Delivering World Class Service with a Commitment to Reduce the Environmental Impact

ProFrac strives to reduce emissions and roll out initiatives that help protect our environment. Our Tier IV pumps run on dual fuel, cutting emission by up to 27% for CO2e and 80% less NOX. Running dual fuel also reduces the amount of diesel fuel deliveries on site by up to 50%.

The Engine Standby Controller (ESC) replaces existing hydraulic start and wet kits on frac units to enable automatic power down during idling. This automatic power-down decreases the carbon footprint by up to 388 metrics tons and eliminates 80% of idle time.

ProFrac strives to quantify the carbon footprint of our operations and identify specific reduction targets by the end of 2021.
