Catalina Fracturing


Catalina Fracturing uses non-explosive technology to separate rock with minimal impact on the surrounding environment. This technology is paramount for construction sites in proximity to residential areas, businesses, or protected landmarks. The non-explosive technology consists of liquid Carbon dioxide being converted to a high-pressure gas followed by ignition. After ignition, the Carbon dioxide gas travels through existing cracks and fissures in the rock and breaks apart the particles, rather than compressing the particles with a traditional explosion. The end results of fracturing consist of reduced noise, vibration, and uncontrollable debris.
