Canadian Writers, McClelland & Stewart, and the Paperback Book: Remediation, Publishing, and Cultural ContextDownload
This dissertation analyzes the relationship between literature and new media through an investigation of the book in a Canadian context and draws on book history and new media studies. To better understand the relationship between print and digital forms of publishing, I look backwards to a...
Designer Biochar-Coke Mixtures to Remove Naphthenic Acids from Oil Sands Process-Affected Water (OSPW)Download
The objective of this 6-month pilot experimental study was to test the ability of biochars derived from Alberta biomass and an oil sands petroleum coke to remove selected organic acids from water. To this end, we selected one biochar produced from wheat straw and made by the Alberta Biochar...
This report provides a number of cost estimating factors, common terminology and common practices derived from industrial decommissioning projects, international cost estimating practices and the outcome of a joint university, industry and regulator workshop. The cost estimation factors...
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...
Surface mining for bitumen extraction results in production of tailings that are deposited into large ponds. Tailings in the ponds support diverse microbial communities capable of metabolizing organic compounds and producing biogenic gases (methane, CH4 and carbon dioxide, CO2). Because of low...
Remediation of bitumen-contaminated sand grains: development of a protocol for washing performance evaluationDownload
In the development of a non-aqueous bitumen extraction process, a major obstacle is solvent loss due to hydrocarbon attachment to the reject sand grains. A proposed solution to this problem is to wash (i.e. remediate) the oil-contaminated sand grains with water and surfactants. This research is...
An agricultural land was adversely affected by salt released by the oil and gas industry. Remediation was needed to recover the land to agricultural productivity. Field-scale and laboratory-scale experiments were conducted to identify a practical and reliable remediation technique that could be...
The "mulata affect" may be understood as the repetitive process and movement of power and affect qualified in the mulata image over time. Through a lens of affect theory this study seeks to analyse how the mulata image in Cuba has historically been affected by, and likewise affected, cultural...
This study examines the effects of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PAO1) biofilm, with a concentration of cells similar to that reported for saturated aquifers, on the transport of poly(acrylic acid) stabilized nanoscale zero valent iron (pnZVI) in 14 cm long, saturated, laboratory packed columns, with...
