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

Link

http://clu-in.org/market/

Description

This study describes the future demand for remediation services in all of the major cleanup programs in the U.S., including Superfund, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) corrective action, underground storage tanks, state programs, and federal agencies such as the Departments of Defense and Energy (DoD and DOE). The data on each program include the number of sites that remain to be cleaned up, general site and waste characteristics, and other factors that affect the demand for remediation services. While the report considers a broad range of remediation services required in the future, its purpose is to provide insight into the potential application of new treatment technologies.
