Cleaning Up the Nation's Waste Sites: Markets and Technology Trends

EPA's Cleaning Up the Nation's Waste Sites: Markets and Technology Trends (2004 Edition), provides a overview of the US market for the cleanup of sites contaminated with hazardous waste and petroleum products. The report covers the Nation's seven major cleanup markets, namely Superfund, RCRA Corrective Action, DoD, DOE, USTs, Civilian Federal Agencies, and State Voluntary cleanup programs. It targets industry and government officials preparing research, development, and business strategies. The information it presents is intended to support those who are developing, commercializing, and marketing new cleanup technologies to meet the future demand. In addition to providing estimates of future cleanup efforts across the Nation, the report provides insightful analyses of each of the seven market segments, including the following:

  • Market description: nature of the program and regulatory requirements and practices
  • Market size: number of sites and cost of cleanup work needed
  • Site characteristics: contaminants, media, and other factors that affect technology demand
  • Economic, political, and technical factors that affect demand for cleanup services
  • Relevant technology trends and issues by market segment

In addition to providing updates and new information relating to the seven market segments, this report also includes analyses of remediation needs in three market "niches," each of which presents a specific set of remediation challenges—the cleanup of former manufactured gas plant (MGP) and other coal tar sites, mining sites, and drycleaner sites; and two specific issues that affect hazardous waste sites in most remediation programs—site characterization technology, and the remediation of dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs).
