Technical and Environmental Evaluation of Current and Emerging Oil Sands Upgrading Technologies The overall objective of my research is to improve the characterization of the technical performance, energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with current and emerging oil sands upgrading technologies. To achieve this goal, a novel upgrading model will be developed that will quantify the energy use and GHG emissions associated with selected current and emerging oil sands upgrading technologies.
