ENDS special report: UK shale gas and the environment
ENDS has published a special report looking at the real environmental implications of fracking and the key sustainability challenges facing onshore shale oil and gas projects.
With projects from Lancashire to Sussex subject to continual arguments about their impacts, ENDS decided it was time to take an objective look at the issue.
'UK shale gas and the environment' examines both the local and global environmental impacts of exploratio, from water use to climate change, and asks whether they are a cause for concern and how they can be mitigated.
It also provides full details of the regulatory and planning regimes surrounding developments and explores what hurdles they pose to projects.
It is the first comprehensive report of its kind and will be invaluable to developers, councils and anyone else with an interest in this emerging industry.
