Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) technology allows modern societies to access energy, water resources, high-speed internet, and other essential utilities with minimal environmental and operational disruptions. Superabsorbent polymer (SAP) technologies are integral to the HDD industry for their ability to rapidly solidify drilling fluid waste (drilling mud, drill cuttings) at the source of generation, at centralized waste treatment facilities, and at solid waste landfills.
When compared to commodity absorbents and cement products, SAP-based technologies feature superior liquid absorbency and retention which allows HDD crews to minimize waste disposal costs, treatment time, and environmental impact.
