At Shale Insight 2015, the Ben Franklin Shale Gas Innovation & Commercialization Center (SGICC) presented their 3rd Annual Shale Gas Environmental, Health, & Safety (EH&S) Award. Each year SGICC conducts a survey of proposed or commercially available new technology advancements (cool things) in the EH&S area for the shale gas industry that are being developed by Pennsylvania-based entities. They choose one winner to highlight. The objective of the award is to place a spotlight on the importance of EH&S to the shale gas industry, by highlighting the new technologies that are being developed every year to promote continuous improvement in the EH&S area. The first year the award was given to MDN’s good industry friend Donny Beaver for one of his ingenious inventions, a shower to suck silica (sand) off workers’ clothes safely (see HalenHardy Wins Ben Franklin EHS Award for Silica Air Shower). Last year the award went to TekSolv for their development of a gas detection sensor system that identifies explosive buildup of dangerous gases during the drilling and fracking process (see Winner of Environmental Health & Safety Award Announced At Shale Insight 2014). This year’s winner was FyreRok Biofluids for innovating a way to produce hypochlorus acid at well pad sites, a non-toxic biocide used to treat water (kill bacteria) in water used for fracking…
