Description:

The Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program, now in its eleventh year, is an integral part of EPA's research into alternative cleanup methods for hazardous waste sites around the nation. The SITE Program was created to encourage the development and routine use of innovative treatment and monitoring and measurement technologies. Under the program, EPA enters into cooperative agreements with technology developers. These developers research and refine their innovative technologies at bench-or pilot-scale and then, with EPA's support, demonstrate them at hazardous waste sites. As a result, the SITE Program provides environmental decision-makers with data on new, viable treatment technologies that may have performance or cost advantages compared to traditional treatment technologies. This document, prepared between August 1996 and December 1996, is intended as a reference guide for those interested in technologies participating in the SITE Demonstration, Emerging Technology, and Characterization and Monitoring Programs. The two-page profiles are organized into two sections for each program, completed and ongoing projects, and are presented in alphabetical order by developer name. Reference tables for SITE Program participants precede the sections and contain EPA and developer contacts. Inquiries about a SITE technology evaluation or the SITE Program should be directed to the specific EPA project manager; inquiries on the technology process should be directed to the specific technology developer. Each technology profile contains (1) a technology developer and process name, (2) a technology description, including a schematic diagram or photograph of the process, (3) a discussion of waste applicability, (4) a project status report, and (5) EPA project manager and technology developer contacts. The profiles also include summaries of demonstration results, if available. The technology description and waste applicability sections are written by the developer. EPA prepares the status and demonstration results sections. A Trade Name Index and Applicability Index and are also included in the back of this document. The Applicability Index is organized by 11 media categories, 19 waste categories, and 14 technology type categories.
