August 25, 2014

AECOM announced today its involvement in three research projects created by Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA), which will help advance the environmental performance of oil sand producers in Alberta, Canada.


The three separate research projects sit within COSIA’s Water Environment Priority Area, one of four focus areas for COSIA and will contribute to reducing water use and increasing water-recycling rates at oil sands mining and in-situ operations.

“We are honored to play a role in helping develop new water-management solutions for Canada’s oil sands operations,” said Matthew Sutton, AECOM’s chief executive, environment. “COSIA’s work in driving innovation represents an important exchange between the industry’s commitment to technical leadership and corporate responsibility.”

COSIA is an alliance of oil sands producers focused on accelerating the pace of improvement in environmental performance for Canada’s oil sands through collaborative action and innovation. To date, COSIA member companies have shared 560 distinct technologies and innovations that cost over C$900 million to develop.
