Live EPA update today on Fracturing and Produced Water Panel; Energy Water Solutions' Dr. Stewart on EPA frac flowback and produced water panel

WASHINGTON, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- David R. Stewart, PhD PE and Chief Science Officer of Energy Water Solutions in Houston Texas was invited to give feedback as an expert member on the Environmental Protection Agency's Frac Flowback and Produced Water Technical Roundtable.  The EPA hosts an online update via live webinar on these issues today.  Dr. Stewart was invited to Washington DC with other industry experts to meetings on September 15, 2012 of the Hydraulic Fracturing panel which was held at EPA Headquarters.  This committee was formed at the request of Congress, and this morning there will be a live online update to "EPA's study of the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing on Drinking Water Resources:  Flowback and Produced Water Technical Roundtable". Dr. Stewart said, "Congress asked the EPA to study these issues, and our role is to discuss future regulations including using frac flowback and produced water for beneficial use".  Dave Stewart has patented technologies and processes that work together for Energy Water Solutions clients to filter frac flowback and produced water and turn it to clean fresh water.  This clean water still needs state legislation passed, to be ground discharged in some states for beneficial energy and agricultural uses.

Energy Water Solutions' Dr. Dave Stewart participated in several meetings on expert panels at the invitation of the EPA, to discuss how hydraulic fracturing could affect drinking water resources.  Representative energy company participants on this EPA frack water committee include Chesapeake Energy Corporation, Chevron, HighMount, Newfield Energy, Range Resources, Southwestern Energy as well as regulatory officials from the Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining, Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, Railroad Commission of Texas and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.  You may see the list of expert participants on the frac flowback and produced water panel and their bios at: www.epa.gov/hfstudy/pdfs/flowback-bio.pdf

The Environmental Protection Agency has scheduled a public webinar for today January 11, 2013 at 9:00 AM Central time as an update to the Hydraulic Fracturing Study progress report.  To register for this public webinar please login to:  www.cluin.org/conf/tio/FRACJan11/

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
