Hatboro, PA (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
Clean Earth, Inc. a leader in recycling contaminated soils, announced today Averil Rance, Vice President of Environmental, Health, & Safety, will present a webinar in collaboration with Soil Science Society of America to explore the recycling potential of drill cuttings derived from gas exploration and production activities.
As the Marcellus and Utica Shale gas production industries have rapidly grown in the U.S., there is a recognized need to preserve landfill space and protect our environment. Along with this rapid growth come several questions, including: What is the real potential of beneficially reusing drill cuttings rather than employing traditional landfill disposal practices? What recycling or beneficial reuse options are available now that are still cost effective and how can this help your operations?
In the webinar, Recycling and Reuse of Marcellus Shale Drill Cuttings, Clean Earth will elaborate on how Marcellus Shale Drill Cuttings, Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD) Cuttings and Drilling Sediments generated during the gas exploration and production activities could potentially address these concerns and how drill cuttings could play a key role in revitalizing PA brownfields and Act II Sites throughout the state.
Averil Rance, Vice President of EH&S at Clean Earth, Inc. states, "As we enter Phase II of our Research & Development permit we have made great progress in building data that supports the environmental benefits of this type of waste being recycled, to become not only a reusable product, but a reusable, sustainable product that benefits the environment."
The Webinar, Recycling and Reuse of Marcellus Shale Drill Cuttings, will be held on November 12, 2013, 12:00pm EST. To register for this webinar visit: https://www.soils.org/education/online-courses.
