Revolutionizing the Oilsands Industry: NanosTech's Path to a Greener Future
January 8, 2024

We are excited to share the recent feature on NanosTech in the Calgary Herald, written by David Parker. Published on December 18, 2023, the article unveils NanosTech's pivotal role in transforming the Alberta oilsands industry.

NanosTech, a Calgary-based technology company, originated from the Alberta Ingenuity Centre for In Situ Energy at the University of Calgary. Committed to pioneering catalytic solutions for the energy industry's most pressing challenges, NanosTech is on a mission to lead the charge in the energy transition.

Founded by CTO Pedro Pereira-Almao and a team of seasoned scientists, NanosTech is uniquely positioned to tackle the challenges of climate change. Pereira-Almao, a distinguished scientist with over three decades of experience, has dedicated his career to upgrading technologies, from CO2 conversion to renewable fuels. His expertise extends to in situ upgrading, where he has played a pivotal role for the past 18 years.

NanosTech's roots in Venezuela, similar to Alberta's heavy oil landscape, led Pereira-Almao to Calgary in 2003. Since then, he has been at the forefront of nanotechnology innovation, envisioning Calgary as a hub for groundbreaking technology.

Recently securing substantial funding from the Alberta government, including $5 million from Emissions Reduction Alberta and $500,000 from Alberta Innovates, NanosTech is poised for a transformative journey.

The company's groundbreaking technology promises a reduction of up to 35% in emissions, coupled with economic performance enhancements ranging from $5 to $8 per barrel. NanosTech's innovations extend beyond environmental benefits to include improved oil recovery and reduced diluents, freeing up pipelines and reducing costs.

With a pilot demonstration in northern Alberta on the horizon, NanosTech is on track to revolutionize oil production. The expected operational date by the end of next year marks a significant step toward realizing the company's vision for a cleaner, more efficient energy future.

As we usher in this era of change, NanosTech stands as a beacon of transformation. Their catalyst and noncatalyst-based technologies are set to accelerate the evolution of energy, making it more sustainable and cleaner for our planet. Stay tuned for more updates on this groundbreaking journey!
