Remediation Education Network (RENEW)

2014/15-2019/20 • $1,650,000 • PI,CO
The Remediation Education Network (RENEW) is a CREATE program that will train the next generation of engineers and scientists in the interdisciplinary professional and technical skills they need to work at cleaning up the most challenging contaminated sites in Canada. Contamination of soil and...

Minimization of GHG emissions in froth treatment tailing by manipulation of electron acceptors

2017/18-2019/20 • $274,320 • PI,CO
The main sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in tailings ponds are from the biodegradation of naphthenic and paraffinic solvents used in bitumen recovery, and to a lesser extent, of residual bitumen. Since CH4 has a global warming potential (GWP) of 28-36 times that of CO2, reducing or...

Remediation of soil and groundwater impacted by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances

2018/19-2019/20 • $142,666 • PI,CO
Perfluoralkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are emerging contaminants that have been found in Canadian lakes, wetlands, groundwater and soil. The development of treatment strategies and technologies for PFAS represents an urgent need throughout North America due to their toxicity,...
