Tailings ponds contain significant amounts of organic contaminants that cannot be released to the environment without further treatment. The use of mature fine tailings (MFT) was proposed as a potential source of microorganisms for biological treatment to remove dissolved organic compounds from...
The oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) generated from bitumen extraction of oil sands by industries in Northern Alberta, Canada, is a great environmental concern because of the OSPW toxicity in the environment. This toxicity has been attributed to a group of alicyclic and aliphatic compounds...
The objective of this study was to determine if there was any difference in the bioremediation of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) and to quantify and identify bacteria present in different scenarios. Two reactors were compared in this study: an acetic acid amended OSPW bioreactor, (AAAO...
Non-linear reparameterization of complex models with applications to a microalgal heterotrophic fed-batch bioreactorDownload
Good process control is often critical for the economic viability of large-scale production of several commercial products. In this work, the production of biodiesel from microalgae is investigated. Successful implementation of a model-based control strategy requires the identification of a model...
