COSIA Water EPA Best Practices

Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA) is an alliance of oil sands producers focused on accelerating the pace of improvement in environmental performance in Canada’s oil sands through collaborative action and innovation.

Water is high-value commodity and COSIA’s Water Environment Priority Area (EPA) is looking for innovative and sustainable water solutions to reduce water use and increase water recycling rates at oil sands mining and in situ (in place) operations without environmental burden shifting (causing negative environmental impacts in other areas).

The Best Practices Project's goal is to bring together oil sands operators to share their practices and technologies and accelerate the dissemination of practices, knowledge and information. The resultant improvement in operations and reliability will enable improved environmental performance.
