The SiteWise(tm) Tool for Green and Sustainable Remediation is designed to calculate the environmental footprint of remedial alternatives generally used by the industry. The tool comprises a series of Microsoft Excel sheets and currently provides a detailed baseline assessment of several quantifiable sustainability metrics, including greenhouse gases; energy usage; criteria air pollutants, such as sulfur oxides, oxides of nitrogen, and particulate matter; water usage; resource consumption; and accident risk. The tool has been updated to include incremental cost due to footprint reduction activities as well as life cycle impacts for all global impacts of all remedial activities included in the tool. SiteWise(tm) was developed jointly by Battelle, the U.S. Navy, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). This tool can be applied at remedy selection, design, or implementation stage. It is available on an as-is basis without guarantee or warranty of any kind, express or implied. Implementation of the SiteWise(tm) tool and interpretation or use of the results provided by the tool are the sole responsibility of the user. The tool is provided free of charge for anyone to use, but is not supported in any way by the Navy, USACE, or Battelle. fesc_pp/environmental/erb/resourceerb/ug-2092-env_sitewisetm-v2_2011-06.pdf SiteWise(tm) is available through the Navy's ER Technology Transfer portal at
