Pollution, Toxins, & Disposal Concerns
Unconventional oil and gas development produces billions of tons of waste annually. Waste products from shale gas operations include:

1. Liquid waste such as brine and flowback water
2. Sludges and semi-solids like tank bottoms
3. Concentrated TENORM (technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive material)
4. Filter cake, filter socks, and material residues
5. Solid waste such as drill cuttings

These photos illuminate the pollutive tendencies of fossil fuel industries, the potential toxins they produce, and the irresponsible methods used to dispose of dangerous waste materials.
