Permafrost Remediation Treatability System Development

2018/19 • $12,500
Permafrost soils pose unique problems for the remediation of hydrocarbons. Most soils contaminated in*Canada's North are excavated and remediated using landfarm approaches. However, in many northern*communities, the hydrocarbon impacts are located beside, or underneath structures such as homes...

Innovative municipal wastewater treatment with resource recovery

2011/12-2014/15 • $581,032
For the past thirty years, researchers at UBC have been working to develop new technologies and strategies for wastewater treatment. This effort has resulted in several breakthroughs in such areas as phosphorus removal and recovery, membrane bioreactors and sludge conditioning. In the next phase...

Assessment of nZVI synthesis and mobility at a field trial

2011/12-2013/14 • $115,869
The use of nanoscale zero valent iron (nZVI) for remediation of contaminated sites has received significant attention in part due to the ability of nZVI to rapidly transform contaminants in controlled laboratory experiments. One problem that has hampered the widespread implementation of nZVI is...

Buildings 2.0: Social engagement in green buidlings

2012/13 • $24,500
The project will investigate means for integrating social web (Web 2.0) tools into building information modeling (BIM). BIM is a delivery process and set of tools that allow users to generate and manage building data during the project's life cycle. BIM allows users to model and manage not just...

Converting low value biomass into hydrogen

2010/11 • $156,900
The continued growth of the Canadian (and global) population seems to disproportionately increase the demands on the nation's natural resources and ultimately results in the development greater quantities of waste byproducts. The reuse of biomass to generate a renewable energy source is of...
