Development of Integrated Model for Assessment of Water and GHG Footprints for Power Generation SectorDownload
Freshwater is a critical natural resource and is used in energy production, conversion and utilization. To ensure that the use of water today does not adversely affect the prospects for its use by future generations, there is a need to understand long term water demand and supply through energy...
Techno-economic and Life Cycle Assessments of Oil Sands Products and Liquefied Natural Gas Supply Chains from Canada to Asia-Pacific and EuropeDownload
The diversification of Canadian oil sands and natural gas markets is imperative for their long-term economic growth. In order to ensure a competitive spot in the natural gas and oil global market, it is considerably important for Canada to supply its natural gas and oil at a competitive price...
With the fluctuations in conventional crude oil production and uncertainty in its global price, alternative sources of liquid fuels from natural gas and coal are being considered. In addition, formulation of policies in several jurisdictions on phase-out of coal power plants due to climate change...
The Development of a Framework for Modelling Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Scenarios in the Electricity Generation SectorDownload
Low- or zero-emitting alternative sources of energy have become widely sought for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions globally. Specifically, in the electricity generation sector, governments, utilities, regulators, and institutions have announced and implemented integrated policy measures...
Utilization of renewable bioenergy is a sustainable approach to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, efficient use of this resource is hindered by the current knowledge-gaps concerning collecting and processing dispersed biomass from large areas. This study focuses on developing...
Utilization of raw ligno-cellulosic biomass for energy use is limited because of its low heating value and low yield per unit area of biomass. Pellets are densified and compressed form of biomass which has less moisture and higher energy density compared to raw biomass. Pellets are typically...
Techno-economic analysis of the production of pure CO2 from flue gases via the monoethanolamine and ammonia capture processesDownload
Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fuel combustion have contributed to the overall greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Carbon capture is a promising technique that could reduce the emission from power plants with the ever-increasing energy demand. Research into the utilization of CO2 from flue...
The Development of a Framework for the Assessment of Energy Demand-based Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Options for Alberta’s Agriculture SectorDownload
Due to rapid economic expansion, Alberta’s energy sector has witnessed an upsurge in energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The agriculture sector in Alberta ranks second among the Canadian provinces in terms of energy consumption in the agricultural sector nationally. The current...
Development of a Decision Making Framework for Solid Waste Management Using GIS-based Site Selection and an Economic ComparisonDownload
The management of municipal solid waste (MSW) is one of the major challenging issues for various global jurisdictions. MSW generation and disposal rates are increasing worldwide along with increased population and urbanization. Limited landfill capacity and long-term environmental issues...
The overall objective of this study is to develop techno-economic models for the assessment of power generation cost and optimum power plant size using forest residues as feedstock in Alberta. At the optimum size of the plant, the cost of generation of power is minimum. In this research two...
