Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable
EPA Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response- Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation

Description of activity: The Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable (FRTR) is an interagency working group chaired by EPA that promotes cooperation among member agencies to further the development and use of new technologies for improved remediation of hazardous wastes stes. The Roundtable works to build a collaborative atmosphere among federal agencies involved in hazardous waste site cleanup. The FRTR was established to bring together top federal cleanup program managers and other remediation community representatives who meet twice a year to share information and learn about technology-related efforts of mutual interest. The technical topics for this year’s meetings were Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (DNAPL) Remediation and Monitored Natural Attenuation and In Situ Bioremediation of Inorganics.

A major activity of the Roundtable is the collection and distribution of information from federal and state agencies on the use of new technology at their sites.  Each year, the Roundtable compiles cost and performance reports and makes them available at the Web site www.frtr.gov.  A total of 752 case studies are now available with the recent addition of 38 new reports.

Interagency partners:  Primary members of the FRTR include the U.S. Department of Defense, Department of Energy, U. S. Geological Service , National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency.
