The Fracking Poll Results are In

Results from a recent survey conducted by Atlanta-based Ecologix Environmental Systems indicate that water treatment can play an important role in industry perceptions of hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”). “The introduction of new, more-advanced water treatment solutions opens the door to a more balanced discussion about fracking’s potential energy and economic benefits.” Ecologix, a leading manufacturer of…

The Mediator in the Fracking Conversation

The boom in hydraulic fracturing on shale lands has inflamed passions, but the debate doesn’t have to be a white-knuckle fight to the death. There are ways to tackle one of the most pressing issues related to fracking – water safety and supply – that many may have overlooked. The debate has clouded the issue…

Mobile Frac Water Treatment in Texas

The Ecologix team just finished another round of frac water treatment demonstrations for the Groundwater Management Area 7 officials in Colorado City, Texas. Our pilot system, the ITS-100 rolled up on-site right next to the flowback holding pond and began processing water within hours of arrival. The pilot Integrated Treatment System (ITS-100) is rated for treating 100…

Hydraulic Fracturing: Mobile Wastewater Treatment that Actually Makes Sense

At Ecologix, we’ve engineered and enhanced our mobile Integrated Treatment System (ITS) for treating the wastewater produced during hydraulic fracturing. We’ve designed what we call the Mobile Chemical Treatment (MCT) unit. The MCT-900 is a universal chemical management system for chemical mixing at rural drilling sites. Like the Mobile DAF system (the heart of the ITS),…
