Ecologix Launches Fracking Water Treatment System

Ecologix Environmental Systems, an Atlanta-based wastewater treatment company specializing in the oil and gas industry, has designed a mobile integrated treatment system for hydraulic fracturing that allows the re-use of water for future drilling.

Using dissolved air flotation technology, the system can treat up to 900 gallons per minute of frac flowback water. The sped up water treatment reduces the burden on equipment and logistics required when using traditional treatment methods, and could significantly reduce operational costs, Ecologix says.

The company has called efficient and affordable water treatment “one of the biggest operational challenges” facing the hydro-fracking industry.

In other oil and gas industry news, IBM researchers, developers and a team from IBM’s Centre of Excellence for Oil and Gas in Stavanger, Norway, are collaborating with experts from Statoil, Kongsberg Group and Det Norske Veritas on developing a system to enable real-time monitoring of environmental data, and early detection of – and response to – operational events surrounding offshore oil and gas installations.

The system is intended to be able to move beyond simply monitoring, to predicting and preventing issues before they occur, helping companies minimize the environmental risk associated with subsea oil and gas operations, IBM says.

  1. The solution for fraccing pollution is waterless fraccing; Gasfrac has done over a 1000 fracs with gelled propane; you don’t need any water; you don’t produce any waste fluids (no need for injection wells); no need to flare (no CO2 emissions); truck traffic is cut to a trickle from 900+ trips per well for water fraccing to 30 with propane fracs; and on top of that the process increases oil and gas production; it is a win for the industry, a win for the community and a win for the environment.

  2. I hear that there is a company in Louisiana that can bring fracking wastewater back to drinking water. It’s a new company that recently perfected the technology. I think they are called Clearwater Partners.

  3. Please send information Bringing fracking wastewater back to drinking water.Fracking is starting in my area,and I would like to present this proven perfected technolgy to the diferent fracking companys’ That will soon be drilling in my area. Thank you.

  4. As far as taking frack water back to the state of drinking water ,Yes it can be done . We have been doing water treatment plants all over the world, We have done over 5000 units in 42 different countries. Any thing is possible and with our 40 years of solving the different water problems all over the world we feel we can solve most problems that are brought to our attention. With some of the most up to date technology and R & D department we can sovle your needs.

  5. All these comments are consistent my work in cleaner production innovations. The barrier to improved environmental performance is rarely science or technology – it is the inability to temper the desire to make as much money as possible within the shortest time possible with a social conscience and the wisdom to protect the environment upon which we all ultimately depend .
