Abstracts of Remediation Case Studies

  • Engineering Bulletin: Technology Alternatives for the Remediation of Soils Contaminated with As, Cd, Cr, Hg, and Pb (PDF) (21 pp, 89K). EPA 540/S-97/500.
    This publication provides remediation managers with information to facilitate the selection of appropriate remedial alternatives for soils contaminated with As, Cd, Cr, Hg, and Pb [August 1997, 19 pages]. This bulletin primarily condenses information included in a more comprehensive Technical Resource Document entitled, Contaminants and Remedial Options at Selected Metal-Contaminated Sites.

  • EPA's Environmental Technology Verification Program (PDF) (2 pp, 370K). EPA 600-F-95-005.
    This brochure, produced by the ORD ETV Program, outlines EPA's 12 technology verification pilot programs.

  • Guide for Conducting Treatability Studies Under CERCLA: Soil Washing Interim Guidance (PDF) (46 pp, 430K). EPA 540-2-91-020.
    Download Quick Reference Fact Sheet (PDF) (8 pp, 519K)
    This document provides guidance for planning, implementing, and evaluating soil washing treatability tests to support the remedy evaluation process for Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) sites.

  • Innovative Remediation Technologies: Field-Scale Demonstration Projects in North America, 2nd Edition (PDF) (139 pp, 511K). EPA 542-B-00-004.
    A revision and expansion of the EPA publication Completed North American Innovative Technology Demonstration Projects, the project information in the new document is now available in an online, searchable database of ongoing and completed field demonstrations of innovative remediation technologies sponsored by government agencies working in partnership with private technology developers to bring new technologies into the hazardous waste remediation marketplace.

  • In Situ Treatment of Contaminated Sediments (PDF) (33 pp, 3.2MB)
    This report was prepared under grant for EPA by Jon Renholds, a National Network of Environmental Management Studies fellow. The document is intended to provide a basic summary and current status of in situ treatment technologies for the remediation of contaminated sediments. It is not intended to be an inclusive report; it merely provides an overview of the existing work in the field on in situ treatment techniques. The information was gathered from a range of available sources, including project documents, reports, periodicals, Internet searches, and personal communication with involved parties.

  • On-Site Incineration: Overview of Superfund Operating Experience (PDF) (37 pp, 166K)
    Fifteen case studies were prepared to obtain additional data on operating experience for completed incineration projects. This report summarizes the 15 case studies, provides technology descriptions, and makes general observations based on individual applications.

  • On-Site Incineration at Superfund Sites Exit Disclaimer
    These reports present cost and performance data for the application of on-site incineration of contaminated soil at Superfund sites.

  • Recent Developments for In Situ Treatment of Metal Contaminated Soils (PDF) (64 pp, 561K). EPA 542-R-97-004
    This report assists the remedy selection process by providing information on four in situ technologies for treating soil contaminated with metals. The four approaches are electrokinetic remediation, phytoremediation, soil flushing, and solidification/stabilization.

  • Remediation Technologies Screening Matrix Exit EPA Disclaimer
    The remediation technologies screening matrix is a user-friendly tool to screen for technologies for a remediation project. The matrix allows you to screen through 64 in situ and ex situ technologies for either soil or groundwater remediation. Variables used in screening include contaminants, development status, overall cost, and cleanup time. In-depth information on each technology is also available, including direct links to over 209 cost and performance reports written by members of the Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable.

  • Solidification/Stabilization Resource Guide (PDF) (91 pp, 1.4MB). EPA 542-B-99-002
    This Solidification/Stabilization Resource Guide is intended to inform site cleanup managers of recently-published materials such as field reports and guidance documents that address issues relevant to solidification/stabilization technologies. In addition to a short abstract for each of the resources listed, the guide includes a look-up table that allows the user to quickly scan the contents. Information on how to obtain a specific document also is included.

  • Solidification/Stabilization Use at Superfund Sites (PDF) (23 pp, 1MB). EPA 542-R-00-010
    To provide interested stakeholders such as project managers, technology service providers, consulting engineers, site owners, and the general public with the most recent information about solidification/stabilization applications at Superfund sites, as well as information about trends in use, specific types of applications, and cost, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) performed a review and analysis of solidification/stabilization applications and prepared this summary.
