Athabasca Bitumen Upgrading with Hydrodynamic Cavitation

Vancouver 2014
We present the results of Athabasca bitumen upgrading using our hydrodynamic cavitation technology. Typical results involve 40-70% viscosity reduction and 1-2 degree API increase. We further present a pilot plant diagram and outline the necessary conditions for economic viability of the process including capital and energy costs.
