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...
Development of Integrated Model for Assessment of Water and GHG Footprints for Power Generation SectorDownload
Freshwater is a critical natural resource and is used in energy production, conversion and utilization. To ensure that the use of water today does not adversely affect the prospects for its use by future generations, there is a need to understand long term water demand and supply through energy...
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...
Life Cycle Assessment of Lignocellulosic Biomass Conversion Pathways to Hydrogenation Derived Renewable DieselDownload
Renewable fuels standards introduced in various jurisdictions aim at increasing the use of biofuels. There has been limited work on the life cycle assessment of the production of HDRD in terms of overall environmental impacts. This study is focused on conducting an LCA on the production of...
Life Cycle Assessment of North American Conventional Crudes for Production of Transportation FuelsDownload
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...
Energy Return on Investment and Techno-economics of Pellet Production from Steam Pretreated BiomassDownload
Utilization of raw ligno-cellulosic biomass for energy use is limited because of its low heating value and low yield per unit area of biomass. Pellets are densified and compressed form of biomass which has less moisture and higher energy density compared to raw biomass. Pellets are typically...
Development of a Decision Making Framework for Solid Waste Management Using GIS-based Site Selection and an Economic ComparisonDownload
The management of municipal solid waste (MSW) is one of the major challenging issues for various global jurisdictions. MSW generation and disposal rates are increasing worldwide along with increased population and urbanization. Limited landfill capacity and long-term environmental issues...
Experimental and Techno-economic Studies of Pipeline Hydro-transport of Agricultural Residue Biomass to a BiorefineryDownload
Pipeline hydro-transport of agricultural residue biomass to bio-based energy facilities, e.g. a bio-refinery, is considered to be a more economically favorable method than truck delivery. Pipeline hydro-transport not only benefits from economy of scale, but also reduces the environmental and...
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...
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...
