2017 EPC Nominee: Nabaa Alam

Nabaa EPC


Nabaa Alam of Calgary, AB, was nominated by Braeden Ostepchuk

Nabaa deserves to be an EPCitizen for his contributions in the Energy Industry. Currently, as an engineer with Imperial Oil, Nabaa helps plants and oil refineries improve energy usage efficiency. However, when Nabaa was a student in his last year at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, his process design team of students worked on a project sponsored by SBI BioEnergy that fractionated conversion materials into renewable gasoline, diesel and bio-jet fuel. The inventor and innovator of the conversion process was SBI BioEnergy CEO Inder Pal Singh. This project in March 2016, ended up receiving $10 million from the provincial carbon levy. At the time, the government estimated that the investment will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by a staggering 112,000 tonnes by 2020 - equivalent to removing 23,000 cars off the road for one year. Shell has recently purchased the technology licensing rights in June 2017. 

He has received the following honours: Starfish Canada’s Top 25 Under 25 Environmentalists, Corporate Knights Top 30 Under 30 Sustainability Leaders, Plant Engineering’s Engineering Leaders Under 40 and Avenue Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 in Edmonton. In Nabaa’s free time, he has co-founded a not-for-profit organization and is a part of the World Economic Forum as a Global Shaper. He has been recognized as a Future Global Leader as he was awarded the opportunity to be CEO of ATB Financial for a day, and was mentored by Canada’s highest rated CEO, Dave Mowat. Finally, he has completed an Executive Leadership Program at Cornell University and hopes to one day be a leader in the energy industry shaping a more sustainable future for all Canadians.
