The Issue and Challenge
Oil sands mining and extraction processes require commercial scale (1000 – 10,000m3/hr) hot water in the 20-90 °C range. Currently this hot water is produced indirectly through contact with steam produced in natural gas fired boilers, and cogeneration units and waste heat.
COSIA is seeking technologies that can replace or supplement conventional hot water production approaches in either new or existing mining operations without using existing (or new) steam resources for heat exchange purposes. Technologies will result in significant greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions over existing hot water production approaches.
