The Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program, now
in its thirteenth year, is an integral part of EPA's research into
alternative cleanup methods for hazardous waste sites around the nation.
The SITE Program was created to encourage the development and routine
use of innovative treatment and monitoring and measurement technologies.
Under the program, EPA enters into cooperative agreements with technology
developers. These developers research and refine their innovative
technologies at bench- or pilot-scale and then, with EPA's support,
demonstrate them at hazardous waste sites. As a result, the SITE Program
provides environmental decision-makers with data on new, viable treatment
technologies that may have performance or cost advantages compared
to traditional treatment technologies.
The SITE profiles documents, prepared between July 1998 and October 1999, are intended as a reference guide for those interested in technologies participating in the
The two–page profiles are organized into two sections for each program (except for the MMT Program) for completed and ongoing projects, and are presented in alphabetical order by developer name. Reference tables for SITE Program participants precede the sections and contain EPA and developer contacts. Inquiries about a SITE technology evaluation or the SITE Program should be directed to the specific EPA project manager; inquiries on the technology process should be directed to the specific technology developer. Each technology profile contains
The profiles also include summaries of demonstration results, if available. The technology description and waste applicability sections are written by the developer. EPA prepares the status and demonstration results sections. A Trade Name Index and Applicability Index are also included in the back of each volume. The Trade Name Index allows the reader to identify a technology based on trade name, current company name, and former company name. The Applicability Index is organized by 11 media categories, 19 waste categories, and 14 technology type categories. E-mail contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
