New Tech Uses “Microbe-Powered Battery” to Clean Frack Wastewater

It’s always fun and interesting to come across new technology in the oil and gas industry. It seems the industry is forever tinkering, testing, trying new things in an effort to lower costs and make it safer for the environment. Yes, oil and gas companies are concerned about the effects they have on the environment, contrary to what idiots like Mark Ruffalo say. The latest innovation comes from researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder where they have invented a simpler (yet very effective) process to simultaneously remove salts and organic contaminants from the wastewater AND produce additional energy at the same time. The new process uses a “microbe-powered battery” to do its magic. We have the low down, including a copy of the published research…
