Event description


Series Background: This 4-part webinar series is designed to provide an overview of the recent BBC study, Bitumen Beyond Combustion - Phase 2 Report, conducted by Stantec Consulting for Alberta Innovates which addresses the potential for using bitumen as inputs to non-combustion products. View the Report. Alberta Innovates is leading this new initiative called Bitumen Beyond Combustion (BBC) that is advancing the development of non-combustion products (carbon fibres, asphalts, polymers, etc.) from Alberta bitumen.

Building on the Introduction to Bitumen Beyond Combustion webinar COSIA hosted in partnership with Alberta Innovates and Stantec Consulting, this follow-up webinar (and the fourth and final webinar in the series) will address Polymers.

Bitumen Beyond Combustion (Part 4) – Polymers

This webinar will close the Bitumen Beyond Combustion series with a presentation on polymers. You’ll hear the story of polymers, their various types, and how the industry landscape has changed and evolved around them. The presentation will investigate new market trends, polymer production process and manufacturing locations at a national and global level. It will also highlight a business case hoping to advance the understanding of numbers, and discuss technology readiness levels, social and environmental aspects, and intellectual property considerations.
