Environment

Newpark’s technologies afford our customers the opportunity to enhance operational efficiency while lowering environmental impact.

Within our Mats business for example, all Newpark DURA-BASE mats and pins are 100% recyclable and require 75% less energy to manufacture than traditional timber mats. With the ability to transport up to three times the surface area of DURA-BASE mats per truck than traditional timber mats, our products reduce the volume of trucks required and resulting emissions in the communities in which we operate.

Within our Fluids business, the Evolution suite of products are water-based systems that minimize environmental impact, reducing cuttings, as well as remediation and disposal requirements.
