Plant and Seed Technologies for Boreal Reclamation and Reforestation

2017/18-2019/20 • $600,000
The NAIT Boreal Research Institute (BRI) project 'Plant and Seed Technologies for Boreal Reclamation andReforestation' introduces technologies and systems which, when tested and deployed, will accelerate theestablishment of young forests on industrial sites. Working with 10 industry and...

IRCC in Boreal reclamation and reforestation

2014/15-2018/19 • $1,000,000
Founded in 1995, NAIT Boreal Research Institute (NBRI) is a premiere research institute dedicated to the interests and stakeholders of Canada's boreal forest. The NBRI team is led by a Director and three PhD researchers. NBRI is housed in a new research complex in the town of Peace River, 500 km...

Adaptive forest management through EMEND (Ecosystem Management Emulating Natural Disturbance)

2012/13-2017/18 • $848,713
EMEND (Ecosystem-based Management Emulating Natural Disturbance) is a large-scale and long-term experiment about boreal forest dynamics located in NW Alberta. The project has imposed four innovative harvest treatments, standard Canadian clear-cuts and two prescribed fire treatments on...

NSERC industrial research chair for colleges in peatland restoration

2012/13-2016/17 • $1,000,000
The environmental impact on sensitive peatlands is growing as a consequence of the rapid pace of oilsands industrial development. 'In situ' production is the extraction method used in the Peace River oilsands of Alberta to drill for bitumen which is too deep to be mined at surface level. As the...

Field Technologies for Boreal Reclamation

2010/11-2015/16 • $2,300,000
NAIT has been in the business of providing highly trained forestry, petroleum engineering and other high demand trainees to industry for over 30 years. novaNAIT Boreal Research Institute is a satellite campus of NAIT located 500 km northwest of Edmonton. Our program called Field Technologies for...

Fundamental studies of drying, combustion and ash properties of biomass and impacts of pulp and paper mill operations

2012/13-2015/16 • $1,876,000
Pulp and paper mills in Canada require large amounts of high pressure steam and electric power to operate. About two-thirds of the energy required is supplied by burning the concentrated black liquor (spent pulping liquor) in recovery boilers. The remaining is from biomass boilers, known...

Tools for managing forest productivity and biodiversity in relation to ecosystem function in boreal mixedwood forests

2013/14-2015/16 • $764,300
Despite considerable progress over the past two decades towards a more holistic approach to sustainable forest management (SFM) Canadian land managers require better tools to effectively manage boreal landscapes for a range of values - from timber productivity, to ecosystem function and...
