An STW Water Reclamation Site
Well, they say if it sounds too good to be true, it's probably just what it seems, but this looks promising. GE Water & Process Technologies and STW Resources, Inc. have announced plans to reduce the amount of water that is wasted druing the fracking process. According to a GE press release,
The GE-STW collaborative will initially address the wastewater challenges of Barnett, Fayetteville and Appalachian Shale natural gas drilling plays - locations known for tough-to-treat wastewater. Utilizing GE patented Evaporator and Brine Concentrator technologies, the effort will help the regions reclaim approximately 70% of their hydraulic fracturing wastewater. The reclaimed water can be reused in the next well or safely returned back to the environment.
STW's webiste looks legit. They have a lot of pictures and some good info. I'm always skeptical, but being able to re-use 70% of frac water would greatly help the environment in gas-rich regions like ours.
