What is Frac Sand And how is it used in fracking Silica sand mining Minnesota Pollution Control Agency

Frac sand plays an important role in the process of fracturing the shale to release natural gas oil and natural gas liquids from pores in the rock When the high pressure water stream forces the small perforations to become larger fractures frac sand holds these Some permits may have requirements specific to silica sand mining Under certain circumstances the MPCA may issue permits for sand storage sit Air permitting MPCA air permits are issued to sand and gravel mining facilities to control air emissions from combustion sources such as dryers or particulate matter such as blowing sand
