dc.description.abstractAlberta’s economy is heavily dependent on the oil & gas sector, and with increasing concern over climate change and global warming from anthropogenic CO2 in the atmosphere, there is an urgent need for decarbonizing the economy. Progress toward decarbonization has been made with the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line facilitating carbon capture, utilization and storage; however, additional clean-technology for carbon utilization is required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while allowing continued oil production to meet the growing energy needs of the world. This study analyzes three models assessing Reversible Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (RSOFCs) in Alberta as a carbon utilization technology, with the ability to use waste CO2 while producing fuels, and chemicals; or as means to generate clean electricity. This study seeks to ascertain the environmental, economic, and energy, implications of this technology. The findings indicate that the technology is economically valuable, while providing environmental benefits and substantial energy applications.
