World-class lab at U of A to investigate unconventional hydrocarbons

This is an area of research where ppl probably don't have as much trouble getting funding, but still kudos - if we're going to do it, let's do it as effectively and efficiently as possible

Cutting-edge research into new ways of recovering bitumen, coal bed methane, shale gas and other unconventional hydrocarbons is the focus of a $15-million collaboration between the University of Alberta, government and industry.
