Tracers Developed for Tracking Frack Fluids

A team of US and French scientists have developed geochemical tracers that can identify hydraulic fracturing flowback fluids that have been spilled or released into the environment, giving oil and gas drillers a new tool for monitoring water quality near their operations. The tracers have been field-tested at a spill … Read more »

Acid Mine Drainage Can Clean Up Fracking Wastewater, Duke Study Says

Much of the naturally occurring radioactivity in fracking wastewater might be removed by blending it with another wastewater from acid mine drainage, according to a Duke University-led study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology. While fracking wastewater and acid mine drainage each pose environmental risks, blending them can … Read more »

Radioactive Contaminants Found at Fracking Wastewater Disposal Site

Elevated levels of radioactivity, salts and metals have been found in river water and sediments at a site where treated water from oil and gas operations is discharged into a western Pennsylvania creek, according to a Duke University study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology. The study examined … Read more »
