Foam could offer greener option for petroleum drillers

Princeton University News

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, provides energy but also uses large amounts of fresh water while producing corresponding amounts of wastewater. Water-based foams, which use about 90 percent less water than fracking fluids, provide an alternative, and Princeton researchers are studying the mechanism for foam-driven fracture in such drilling.
