands...
Agglomerate formation is a common phenomenon that can cause operating problems in the fluid coking reactor. When agglomerates form they provide longer diffusion paths of the reaction products through the liquid layers and liquid bridges within the agglomerate, which leads to higher mass transfer...
