As domestic natural gas production continues to grow, the industry faces unique air pollution control challenges that require custom-designed solutions. This White Paper examines two aspects of the natural gas exploration and production industry: Production of “frac sand” used in hydraulic fracturing and operation of dehydration units.

America‟s natural gas industry continues to thrive, providing a bright spot for the nation‟s economy. Innovations in drilling and extraction methods has drastically improved the efficiency of gas wells. Our ability to tap into the vast reserves of natural gas contained in shale formations is fueling the boom and it‟s clear that shale gas production will continue to grow. As domestic natural gas production continues to ramp up, the industry faces unique air pollution control challenges that require customdesigned solutions.

In this White Paper, we‟ll examine two aspects of the natural gas exploration and production industry: production of “frac sand” used in hydraulic fracturing and operation of dehydration units. Both processes typically require the use of control devices in order to reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and other air pollutants. Each emission stream presents challenges that must be planned for if the control device is going to operate effectively over the long term.
