A Message from
Our Founder

In today’s market, I see both an imperative and opportunity to reduce costs and improve environmental performance.

I have devoted most of my career to water solutions for industry and the environment that improve economic sustainability both in lowering costs and environmental impacts.

Years of experience in water logistics and technology have informed my efforts and the team at Trace Water Solutions to harness and extend existing infrastructure and leverage technology to cost effectively recycle precious water.

Now I am thrilled that we can offer the solution. Through Trace Water’s n-SOX non-chemical treatment, 100% of frac flowback can be re-used, dramatically lowering costs by reducing disposal and fluid transportation costs while providing reliable frac water sources.

Now we can reverse the water costs and impacts for the industry, for the economy and for the environment in deploying Trace Water Solutions.
