PARKER, R. A. The Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation Program SUMMARY AND CLOSURE REPORT. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/540/R-11/001, 2011.
To summarize the progress and findings of the SITE Program from FY 2005 - FY 2009 and to list all the projects that were completed during the program's history.
The Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program promoted the development, commercialization, and implementation of innovative hazardous waste treatment technologies for 20 years. SITE offered a mechanism for conducting joint technology demonstration and evaluation projects at hazardous waste sites involving the private sector, EPA, and other federal and state agencies. The program provided environmental decision makers with relevant data on new and viable remediation technologies regarding performance or cost advantages compared to conventional treatment technologies. The overall goal of the SITE Program was to carry out the development and demonstration of alternative or innovative treatment technologies applicable to response actions at cleanup sites to achieve long-term protection of human health and the environment. EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) conducted the SITE Program through FY 2005. In FY 2005, ORD initiated closure of the SITE Program. This report summarizes the progress and findings of the SITE Program from FY 2005 - FY 2009 and contains a listing of all projects completed during the program's history.
