Carbohydrate-Modified Microgels as a System for Extracting Naphthenic Acids from Tailings Pond WaterDownload
Northern Alberta houses massive tailings ponds, that store aqueous waste as a result of the processes employed to recover bitumen from the oil sand deposits. The aqueous waste, or tailings pond water (TPW), houses numerous toxic chemicals including naphthenic acids (NAs) - a complex group of...
Development of a Novel Engineered Bioprocess for Oil Sands Process-Affected Water and Tailings Fines/Bitumen/Water SeparationDownload
The oil sands bitumen extraction process results in the creation of waste products including oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) and mature fine tailings (MFT). Many technologies are currently under investigation to treat these waste products that are currently contained in vast storage...
