FRx provides specialty injection and delivery services in support of soil, bedrock, and groundwater remediation. In situ remediation technologies such as soil vapor extraction, bioremediation, pump and treat, and induction of oxidative or reductive conditions offer cost effective alternatives to conventional excavation and disposal methods.
FRx was founded in 1994 and continued development and deployment of efficient, innovative, and cost-effective injection technologies has been a primary focus ever since. The company founders conceived and developed many reliable techniques and technologies while serving as principal investigators for several research and development projects sponsored by the USEPA in the 1980’s.
FRx personnel are experts in the field of applying hydraulic fracturing technology for environmental remediation purposes. Our principals pioneered hydraulic fracturing technologies to significantly enhance flow conditions in the subsurface, thereby improving the effectiveness of many remedial applications. These hydraulic fractures can be created with granular, reactive materials and can be composed of chemicals, nutrients, and/or biological entities that enhance passive treatment systems.
In situ remediation technologies such as soil vapor extraction, bioremediation, pump and treat, and induction of oxidative or reductive conditions offer cost effective alternatives to conventional excavation and disposal methods. However, these applications are dependent upon fluid (gas or liquid) movement through the formation, and therefore may prove to be cost prohibitive or ineffective at contaminated sites without injection and delivery enhancements.
In addition to pioneering the industry, FRx employs a vast variety of hydraulic fracturing techniques. As project demands require, we are able to change techniques with complete flexibility to deliver the desired results.
FRx does not perform high volume hydraulic fracturing “fracking” for the purpose of stimulating gas wells in deep shale formations has attracted considerable attention lately. For additional info please click here.
