Romero's first-place project was "Finding a Beneficial Use for Produced Water."
Romero, in her fourth year working on the subject, has learned produced water from oil and gas drilling is useful in potash mining. Romero found this situation true when a nanotechnology membrane was employed to hold back the hydrocarbons and allow the salt and water to pass. She has also studied use of produced water for irrigation.
"Since there's such a scarcity of water here in New Mexico, I wanted to find another source of water for irrigation and other uses of water," Romero said. "And produced water is a large source."
Much of that water is now disposed of as hazardous water, she continued.
