Over the next 20 to 30 years, federal, state, and local govenments and private industry will commit billions of dollars annually to clean up sites contaminated with hazardous waste and petroleum products. The report captures information on the future demand for remediation services for all major cleanup programs in the U.S., including Superfund, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) corrective action, underground storage tanks, state programs, and federal agencies such as the Departments of Defense and Energy. The market information should help innovative technology vendors, developers and investors direct their research, development, and commercialization efforts towards pertinent waste programs and problems. Improved access to data on domestic markets will help direct the development of new technology and strengthen U.S. capabilities in environmental cleanup. As companies acquire field experience in this country, they will be better equipped to compete internationally.
