Titan was invited to attend the Imaginea Energy-Innotech Alberta annual field tour at Brooks Alberta. 

The field tour highlighted research being conducted by InnoTech Alberta to investigate the use of low input and minimal management technologies, including plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) and enriched biochar to expedite and enhance reclamation and remediation within the Dry Mixed grass Natural Subregion. 


The event was attended by more than 20 individuals representing the oil and gas industry, restoration and reclamation, government regulators, policy, managers, and field personnel.  The tour comprised three site locations.  Each of the locations featured biocarbon (biochar) manufactured by Titan. 

Titan's president, Jamie Bakos, stated, “The research being conducted by InnoTech and Imaginea is very exciting.  Their research may lead to low cost natural remediation and reclamation processes that could have a very positive effect on the oil and gas industry by speeding the return of oil lease properties to the landholders.  We are very impressed by the industry leadership and the quality of the research and attention to detail by Imaginea and InnoTech”.
