Editor's Choice

Treating produced water from hydraulic fracturing Produced water from unconventional gas and oil extraction may be hypersaline, with uncommon combinations of dissolved ions. This work aims to assist in the selection of produced water treatment technology, by identifying the temperature, pH, and recovery ratio under which mineral solid formation from these produced waters is likely to occur.
