EPA's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response offers technical assistance as a means for finding new opportunities for reducing the environmental footprint of remedies by advancing acceptance and implementation of green remediation BMPs. Site managers and other stakeholders may directly submit a general inquiry about green remediation strategies. Site-specific technical assistance also is available to Federal Superfund remedial project managers (RPMs).
Examples of Areas of General Interest
- Using renewable energy from solar, wind, and hydro sources to power energy-intensive treatment
- Developing waste-to-energy systems that enhance pollution prevention
- Coupling sustainable reuse with remediation designs, construction, and implementation
- Implementing and documenting other green remediation strategies to conserve water and other natural resources and foster environmental stewardship
