Cypher Environmental was in attendance at the 2014 International Oil Sands Tailings Conference (IOSTC), which took place December 7th – 10th, 2014 in Lake Louise, Alberta. This highly anticipated event brings together industry stakeholders and experts to address tailings technology and management in Alberta’s Oil Sands Industry. Cypher environmental was pleased to present on the potential use of UltraZyme Hydrocarbon Powder, which is being considered for its potential to assist the remediation process of oil sands tailings.
This research effort supports Cypher’s mandate of promoting environmentally-friendly and highly-effective solutions to leading industries. This project is being completed in collaborations with Dr. Ania C. Ulrich PhD. Peng., Associate Professor at the University of Alberta, Civil and Environmental Engineering department.
