I have a strong interest in sciences, particularly in engineering and earth sciences. I am really excited about participating in the 2007 Canada-wide science fair. I have participated in the Regional Science Fair (Victoria) for several years. This has been very beneficial to me because I learned a lot about many scientific disciplines through my own experiments and exposures to other projects. I am an outgoing person with a positive attitude, and I like challenges. Outdoors activities and sport teams, such as camping, hiking, soccer and field hockey are a huge part of my life. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and drawing wild life.

Contribution to Sustainability in Cement and Coal Production
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / None
Region:Vancouver Island
City:Victoria, BC
School:St Margaret's
Abstract:The Quinsam Coal Mine rejects are a valuable resource. They have ideal proportions of major oxides for high-quality cement production and contain between 6MJ and 12.5MJ of energy per kilogram of rejects. Their use would extend the life of the mine, reduce waste piles, and provide a reliable source of raw materials and energy savings for cement producers. The industry, society and environment would benefit.
