The paper provides the reader with an overview of the cost estimation approach employed by the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program. The paper identifies 4 areas of concern which confront the cost analyst as the question of technology cost is considered. These concerns are then addressed through a 5 part cost methodology subsequently employed on all SITE technology demonstrations. The final section of the paper review the cost data gathered from the first nine technology demonstrations completed and reported on.
