The Bitumen Beyond Combustion (BBC) concept, pioneered by Alberta Innovates over the past four years, aims at a fundamental diversification of the oil sands industry by developing non-combustion products from bitumen, their production technologies and uses. These products would complement traditional energy products, such as gasoline, diesel, and other fuels. To date, four major BBC product categories have been identified: carbon fibres and combination products; asphalt binders; vanadium for large-scale storage of electricity in flow cells; novel polymers. This presentation will share the BBC concept and explore the technical and business cases for the four major BBC product categories.
