Green Fracking Fluids - Sustainable Plant Based Fracking Fluids

Green Fracking Fluids - Sustainable Plant Based Fracking Fluids

The fracking fluids are a combination of chemical products used in hydraulic fracturing to improve the quantity of oil and gas to be extracted from a well. The fluids are a combination of water, proppant -sand- and several chemical additives, most of them highly criticized because are harmful, hazardous and contaminant to human beings and the environment. 

The fracturing fluid contents have variations depending on the geography and geology. The participation of additives within the final formula in the fracturing fluid goes from 0.5% to 2%, plus the remaining, water and sand (or ceramic beads) as a propant.

There are many chemicals used in fracking, but most hydraulic fracturing jobs are done within a small amount of such chemicals. Much less is done with green and sustainable additives, as those offered by us. The environmentally friendly option is a very short list, which is smaller if we take into account fracking additives made from renewable resources, or biodegradable additives.   

But there is an alternative to do fracking in a sustainable way: The plant based fracking fluids. The green and sustainable fracking fluids.

At Aloetrade America LLC, we have researched and developed new green products for use in fracking fluids. Our products are totally sustainable and renewable. We offer environmentally friendly fracking fluids, all them made from natural polymers. Most of them are plant based solutions for the fracking industry.

Our plant based products replace some highly hazardous synthetic chemicals and generate the same results, with some savings in dosage and less risk to personnel handling them. But fundamentally, they are green fracking additives. Green fracking fluids.

Our products are 100% natural and come from renewable resources. Because they are plant based products, where aloe, nopal, yucca, moringa and chitosan are the main component. Now, through technological innovations from Aloetrade America LLC, we are proud to present our plant based products for use in the fracking industry.

GREEN PRODUCTS FOR FRACKING INDUSTRY

A review by each Fracking Fluid

Gelling agent

Gelling agents are usually a 0.5% of the fracking fluid composition. The gellant additive thickens water in a way to ensure the proppant may keep the fracture open. The sand also breaks down as a result of reaction with the crosslinker and breaker, thus ensuring an easier flow of fluid to the borehole.
