ReFINE is the leading independent research consortium on
fracking, led jointly by Newcastle University and Durham
University. With support from academics across Europe and North
America, the consortium focuses on researching the potential risks
of shale gas and oil exploitation using fracking

- New research partners join ReFINE.
- ReFINE awarded funding for specialised research kit.
- Research paper on flowback fluid radioactivity
On 24th June 2014 ReFINE published a study into the
radioactivity of fracking flowback water in the journal
Environmental Science and Pollution Research. The
paper, entitled "The Flux of Radionuclides in
Flowback Fluid from Shale Gas Exploitation" is available for free
