Research Activities

The core research work is oriented towards increasing energy efficiency in industrial operations which assists our member companies in meeting their environmental objectives. Key initiatives at present include sulfur management issues (acid gas injection, SO2 injection and sulfur blocking), increasing sulfur recovery efficiency in Claus systems, utilizing sulfur in the petrochemical industries and handling sulfur in the transportation and export chain. We also continue to do work in the area of sour gas production, particularly with respect to sulfur deposition in well and surface facilities including methods for prevention of corrosion in pipelines.

ASRL has research staff that comprise of all levels of education, from doctoral to technical qualifications. The bridge between industry and academia is strengthened through the research and services that ASRL provides and the graduate students that conduct research within our facilities.

ASRL research is carried out in the modern research laboratories at the University Research Centre, University of Calgary.
