Dr. Mian is the Director, Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) Center For Green Chemistry and Engineering (CGCE) and is the Ledcor Group Applied Research Chair in Oil Sands Environmental Sustainability at NAIT. As the lead for the NAIT Centre for Green Chemistry and Engineering (CGCE) he provides overall leadership and strategic direction to the Centre. Under his leadership the CGCE is working with a consortium of oil sands organizations on applied solution-driven research and technology development for the oil sands industry, especially tailings management and process affected water treatment and management. This work has involved screening, verification, validation, and further development of cost-effective technologies and solutions for the oil sands. His work has also involved engagement and inputs into oil sands policy and regulatory work, standards and methods development. Over his career, Dr. Mian has worked in a number of consulting and government settings. Prior to joining NAIT, Dr. Mian worked as a technical specialist for the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) of Alberta. He was part of the ERCB team that developed, and then implemented the ERCB tailings regulation (Directive 074). He was part of a number of public hearings in the oil sands industry, and provided technical advice and approvals to a number of applications during his time with the ERCB. Most recently (2010) he was part of the joint review panel that reviewed and provided approval to Total E&P Canada's Joslyn Mine oil sands application.
Dr. Mian holds a Ph.D. in geo-environmental engineering from the Geotechnical Research Centre at the University of Western Ontario and an Executive MBA from Alberta-Haskayne Schools of business leadership program. He has authored a number of technical publications on oil sands, metal mine tailings management and regulations, tailings water and chemistries, and is quoted frequently in the media. He represents NAIT on a number of committees and organizations including Oil Sands Research and Information Network, Canadian Oil Sands Network for Research and Development and Cumulative Environmental Management Association of Canada.
Seair Inc. (TSX.V:SDS) develops proprietary equipment that diffuses gases, such as oxygen, ozone and carbon dioxide, into liquids. Seair's patented technologies can produce micron size bubbles which are more efficient than other diffusion technologies. The result is a stable condition, where gases remain in solution for extended periods of time, leading to increased productivity and lower operating costs. This, in turn, facilitates gas-based treatment of complex and challenging wastewater and allows Seair to provide full water reuse and closed loop systems.
Seair applications include frac and produced water treatment, efficient treatment of industrial ponds, mine dewatering, end-to-end sewage treatment for permanent residential communities and remote work camps, golf course irrigation and pond treatment, and oil sands/SAGD water solutions.

Seair is proud to be recognized as one of the Top 5 Cleantech companies in the TMX 2012 Venture 50.
