Pollutants to Products Projects
GPRC researcher and inventor Dr. Weixing Tan and his team have spent over a decade researching the most efficient way to mass-produce microalgae. Their research led them to build what is currently the world’s most efficient photobioreactor (PBR), a microalgae mass cultivation device.
Effluent and Bio-solids Conversion into Wood Fibre (2009-2019)
GPRC researchers are currently investigating options for innovative, low-cost and environmentally friendly alternatives for waste treatment.
Reclamation of Oilsands Wetlands by Winter Planting (2011-2015)
GPRC researchers have determined that planting trees in the winter when the wetland sites are accessible may be the best option to reclaim boreal wetlands disturbed by oil sands operation in Alberta.
Pathway to Carbon Neutral
Optimization of energy generation from renewable sources is essential to reducing the use of fossil energy and thus effect of greenhouse gases on the climate.
Separation of Suspended Particles
P2P researchers are developing low-cost technology to remove suspended particles and pollutants from water. This will allow water recycling and reduce the impact of resource mining on the environment.
