SYNOPSES OF FEDERAL DEMONSTRATIONS OF INNOVATIVE REMEDIATION TECHNOLOGIES
U.S. EPA. SYNOPSES OF FEDERAL DEMONSTRATIONS OF INNOVATIVE REMEDIATION TECHNOLOGIES. EPA/540/8-91/009, 1991.
This collection of abstracts, compiled by the Federal Remediation Technology Roundtable, describes field demonstrations of innovative technologies to treat hazardous waste. The collection is intended to be an information resource for hazardous waste site project managers for assessing the availability and viability of innovative technologies for treating contaminated ground water, soils, and sludge. It is also intended to assist government agencies coordinate ongoing hazardous waste remediation technology research initiatives, particularly those sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Innovative technologies, for the purposes of this compendium, are defined as those technologies for which detailed performance and cost data are not readily available. The demonstrations contained herein have all been sponsored by EPA, DoD, and DOE. In total, 75 demonstrations in seven different technology categories are described. A matrix listing these demonstrations, the type of contaminant, media that can be treated, and the treatment setting for each innovative technology is provided in Exhibit 1 on page vii. This document represents a starting point in the review of technologies available for application to hazardous waste sites. This compendium should not be looked upon as a sole source for this information - it does not represent all innovative technologies nor all technology demonstrations performed by these agencies. Only Federally-sponsored studies and demonstrations that have tested innovative remedial technologies with site specific wastes under realistic conditions as a part of a full-scale field demonstration are included. Those studies included represent all that were provided to the Federal Remediation Technology Roundtable at the time of publication. Information collection efforts are ongoing.
