Sustainable Fuels and Chemicals

2017/18-2019/20 • $99,000 • PI
Fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum are used as feedstocks for chemicals, transportation fuels, and energy. While economic growth is associated with energy consumption, the use of coal and petroleum leads to carbon dioxide release and climate change. One approach to curbing the effects of...

Production of clean and renewable energy and chemicals from biomass and oilsands bitumen

2012/13-2016/17 • $145,000 • PI
This proposal is focused on the development of renewable energy and chemicals from biomass and a greener process to upgrade the Canadian bitumen and heavy oil resources . Utilization of biomass resources for the production of energy and chemicals will reduce the emission of green house gases and...

Next generation runway deicer

2016/17 • $25,000 • PI
In Canada and other parts of the world with cold climate, airports have to apply deicers to runways during the winter so thataircrafts can land safely. Nachurs Alpine in New Hamburg, Ontario, is a major supplier of runway deicers. Their product is basedon potassium and sodium salts of acetates...

NSERC biomaterials and chemicals strategic research network

2012/13-2014/15 • $2,164,167 • PI,CO
The Forest Industry is one of Canada's largest industries and the economic mainstay of many communities across the country. It is facing great challenges due to competition from low cost sources of wood and declining demand for some of its products. The Industry is at a crossroads and must...

Innovations for green and renewable energy production

2010/11-2011/12 • $63,008 • PI
This research is focused on the development of novel catalysts and the application of reaction engineering such as catalytic distillation to produce green and renewable energy. A green process is defined as a process which is more energy efficient than an existing process and also reduces waste...

Surface area and pore size analyzer for nanoporous materials development in electrochemical energy research

2010/11 • $69,860 • PI,CO
Diminishing fossil fuel resources, simultaneously increasing energy demands, and the rising awareness of the negative environmental impact of the current energy use, create an escalating pressure to develop electrochemical energy conversion and storage system. Solar cells and fuel cells can meet...
