Correction for ‘Wastewater from hydraulic fracturing in the UK: assessing the viability and cost of management’ by M. C. O'Donnell et al., Environ. Sci.: Water Res. Technol., 2018, DOI: 10.1039/c7ew00474e.


There were errors in the third last sentence of the abstract.

The sentence “We find that the projected salinity in FP waters from UK hydraulic fracturing operations can be treated at a cost of between $2701 (∼£2000) and $1[thin space (1/6-em)]376[thin space (1/6-em)]093 (∼£1[thin space (1/6-em)]047[thin space (1/6-em)]000) per well, requiring between 2 and 26% of expected revenue.” should be replaced by the following:

 

“We find that the projected contaminants in FP waters from UK hydraulic fracturing operations can be treated at a cost of between $107[thin space (1/6-em)]683 (∼£80[thin space (1/6-em)]000) and $1[thin space (1/6-em)]376[thin space (1/6-em)]093 (∼£1[thin space (1/6-em)]047[thin space (1/6-em)]000) per well, with a P50 value of $459[thin space (1/6-em)]472, requiring between 2 and 26% of expected revenue.”

 

The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
