"Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a widespread technique used by
the oil and gas industry to obtain natural gas from shale rock, a type
of sedimentary rock that contains hydrocarbons that cannot be recovered
using conventional techniques. The process involves drilling thousands
of feet into the Earth’s subsurface and injecting a special mixture of
water, sand and chemicals to crack the rock and release the gas.
Since approximately one quarter of the fluid returns to the surface
through the process, the chemical composition of the returning fluid is
of interest to researchers. Studies have shown previously that the
wastewater liquid that flows back after fracking contains elements that
were not part of the initial solution."

that emerged in response to the lack of commitment by federal government(s) to build a new research reactor in Canada for nearly 2 decades.
