Colorado company completes testing on chemical-free fracking treatment

A Colorado company has completed testing of a chemical-free water treatment system for the hydraulic fracturing process used in natural gas and oil exploration and production.

Produced Water Solutions has developed a proprietary process called Ecofrac to treat the large volumes of water used in hydraulic fracturing.

The mobile, low-energy and chemical-free process treats water prior to injection, reducing the chemicals injected underground.

“We have been very pleased with the testing results of our Ecofrac system,” said George Kast, founder and chief executive officer of Produced Water Solutions. “We believe it has many advantages to our customers and is superior to other technologies recently developed for this application.”

Based in Westminster, Produced Water Solutions offers water recycling and treatment technologies and services to the natural gas and oil development markets. For more information, log on to www.produced-water.net.

    It still sounds like chemicals are used and then cleaned – if so still sounds like it could pollute the underground water – give us more information – if only it were true that we could get some cleaner energy out of our gas and oil – like I said we cannot drink oil and water once polluted is not water we can drink – no water, no life –
