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...
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...
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...
The oil sands are a critical source of unconventional fossil fuel. The Canadian oil sands are among the world’s largest crude oil deposits. Several oil sands extraction techniques have been developed in recent decades, including solvent-steam based bitumen extraction technology, an emerging...
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...
The increasing energy demand, dependency on fossil fuels, reduction in their reserves, and rise in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have drawn global attention toward a more viable alternative, such as biofuels produced from agricultural residue biomass, which is an abundantly available type of...
