Management of bentgrass cultivars for improved resistance to Fusarium patch under climate change

2014/15-2016/17 • $204,788
Management of bentgrass cultivars for improved resistance to Fusarium patch under climate changeAtmospheric CO2 concentrations are expected to reach between 500 to1000 ppm by the end of the century and, as a consequence, Canada and other northern countries may experience a seasonal temperature...

Determination of plant interactions treated with porphyrins and various light wavelengths.

2015/16 • $25,000
Petro-Canada has developed a range of porphyrin and phthalocyanine-based compounds that in real-world tests have performed well in terms of promoting a plant's capacity to cope with both abiotic (i.e. drought and salt) and biotic (fungal pathogen) stresses. These positive effects are realized by...

Developing novel microparticle and nanoparticle-based controlled release formulations for agriculture

2015/16 • $25,000
Increasing the productivity of agricultural fields, particularly in the context of the shrinking availability of prime agricultural land and increasing weather stresses, is essential to both secure our existing food supplies as well as provide for the growing world population. In this context,...

Improving hydrocarbon classification analysis for lubricant base oils

2015/16 • $25,000
The analysis of crude oil and products derived therefrom via the refining process is and has always been of crucial importance in the petrochemical industry. In particular, mass spectrometry remains the prominent technique for the analysis of petrochemicals. Suncor's lubricants division...

Nano particle controlled release of plant systemic inducers

2015/16 • $25,000
Petro-Canada has been investing heavily in R&D activities in the area of agricultural and lawn care products over the last decade. The Petro-Canada group, led by Dr. Michael Fefer, has developed a range of porphyrin-based products that have performed well in preliminary tests in terms promoting...

Defense activators as an alternative to pesticides for controlling turfgrass diseases

2012/13-2014/15 • $195,000
Civitas is a mixture of food-grade isoparaffins that is used in combination with Harmonizer, which is a chelated metal compound, and this combination is referred to here at C+H. Both compounds control plant diseases by activating or enhancing disease resistance in plants, but gene expression...

Inducers of host resistance for control of vegetable diseases- phase two

2014/15 • $12,500
Petro-Canada has developed new, environmentally friendly, chemistry that provides control of plant diseases by inducing the natural resistance in host plants. These products were tested for the first time on onions and carrots in 2013. Some interesting results were obtained, especially on...

Improved seismic imaging for reservoir monitoring and sustainable energy development

2010/11-2013/14 • $2,278,000
We seek to advance the resolution and fidelity of the science of seismic imaging such that, with great precision,we may monitor fluids within hydrocarbon reservoirs and track injected gasses. With a focus on Canada'sresource and sequestration environments, we will optimize recovery of Canada's...

Inducers of host resistance for control of vegetable diseases, Stemphyllium of onion and leaf blights and Sclerotinia of carrot

2013/14 • $24,450
Petro-Canada has developed new, environmentally friendly, chemistry that controls plant diseases by inducing the natural resistance in host plants. These products have never been tested on onions or carrots. This project will evaluate these products, alone and in combination, for the control...

NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Pipeline Transport Processes

2010/11-2012/13 • $480,130
Pipelines have been used as material handling devices for more than a century because this mode of transport represents an energy-efficient way of moving material from a source to a destination. In many industrial applications, however, a pipeline should also be considered to be a "reactor"...
