Bill Slack is one of the two principals of FRx, Inc., an environmental remediation company focused on providing in situ soil fracturing and injection services for over twenty years. In addition to managing the day-to-day administrative and accounting operations, Bill also directs the engineering and development of new soil fracturing and injection processes, tools, and equipment to refine and enhance the capabilities for in situ remediation of soil, bedrock, and groundwater.
Prior to forming FRx with Larry Murdoch, Bill and Larry directed the US EPA research projects that examined the feasibility of using fracturing methods to support soil remediation, adapted the technologies then practiced by the petroleum industry, and conducted the first application of fracturing at a contaminated site. Their names appear in the earliest and key publications concerning enhancement of remediation processes. For the last twenty years, Bill has continued to be a prolific researcher and contributor to the soil fracturing body of knowledge through peer-reviewed journals and conference presentations.
Bill has a Ph.D. and an M.S. in Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University. He is a Professional Engineer in Ohio and Kentucky and holds numerous professional certifications applicable to environmental remediation.
