Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta May 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-11 chemist demonstrated technique New oil sands process developed NEW YORK An American research chemist demonstrated Wednesday a new chemical process which he claimed would extract petroleum from Canada's vast Athabasca oil sands with greater efficiency arid less cost than existing methods. The demonstration was staged before a group of oil company including several from Western by Dr. Alfred R. president of Guardian Chemical who claimed the process would extract 95 per cent of bitumen from high-grade oil compared with 85 to 88 per cent by methods using hot water and steam. He estimated a full-scale fa- cility using his process could produce barrels of oil a day at a cost of between and a excluding gov- ernment royalties. Oil company executives said this compared with approximately 96 a barrel for existing methods of treating oil sands and about a barrel for oil from conventional wells. The key component in the process is a chemical Guardian originally developed for dispersing oil spills along coastlines and which was used to clean up a major spill off Santa Calif. In Wednesday's demonstra- Dr. who holds 40 patents in medicine and dumped a handful of oil sand from the Alberta fields into a gallon poured in a beaker of water and added some Polycomplex. The jar was agitated by machine for five minutes and the solution then quickly separated into three on solution in between and sand at the bot- tom. Only a dilute solution of Polycomplex in water is needed to extract oil from said Dr. and the solution can be used repeatedly through recycling. this process eliminates the large volume of waste water which has become a serious problem for the Canadian he said. water from present techniques must be stored in man-made reservoirs because it retains clay in colloidal suspension that created a pollution hazard. It cannot be discharged in this condition since the clay does not tend to the accumulation of process water is becoming too great to Dr. Globus said he has dis- cussed the process with Alberta government officials but was unable to indicate their reaction. In actual oil sands would'be agitated with the water and chemical bolution at about 115 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit in a series of large rotary units. When agitation was the top layer would be pumped to settling tanks and the oil drawn off as it rose to the surface. The rotary units would be automatically re- loaded with oil-laden sand to repeat the sequence after clean sand was dumped.

PER BAQ 6 .97 and the U.S. can help solve housing shortages in developing nations. He proposed shipping building materials sufficient to build one million houses yearly to poorer countries in Africa and Asia. Mr. Chamecki said only 11 cities had more than one .mil- lion residents in 1920. But this will grow to more than 300 cities by the year 2000. About one-third of the world population is currently home- less or living in poor housing. The recent United Nations housing study found building techniques are not improving as rapidly as other he said. Building industries hardly exist in some countries and building materials are in short supply in most developing nations. Mr who said he was expressing a personal suggested in an interview later that people don't seem to realize the size of the housing problem. In order to deal with the people will have to give up something. He said he has designed a light frame house that could be assembled in four hours by two people Construction materials could be shipped cheaply to developing countries in containers. The project should be oper- ated by the government as costs would rise if handled by private he said Pri- vate companies are interested in profits and houses for developing countries had to be cheap. One delegate suggested a drawback in the plan is that developing countries have little money to spend on these materials. He said the wealthy countries should be prepared to accept raw materials from the poor nations in return for these goods.
