SteriFrac is the first eco-friendly biocide that will not harm ground water, area land or jeopardize the health of workers during the fracking process. Traditionally the fracking process pumps a mix of water, sand, and toxic chemicals (a biocide) into a well at high pressure in order to create fractures in the shale allowing the gas and oil to escape. There is a concern that the chemicals presently used in the fracking process may pollute the area ground water or soil where as SteriFrac as an effective non-toxic, non-combustible and non-corrosive biocide cannot harm the environment.

“SteriFrac is the finest biocide I’ve seen in the 32 years that I have worked in the oil field,” notes Max Duncan, President of Integrity Industries, a division of Weatherford International, NYSE-WFT. “Our customers have replaced their traditional biocides with SteriFrac due to its lasting impact, odor-killing capabilities and eco-friendly nature.”

The product is both EPA and FDA approved for use in fracking as well as for a drilling and completion fluid. SteriFrac is unique in that it is a pH neutral biocide (hypochlorous acid) that kills bacteria –quickly – without any toxic odors, fumes or fluids. Industry users can now optimize the gas and oil extraction process in U.S. wells without alarming landowners, area citizens, or community conscious environmentalists.

Rain Nation, LLC sells SteriFrac nationally for the exclusive distributor. For product information, call (407) 394-4996 or email
