Join us for a course over four virtual sessions hosted by Dr. Heather Kaminsky, NSERC Industrial Research Chair for Colleges in Oil Sands Tailings Management and Andrea Sedgwick, Ledcor Applied Research Chair at NAIT's Centre for Oil Sands Sustainability.
Oil sands tailings 101 will cover practical methods and technologies to treat fluid fine tailings, including chemical treatment applications.
In the first part of the course we will explore the current state of oil sands tailings management, the fundamentals of the processes in controlling the formation of fluid fine tailings and the basic technologies used.
In the second half of the course we will study the test methods used to evaluate new technologies and the importance of robustness.
