Fracking Flowback Water Paper Accepted to ES&T

Friday, July 15, 2016

The Plata lab is excited to announce a newly accepted paper to Environmental Science & Technology: “Indications of Transformation Products from Hydraulic Fracturing Additives in Shale-Gas Wastewater”. This study analyzed a set of flowback water samples from a hydraulically-fractured natural gas well via GCxGC TOF-MS. The results describe the detections of anthropogenic petroleum additives, disclosed industrial additives, as well as suspected additives and transformation products. Congrats to Andrew and everyone who worked on this project!
