There can be a prevailing thought that nobody is working on oil sands development challenges. And my response is that nothing could be further from the truth.

People are quite energized when I describe what’s happening at the University of Alberta. Over a thousand researchers collaborate here on this one major topic: the responsible development of our oil sands.
We do two types of research. One would be improving existing processes. The other type would be looking for breakthroughs. How do we make it better? Less impact on the air. Less impact on the water. Less impact on the land.
There can be a prevailing thought that nobody is working on these challenges. And my response is that nothing could be further from the truth.
Along with improved efficiencies in production, we are using innovationslike Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) to help reduce our industry’s GHG emissions.
The University of Alberta makes new discoveries and advances new technologies to meet the challenges of balancing increasing world energy demands and environmental stewardship.
