I think one of the obtuse portions of the article is exactly what you refer to.

All the glass is a 96 COE although all bottle glass is 83-85. The range on the bottles is accurate. The other? Pure BS. Sand is about 85% from nice beaches? Where could that come from?

As is frequently the situation with news, there's a shred of truth to the dramatic stuff that plays well. The reality is rather different.

How could one additive make everything mysteriously a 96 regardless of percentages? I had usually run with the number 95% for the silica. If John is right, I'm off. It is true that clean silica is being used in exorbitant quantities in fracking.
