Our Innovative Hydrocarbon Products Program supports projects that will contribute to Alberta’s hydrocarbon resource value while securing long-term future for Alberta’s oil sand resources in a new economy. The three sub-programs support projects that can improve hydrocarbon products’ quality and value.
1. Bitumen Partial Upgrading: supports projects that add value to Alberta’s bitumen while increasing pipeline capacity and reducing industry operating costs and lifecycle greenhouse gases.
2. Natural Gas Value-Add: supports projects that convert natural gas into higher value products such as liquid fuels and hydrogen.
3. Bitumen Beyond Combustion: supports projects that converts bitumen into high-value non-fuel products for economic growth and diversification.See all programs of Alberta Innovates
