Enhanced phytoremediation of oil sands tailings
Leader, Victoria Collins
We work closely with oil sands operators to develop and optimize cost effective, plant-mediated tailings dewatering technology. In this project portfolio, we enrich microorganisms and design organic amendments to enhance plant growth on oil sands tailings with the objective of increasing the speed of reclamation in northern Alberta. Our team includes expertise in the fields of microbiology, chemistry, soil chemistry, plant sciences, and remediation, and includes collaborators from across Canada.
