Syncrude Collaboration Improves Technology InnovationIn recent years, Collaboration has become an important aspect of research and development among oil sands companies.
Mal Carroll is the new General Manager of Research and Development for Syncrude.
As he explains, this collaboration has been formalized a consortium called COSIA, the Canadian Oil Sands Innovation Alliance.
MAL CARROLL: Actually sharing and leveraging is a key component to how we do work here at Research. And COSIA is an organization that is really focused on developing environmental technologies. And what it does is it provides an opportunity for like-minded individuals and scientists to share ideas and provides a framework to collaborate. And the result is we're able to accelerate the pace of the innovation. And all of our core environmental technologies within reclamation and closure, water, tailings are shared amongst all the other oil sands companies in Alberta.
According to Mal Carroll, Syncrude also collaborates with academics across Canada and around the world, as well as with other industries
