NAIT: Centre for Oil Sands Sustainability

The Centre for Oil Sands Sustainability (COSS) is a state-of-the art research lab staffed by an expert team of applied scientists, engineers and technicians.

The centre was founded through a $1.5 million endowment from Ledcor Group and seed funding from NAIT, establishing the Ledcor Applied Research Chair in Oil Sands Environment Sustainability. With additional funding from key industry partners like Suncor, as well as federal and provincial funding, the centre carries out applied research, pilot testing and technology development designed to meet the needs of Alberta’s oil sands industry.

We bridge the gap between existing oil sands environmental research and relevant solutions, taking your innovative ideas from bench to scale-up. We work with your business and industry to develop technologies that improve the economic and environmental performance of the oil sands industry.
