Oil sands tailings consortium

The Oil Sands Tailings Consortium (OSTC) was founded in December 2010 when seven of Canada’s oil sands companies (Suncor Energy, Syncrude Canada Ltd., Shell Canada, Canadian Natural Resources Limited, Imperial Oil, Total E&P Canada and Teck Resources) came together to share tailings research and technology in a unified effort to rapidly Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and naphthenic acids (NAs) are toxic contaminants of environmental concern found in process water and mature fine tailings, or tailings, from the oil sands industry. BioTiger™, a patented microbial consortium of twelve natural environmental isolates, was found to cometabolically biodegrade the NA hexanoic acid and the PAH phenanthrene in the presence

The OSTC was recently integrated into Canada's Oil Sands Innovation Alliance  29 Aug 2012 A collaboration of Alberta Innovates – Energy and Environment Solutions (AI- EES) and the Oil Sands Tailing Consortium (OSTC),  Suncor has shared its innovative process with other industry partners through the Oil Sands Tailings Consortium (OSTC) founded in 2010. The consortium has since transitioned into COSIA’s Tailings EPA. Shell Canada has pursued a very similar technique, called Atmospheric Fines Drying (AFD).

Tailings ponds are massive earth structures used to store coarse and fine solids contained in the oil sands deposit and recover water back to the main processing plant. These ponds are temporary storage facilities and need to be reclaimed when no longer in use.Fine solids from tailings streams tend to trap large volumes of water, making pond reclamation challenging at best.

Oil sands industry’s co-operative spirit helps polish public image (OSLI), comprised of six of those same companies, and the Oil Sands Tailings Consortium, both founded in 2010. COSIA’s Tailings Environmental Priority Area (EPA) is focused on improving the management of oil sands tailings. Tailings are the sand, silt, clay and water found naturally in oil sands that remain following the mining and bitumen extraction process. Tailings ponds are massive earth structures used to store coarse and fine solids contained in the oil sands deposit and recover water back to the main processing plant. These ponds are temporary storage facilities and need to be reclaimed when no longer in use.Fine solids from tailings streams tend to trap large volumes of water, making pond reclamation challenging at best.
