ACS GCI Hydraulic Fracturing Roundtable
In 2014, the ACS Green Chemistry Institute® and companies within the hydraulic fracturing industry developed a business plan for a new roundtable to integrate green chemistry and engineering into the chemical supply chain for hydraulic fracturing. The Roundtable provides member companies a collective scientific-focused organization better positioned to prioritize research needs and inform the research agenda, and to improve cost effectiveness of investment in the design and implementation of green chemistry and engineering tools specific to the industry.
To systematically integrate green chemistry and engineering principles into the chemical supply chain for hydraulic fracturing. This scientific collaboration will seek to enable informed decisions about those chemicals commonly employed in hydraulic fracturing and will work to promote the prioritized development of more sustainable chemical alternatives.
