Green Remediation Best Management Practices: Integrating Renewable Energy Published 2022
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Principles for Greener Cleanups outline the Agency's policy for evaluating and minimizing the environmental footprint of activities involved in cleaning up contaminated sites. management practices (BMPs) identified in EPA's series of green remediation fact sheets can help project managers and other stakeholders apply the principles on a routine basis, while maintaining the cleanup objectives, ensuring protectiveness of a remedy, and improving its environmental outcome. Renewable energy provides a significant opportunity to minimize energy- and air-related contributions to the environmental footprint of cleaning up hazardous waste sites. Use of renewable energy during site cleanup also can decrease burdens on local power grids and provide a backup supply of power.
