LEMIEUX, P. M. U.S. EPA R&D PROGRAM FOR DISPOSAL OF BUILDING DECONTAMINATION RESIDUE. Presented at Department of Homeland Security R&D Partnership Conference, Boston, MA, April 27 - 28, 2005.

Description:

Symposium Paper

Purpose/Objective:

In the event of a terrorist attack on buildings, transportation hubs, or other structures where chemical or biological agents are used, significant quantities of building decontamination residue (BDR) can be generated during cleanup and restoration activities. This paper describes the U.S. EPA's current program to 1) consolidate available information and lessons learned for BDR disposal into technical guidance for responders, permitting agencies, and the disposal industry; and 2) perform experimental research to help close existing data gaps.
