GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Remediation: Incorporating Sustainable Environmental Practices into Remediation

Title:
Green Remediation: Incorporating Sustainable Environmental Practices into Remediation

Abstract:
The Green Remediation: Incorporating Sustainable Environmental Practices into Remediation of Contaminated Sites technology primer was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI). As part of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the U.S. EPA is dedicated to developing and promoting innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promote environmental stewardship. The practice of "green remediation" uses strategies to consider all environmental effects of remedy implementation for contaminated sites and incorporates options to maximize the net environmental benefit of cleanup actions.
