Life cycle assessment (LCA) is becoming a popular tool to quantify environmental impacts including greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Because of the high number of assumptions and low quality of available data, the results of LCA are often viewed with skepticism. It is common for studies to provide...
Economic and Environmental Assessment of Large-scale Electro-chemical and Flywheel Energy Storage Systems for Stationary ApplicationsDownload
There are few cost and environmental feasibility assessments of energy storage systems for utility-scale applications. The development of techno-economic and environmental performance indicators is crucial to make an informed decision on future development and deployment of energy storage...
The Role of Industrial Energy Efficiency and Fuel Switching as Pathways to Net-Zero Emissions in the Canadian Pulp and Paper SectorDownload
Industrial decarbonization is a critical challenge along the pathway to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at a sufficient scale and pace to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. The intrinsic energy- and emissions-intensive nature of heavy industry has led to the recognition that...
Concerns about the climate and the need for energy security motivate the shift towards sustainable means of energy production. Biorefineries are facilities that convert biomass into material and energy products. Biorefineries are a key component of ensuring increased sustainability of the global...
Life cycle environmental and economic assessments of zeolite 13X-based space heating systemsDownload
The important role of a heat storage system in the transition to a low carbon economy is widely acknowledged in scientific literature. In cold regions like Canada, where fossil-based space heating systems are widely used, the associated greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) are a major concern. The use...
An Assessment of the Penetration of Low Carbon Technologies in the Energy Demand and Supply SectorsDownload
The penetration of emerging low carbon energy technologies in the energy sector can provide significant opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. An assessment of the market penetration of energy technologies can also help us understand their future adoption, which is critical in...
Life cycle environmental and techno-economic assessments of monocrystalline titanium dioxide nanorod-based perovskite solar cellsDownload
Kukkikatte Ramamurthy Rao, Harshadeep
There is an increased interest in utilization of solar energy for power generation. A lot of research effort is being put to improve the efficiency of solar cells. Perovskite architectures that use titanium dioxide nanorods as electron transport layers have been proven to have enhanced...
Rapid population growth and booming urbanization play an active role in world fuel demand. Today, primary fuel resources like coal and petroleum fulfill most of the energy supply and are the leading contributors to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Biomass-based fuel technology can play a crucial...
Assessment of Greenhouse Gas Emission Mitigation Potential and Abatement Costs of Alternative Technology Options for Oil SandsDownload
In the last several decades societies have gained an increasing level of awareness and scientific understanding of the impact of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on average global temperatures and the negative results of those temperatures increasing. Many governments, including...
Assessment of co-processing hydrodeoxygenated fast pyrolysis oil and vacuum gas oil in a fluid catalytic cracking unitDownload
The production of liquid biofuels from lignocellulosic biomass feedstock (e.g. forest biomass) has received special attention because these biofuels are carbon neutral, have flexible production and upgrading processes, and can be produced from feedstock that is widely available. The major...
