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...
Fluorescence technology was examined as an analytical tool for identifying naphthenic acids in process-affected water. The fluorescence signal from process-affected water was narrowed down to the extractable organic acid fraction, known to contain naphthenic acids. A characteristic intensity...
