The colonization of limestone bricks and bitumen coated limestone bricks by benthic river organisms was followed over time. After nine weeks of colonization, no massive increase in the numbers of bacteria on the bitumen was noted, suggesting that degradation was not proceeding rapidly. However,...
Fat, oil, and grease (FOG) in wastewater can cause foul odor, sewer line blockage, and may interfere with sewage treatment. FOG control is approached with physical, chemical, and biological methods Many cities, including Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, have effectively applied commercial biological...
Biological Treatment of Naphthenic Acids and Other Organic Compounds in Oil Sands Process-Affected WatersDownload
The Alberta oil sands contain one of the world’s largest reserves of oil - over 169 billion barrels of bitumen are economically recoverable with current extraction technologies. Surface mining, whereby the ore is extricated from the earth and bitumen is obtained via a hot water extraction...
Effectiveness of ozonation treatment in eliminating toxicity of oil sands process-affected water to chironomus dilutus
Metagenomics of hydrocarbon resource environments indicates aerobic taxa and genes to be unexpectedly common

This thesis focuses on formulating and analyzing non linear models for microbial dynamics vis-a-vis human and environmental health. Firstly, we develop and investigate a stoichiometric organic matter decomposition model in a chemostat culture that incorporates the dynamics of grazers. This...
Carbon isotope analyses of gases extracted from drilling muds while drilling in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) can be used to create carbon isotopic depth profiles. These profiles provide essentially continuous data through the stratigraphic section, offering a unique opportunity to...
To ensure oil sands process water (OSPW) is suitable for discharge into the environment, advanced water treatment technologies are required. In this study, integrated ozonation-biodegradation was investigated as a potential treatment option for OSPW. The treatment efficiency was evaluated in...
The Upper Devonian Grosmont reservoir in Alberta, Canada, is the single largest carbonate bitumen reservoir in the world, with an estimated 400 billion barrels of bitumen in place. The Grosmont bitumen formed from light crude oil via extensive biodegradation, which produced extremely high in-situ...
