A Model Study on Water Soluble Polymeric Nanofibers for Rapid Flocculation and Enhanced Dewatering of Fine Oil Sands Tailings Simulated Through KaolinDownload
Nanofibers are fibers with diameters lower than 100 nm, traditionally made from natural or synthetic polymers. Properties of nanofibers, such as low density, controllable surface functionality, and high surface area to volume ratio, allowed researchers to use them in a multitude of applications...
Processing of oil sands ores to extract bitumen generates large volumes of tailings which are deposited into large settling basins, where the solids settle by gravity over 3-4 years to become mature fine tailings (MFT). Methanogenesis has been correlated with increased water recovery from and...
