This seminar is a continuation in the series on international green and sustainable remediation (GSR) efforts (additional information on prior internet seminars can be found at http://cluin.org/consoil/). This two-hour seminar will: (1) present a US case study on greening Superfund cleanups at the Apache Powder, Arizona, site; (2) present a case study on how GSR efforts are being implemented in Central Europe; (3) discuss Austria's new tool for performing a cost-effectiveness analysis which integrates the environmental and socio-economic dimension of sustainability; (4) provide an update on developments that support EPA greener cleanups (e.g., EPA's environmental footprint methodology for estimating or quantifying a remediation site's footprint [www.clu-in.org/greenremediation/methodology/index.cfm], and the ASTM International effort to develop a voluntary consensus-based standard for greener cleanups [www.clu-in.org/greenremediation/subtab_b5.cfm]); (5) present updates on international GSR efforts; and (6) provide information on 2012 green and sustainable remediation internet seminars and conferences. An open forum will be held throughout the seminar to respond to participant questions.
