Review of Health Effects of Naphthenic Acids: Data Gaps and Implications for Understanding Human Health RiskDownload
Oil sands mining involves removal of water from the Athabasca River basin in northeastern Alberta. Water produced during the extraction of bitumen from oil sands is referred to as oil sands process water (OSPW). Information on the likelihood of human exposure to OSPW derived naphthenic acids...
Carbon and Nitrogen Mineralization and Microbial Succession in Oil Sands Reclamation Soils Amended with Pyrogenic CarbonDownload
Land reclamation of oil sands disturbed boreal forests in Alberta is a challenging task facing companies with surface mine leases. The government requires reclamation to equivalent land capability, which is a vague statement at best. Agronomic theories and methodologies have been applied in the...
The North American beaver (Castor canadensis) is a large semi-aquatic rodent that has played a central role in shaping the Canadian boreal landscape, and colonial Canadian history. Exploitation of North American beaver populations to supply the European hat industry spurred the westward...
The purpose of this report is to use a design of experiment (DOE) approach to examine the main factors affecting the determination of methylene blue index (MBI) values for oil sands samples. The methylene blue titration of clays has become a principle tool to assess extraction efficiency of oil...
Risk and Uncertainty in Oil Sands Upland Reclamation: Best Management Practices within the Context of Climate ChangeDownload
The focus of most climate change impact studies to date is on changes related to mean climate conditions. In terms of climate model output, these changes are more robust than changes in climate variability, the latter of which has considerably greater uncertainty. By concentrating on climate...
The overall objective of this project is to develop a framework that integrates risk management and strategic decision-making to evaluate the impact of disturbance (natural and industrial) on ecosystem products and services, and on habitat availability for terrestrial species in Alberta’s Lower...
As one of its last projects, the Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) conducted this survey of oil sands environmental management research and information needs. The survey was conducted in October and early November 2014 for OSRIN by the University of Alberta’s Population Research...
The rapid expansion of oil sands activities and massive energy requirements to extract and upgrade the bitumen have led to a need for more comprehensive understanding of their potential environmental impacts, particularly on air quality. There are many oil sands developments and natural sources...
Development of a Novel Engineered Bioprocess for Oil Sands Process-Affected Water and Tailings Fines/Bitumen/Water SeparationDownload
The oil sands bitumen extraction process results in the creation of waste products including oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) and mature fine tailings (MFT). Many technologies are currently under investigation to treat these waste products that are currently contained in vast storage...
