Fighting climate change with CO2 eating algae

Through our research, the CO2 collected from smokestacks and wastewater to feed algae helps fight against greenhouse gas emissions.

Our expert Jean-Claude Frigon explains the process on Les électrons libres TV show (in French only)

Blazing a new trail for the forestry industry

Research completed by the NRC in collaboration with Natural Resources Canada aims to unlock new potential from an age-old resource: trees. The research focuses on using techno-economic analysis (TEA) and life cycle analysis (LCA) tools to determine the feasibility of converting forest waste into value-added products and energy.

Hydrothermal liquefaction of wet bio-feedstocks and wastes

Bio-feedstocks with high water content are generally not an attractive option for traditional thermochemical technologies due to the added penalty for drying these feedstock.

Hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) of these bio-feedstocks offers an alternate pathway to produce bio-crude and liquid fuels from wet organic streams.
