Developing a new way to transport bitumen


CN has partnered with InnoTech Alberta to develop a new and innovative way to transport bitumen – the heavy crude produced from Alberta’s oil sands. CN has filed a patent application for CanaPux™️​, a process that turns bitumen into a semi-solid by mixing and coating it with polymer. The result is a small non-hazardous pellet that doesn’t explode, leak or sink. Although still in the early stages of development, CanaPux™️​ has the potential to unlock new offshore markets for Canadian producers. View website
