In 1986, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (USEPA's) Offices of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, and Research and Development established a technology research, demonstration, and evaluation program to promote the development and use of innovative technologies. Called the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation, or SITE program, the program will help provide the treatment technologies necessary to implement new cleanup standards that require a greater reliance on permanent remedies at Superfund sites. The SITE program, directed by the Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory, has been focused along three lines: (1) a full-scale demonstration program; (2) an emerging technologies development program; and (3) innovative technologies development within the USEPA. As of August 1988, 29 technologies are in the Demonstration Program. The Emerging Technologies Program was initiated in 1987. In July 1988, the first seven technologies were accepted into the program. The Innovative Technologies Program is an outgrowth of technologies that have been primarily developed through the USEPA's lead. The portion of the SITE program fosters the further development of USEPA technologies by firms that are willing to commercialize these technologies for use at Superfund sites.
