Research team delivers clean water and valuable chemicals from waste carbon dioxide

A UBC research team has developed a technology that addresses the environmental challenges of excess carbon dioxide and wastewater in the oil and gas sector by converting them into valuable chemicals and desalinated water for reuse. The team led by Professor David Wilkinson in collaboration with SFU’s Professor Steven Holdcroft, received $500,000 in funding from the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation to further the new technology towards commercialization. The project was one of 20 finalists chosen from over 344 international submissions.  For more information, click here.
