Uncertainty in Life Cycle Assessments of Well-to-Wheel Greenhouse Gas Emissions of Transportation Fuels Derived from Various Crude OilsDownload
Growing concern over climate change has created pressure on the oil and gas industry to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Several life cycle assessment (LCA) studies have examined various crude oils in an attempt to determine which have the lowest and highest well-to-wheel (WTW) GHG...
Public policy plays a major role in defining societal programs and frameworks, including issues related to environmental protection. Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) offers a tool to provide comprehensive environmental impact information that can be applied within the public policy development...
Energy storage systems (ESSs) play a key role in the implementation of sustainable energy. However, the life cycle cost, energy use, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which are important decision factors for their implementation, has received limited attention. For this reason, the economic and...
Techno-economic and Life Cycle Assessments of Oil Sands Products and Liquefied Natural Gas Supply Chains from Canada to Asia-Pacific and EuropeDownload
The diversification of Canadian oil sands and natural gas markets is imperative for their long-term economic growth. In order to ensure a competitive spot in the natural gas and oil global market, it is considerably important for Canada to supply its natural gas and oil at a competitive price...
Hydrogenation-derived renewable diesel (HDRD) is a promising alternative fuel due to its excellent low-temperature properties, cetane number, and similarity to fossil diesel. Using Alberta as a basis, data-intensive techno-economic models and life cycle assessment models were developed to...
The overall objective of this study is to develop techno-economic models for the assessment of power generation cost and optimum power plant size using forest residues as feedstock in Alberta. At the optimum size of the plant, the cost of generation of power is minimum. In this research two...

Global energy demand is expected to grow substantially and will lead to increased production of crude oil from various sources. The production of crude oil and it’s conversion to transportation fuels result in the release of greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere. As one of the highest...
This study has investigated the life cycle of three biomass feedstocks including forest residue, agricultural residue, and whole forest for biohydrogen and biopower production in Alberta. Three technologies are studied for biohydrogen production; these include the Battelle Columbus Laboratory...
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Oil Sands-Derived Transportation Fuels Produced from the Vapor Solvent-Based Extraction ProcessDownload
Oil sand is a mixture of sand, clay, water, bitumen and other minerals. Production of transportation fuels like gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, etc. from the oil sands reserved in deep underground reservoirs require external stimulant to lower the viscosity of bitumen. The established thermal...
