Webinar Description: As the Marcellus and Utica Shale gas production industry have rapidly grown in the U.S. over the past couple years, there is a recognized need to preserve landfill space and protect our environment. 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? 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.
