|FracPure™ solves the environmental problem of hydraulic fracturing with complete frac water remediation. Natural gas companies can eliminate CERCLA and Superfund liabilities by using the world’s only 100% frac water remediation, which was proven in the demonstration to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
FracPure™ Demonstration for the Pennsylvania Department of
Integrated Water Technologies successfully completed a demonstration of
FracPure™ Produced Water Remediation for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection in Southwest, Pennsylvania. The project was conducted under Industrial Waste Demonstration Project Permit No. 2610201.
The demonstration proved the effectiveness of FracPure™ in removing heavy metals, total dissolved solids and suspend solids from hydraulic fracturing produced water, exceeding the EPA and all state regulatory agency recognized drinking water standards of 500 PPM .
Problem: Hydraulic fracturing produces millions of gallons
of contaminated water at each well. Contaminants
included heavy metals, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS),
organics and Total Suspended Solids (TSS). Disposal has
consisted of dilution and deep well injection. Neither
method removed contaminants prior to release into the
environment or met EPA Drinking Water Standards.
Solution: FracPure™ water treatment units used chemical
precipitation, filtration, evaporation and crystallization to
remove all contaminants and create water safe for return
to the environment.
Result: Frac and produced waters were turned into 99.7% dry and liquid salt products and distilled
water exceeding EPA and all state regulatory agency drinking water standards. The FracPure™
Process averaged significantly less than 100 parts per million of total dissolved solids, which was
safely returned to the water table and into rivers and streams.
