Throughout these enormous and ongoing challenges, Canada’s oil sands continue, as ever, working together on environmental technologies and improving environmental performance.
From the time COSIA was formed, we looked for ways to quantify the value of the member-driven innovation that was passing through our doors.
The Oil Sands Monitoring (OSM) Program is North America’s largest environmental monitoring program. It uses data from 1,095 different sites.
In Alberta, the oil sands industry is becoming a global leader in managing tailings ponds efficiently and returning tailings ponds to a boreal forest ecosystem faster.
Here’s how we use the COSIA innovation model to create a common understanding on the pathway of accelerating technology development.
An outstanding example of industry collaboration, the $140 million WTDC is the first demonstration site of its kind in Canada for technologies to be tested on a commercial scale.
Cenovus led a novel COSIA project in 2015 – the first of its kind in the in-situ oil sands – to test the use of amphibious vehicles – machines that can drive on land and float on water.
