Golden, Colo. – August 18, 2015 – Colorado Cleantech Industries Association Announces 2015 Oil & Gas Cleantech Challenge Presenting Companies
A Product Innovation Showcase and its partners would like to see:
Innovative Products and Technologies, Post Prototype, Clean Technologies
Specific clean technology sectors include:
THE INTERNET OF THINGS/DIGITAL OILFIELD (including but not limited to): low cost sensors and actuators with data collection, networked for monitoring, optimization and decision making to improve environmental monitoring; low cost hardware for problem detection and spill prevention. [Need to see applications, not just suggestions.]
WATER (including but not limited to): real-time monitoring including efficient sampling, and analysis; beneficial re-use of produced water including recycling or conversion to solid salt suitable for winter road maintenance or dust control; recycling of flowback water (gel fracs); new disposal methods; minimization of water volumes; well bore integrity monitoring systems; alternative sourcing and processing to freshwater. Water-less fracking technologies (e.g. use of cold compressed natural gas or LNG in place of water).
