Two students working on CMC research projects have been selected to sit on the Highly Qualified Personnel Development Committee (HQPDC). Farid Ahmed, University of Victoria, and Maria Zarzalejo, University of Toronto, were successful applicants selected from a slate of well-qualified
On October 3, Roger Mah attended the Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada conference – Managing CO2 for Enhanced Oil Recovery and Carbon Capture and Storage. In January 2012, Roger Mah will be a PhD student in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Calgary.This is his blog about the
Carbon Capture and Storage is a technology that promises to solve our greenhouse gas problems by burying carbon dioxide underground. The CO2 then will be sequestered away from the atmosphere for geological time, much like the oil and gas that it came from. However, among the issues
In a lab-to-field collaboration headed by the University of Victoria’s Peter Wild, researchers are pioneering the first fibre-optic system designed to monitor carbon dioxide at underground storage sites. Monitoring, measuring and verifying what becomes of injected CO2 over the long te
University of Saskatchewan geological engineering researcher Chris Hawkes is putting the squeeze on rocks in a project that will involve laboratory testing and the development of new, powerful computer simulations to find out how to inject carbon dioxide (CO2) deep underground and mak
University of Ottawa (uOttawa) researchers are leading two major, multi-institutional projects funded by Carbon Management Canada (CMC), a Network of Centres of Excellence that supports game-changing research to eliminate carbon emissions from the fossil energy industry.
Microbes that convert coal into natural gas, and filters to trap carbon dioxide from power plants are two technologies that teams led by University of Alberta (U of A) researchers are pursuing to address the issue of upstream greenhouse gas emissions.
Microbes that convert coal into natural gas; the formation of icy carbon dioxide-hydrates; and public perceptions of carbon capture and storage are three areas of investigation that University of Calgary researchers are pursuing to address the problem of upstream greenhouse gas emissi
