The Institute for Breakthrough Energy Technologies (IBET) is a community contribution corporation dedicated to efficiently sourcing and accelerating the commercialization of breakthrough energy technologies. IBET received a grant from Evok Innovations to evaluate alternative methods of hydrogen production that can reduce costs and greenhouse gas emissions of oil sands operations.  Hydrogen is an important feedstock for bitumen processing and the current method of steam methane reforming is carbon intensive.  This project seeks to identify new hydrogen supply options that can utilize the existing bitumen resources, reduce supply costs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
