Company Profile

Pneumatic Fracturing, Inc. (PFI) is a full service environmental remediation firm dedicated to complete and satisfactory remediation of any sites that present an unusual challenge. Since its inception, PFI has provided its services to consulting, government and private organizations, focusing on subsurface injection of remedial products including the application of the patented Pneumatic Fracturing and Pneumatic Injection technologies. The successful implementation of these technologies or any injection method is critical to the success of the remediation. PFI spends time in the conceptual design phase and during field application to ensure that our client’s objectives are met. Adjustments can be applied in the field, if necessary, based on real-time observations. PFI takes great pride in careful consideration before mobilization and the ability to adapt in the field, which provides our clients with quality products.

PFI, a woman-owned business (WBE), was founded in October 2000 by Ms. Deborah L. Schnell, a graduate engineer of the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). While at NJIT, she studied under one of the original patent holders, Dr. John Schuring. PFI is a license holder in good standing recognized by the University as such with full authorization and support to practice the patented technologies. Ms. Schnell was also employed as an environmental engineering consultant where she focused her efforts on marketing and development of the technology for commercial application. Her extensive experience in remediation, innovative technologies and management skills gained as a consultant provided an excellent opportunity for Pneumatic Fracturing, Inc. to introduce a cost-effective cutting edge technology, focusing on working in conjunction with engineering and consulting firms.

Pneumatic Fracturing, Inc. considers its comprehensive intellectual property portfolio essential to the company’s future growth through internal development, licensing, and future merger and acquisition activities. PFI has established teaming arrangements and collaborative relationships with other specialty firms to provide clients a greater array of services which in turn create cost-effective solutions.
