The VPC High Shear Process will result in at least 99+% recovery of bitumen from the feedstock, making the process more productive than any known process.
Tremendous cost savings is the first benefit. Fewer compliance issues, stackable tailings, no environmental impact and the associated advantages are among the other benefits.
Without the use of diluents and the need to eliminate them at the upgrader, the yield rate at the upgrader is predictable and consistent. Compared to current conventional recovery processes, the VPC process will provide increased productivity rates, decreased energy consumption and the bitumen recovered will be of the highest quality.
