Bitumen Recovery from Athabasca Oil Sands

We have just received a copy of Volume 1 (Theoretical Basis) of the Handbook on Theory and Practice of Bitumen Recovery from Athabasca Oil Sands by J.H. Masliyah, J. Czarnecki and Z. Xu. Synthetic crude oil derived from oil sand deposits is of major importance for energy supply in North America for the next century, so bitumen extraction fundamentals has become quite relevant.

Volume 1 deals with physical and chemical properties of oil sands, application of surface and colloid science to bitumen recovery and tailings management, emulsions and fluid-particle dynamics. The authors expect to have Volume II, dealing with commercial operations, ready by next year.

Comments on the book are welcome. Click here for ordering information.
