Global frac sand logistics market: Growing innovations in fracking operations
The increasing innovation in frac sand operations has been promoting the growth of the market. Hydraulic fracturing process causes air and water pollution because of silica dust. Thus, companies involved in frac sand operations have been innovating green fracking solutions to reduce the pollution.
“Green fracking solutions include waterless fracking, gas-based fracking, recycling of fracking water, and use of natural gas-powered trucks and mining equipment. A major vendor uses a vertical proppant storage system. It reduces the size of pad required for proppant storage, uses solar power, and improves inventory management,” says a senior market research analyst at Technavio.
