Scenario-Based Assessment and Projection of Water Use for the Canadian Oil and Gas Sector and Several Low-carbon Technologies Available to the Oil SandsDownload
The Canadian oil and gas sector is a significant contributor to Canada’s economy, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and water use. Society is increasingly focused on GHG emissions, and it is broadly recognized that GHG reductions in the oil and gas sector have an important role in Canada’s meeting...
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...
Planning for net-zero GHG emissions by 2050: Moving from technical feasibility assessments to actionable analysisDownload
Researchers with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predict that the net flux of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must reach zero by 2050 to limit global warming to 1.5°C within this century. This target requires that all GHG emissions resulting from human activity...
This study experimentally evaluated wheat straw slurry pipelines. Tests were conducted to determine the particle properties of the biomass mixed in water over time. The saturated particle density of 1,060kg/m3 was reached after 24 hours, while the saturated moisture contents of 78.5% and 79.5%...
Meeting the objectives of the Paris Agreement requires society to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions levels in every sector. Waste management has a key role in achieving these objectives and is fundamental for sustainable growth. Some municipal solid waste (MSW) streams have the potential for...
Life cycle environmental and techno-economic assessments of monocrystalline titanium dioxide nanorod-based perovskite solar cellsDownload
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...
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...
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...
