Application of Anoxic-Aerobic Membrane Bioreactors (MBRs) for Oil Sands Process-Affected Water (OSPW) TreatmentDownload
The enormous volumes of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) produced during oil sands bitumen extraction have been a public concern due to the toxicity and persistence of the organic contaminants contained in the water. Among all the contaminants in OSPW, naphthenic acids (NAs) are regarded...
Contribution of the Rumen Epithelial Transcriptome and Microbial Community to Variation in Beef Cattle Feed EfficiencyDownload
Feed efficient cattle consume less feed and produce less environmental waste than inefficient cattle. Many factors are known to contribute to differences in feed efficiency. However, it is unknown how the rumen epithelium and its associated microorganisms influence the feed efficiency of cattle....
Long Term Dynamics And Potential Remediation Of Fine Textured Soils And Ground Water Contaminated With Chlorinated Organic Compounds And SaltsDownload
Contamination of land, water, and air is a widespread concern often associated with anthropogenic activities. Remediation of contaminated sites is necessary to minimize negative impacts on human health and the environment and allow for safe, productive use of land. Although contaminated sites...
Methanogenesis in oil sands tailings: an analysis of the microbial community involved and its effects on tailings densificationDownload
Densification of tailings slurries to mature fine tailings (MFT) is important in the oil sands industry for tailings inventory reduction, pore water recovery and tailings reclamation. The cause of methane release from the tailings pond of Shell Albian Sands (Albian) and the effects this process...
Assessment of microbial community development is required to determine the success of reclamation process on disturbed land after mining. Peat (PMM) or LFH mineral soil mix (LFH) is used as capping material in reclamation. Application of coarse woody debris (CWD) also facilitates reclamation by...
Treatment of Oil Sands Process-affected Water (OSPW) Using Integrated Fixed-film Activated Sludge (IFAS) ReactorsDownload
The oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) generated from bitumen extraction of oil sands, is currently stored in tailings ponds due to its toxicity to the aquatic organisms. The primary toxic constituents of OSPW are a complex mixture of alicyclic and aliphatic compounds containing carboxyl...
