Editor’s note: The energy exploration industry is the first to demand advanced water technology for economic reasons: water efficiency during hydraulic fracturing means cost savings. Advances in on-site water treatment for energy exploration will drive down costs for the technology to a point where it can be implemented in break-even or non-profitable situations, like personal housing […]
There’s an increasing concensus that natural gas will be America’s half-way house as we kick our fossil fuel habit. The difficulties lie in managing water use while extracting the transitional fuel. Because of the near surety of a long-term natural gas industry, technologies devoted to treating produced water form one of the few sectors where […]
Vikram Rao is Executive Director at Research Triangle Energy Consortium and a former CTO of Halliburton. He will present a keynote address at the BlueTech Innovation Forum on June 8th. I’m certainly not the first to raise the specter of an oil plateau. This is not the same as Peak Oil, although there are similarities. […]
The BlueTech Blog is an editorially independent, open forum for commentaries and news from the world of advanced water technology.
It's hosted by The Artemis Project, a San Francisco-based water-tech consultancy.
