A major challenge exists to remove, neutralize, or recover contaminants from aqueous and solid wastes associated with mining and/or mineral processing activities. To meet this challenge, a center for testing, evaluating, and verifying remedial technologies for application to liquid and solid mine waste has been established. The paper describes the National Environmental Waste Technology Testing and Evaluation Center (NEWTTEC) and the Mine Waste Technology Pilot Program (MWTPP). The MWTPP is an on-going program funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and implemented through an Interagency Agreement with the Department of Energy (DOE). The paper also describes the status of the NEWTTEC and MWTPP programs.
