The concept of producing electricity by using a dedicated energy crop has initiated many research projects in the recent past. Triticale, a hybrid between wheat and rye, has gained the attention of researchers as a feasible future energy crop for Canada. The study focuses on the techno-economic...
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are currently at the crux of political, environmental, technological, and cultural discussions due to climate change. A drastic reduction of GHG emissions is needed in order to mitigate potentially catastrophic climate change impacts. This thesis presents the...
The Development of a Framework for the Assessment of Energy Demand-based Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Options for Alberta’s Agriculture SectorDownload
Due to rapid economic expansion, Alberta’s energy sector has witnessed an upsurge in energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The agriculture sector in Alberta ranks second among the Canadian provinces in terms of energy consumption in the agricultural sector nationally. The current...
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...
Techno-economic analysis of the production of pure CO2 from flue gases via the monoethanolamine and ammonia capture processesDownload
Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fuel combustion have contributed to the overall greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Carbon capture is a promising technique that could reduce the emission from power plants with the ever-increasing energy demand. Research into the utilization of CO2 from flue...
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emission is one of the important environmental issues that world is facing today. Biomass usage, specifically capturing energy from biomass that would otherwise decay, is one the of many options available to mitigate the impact of the buildup of GHG emissions from fossil...
With the fluctuations in conventional crude oil production and uncertainty in its global price, alternative sources of liquid fuels from natural gas and coal are being considered. In addition, formulation of policies in several jurisdictions on phase-out of coal power plants due to climate change...
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...
Production of Renewable Diesel from Lignocellulosic biomass through Fast pyrolysis and Hydroprocessing TechnologyDownload
Increasing environmental concerns, global warming, and greenhouse gas emissions due to fossil fuel use point to an urgent need for clean renewable energy sources that can replace petroleum-derived fuels. Lignocellulosic biomass, a renewable resource, can be converted to bio-oil by fast pyrolysis...
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...
