Program details:

The remediation industry has grown over the past half century from extremely simple approaches to remove gross contamination like excavation to very intricate assessment and remedial designs involving multiple technologies like bioremediation and chemical reduction.  As the industry expanded to include more types of contaminants and more situations, the universe of assessment and remedial technologies grew in complexity to meet the goals of each practitioner and each individual site.  In the mid 1990's a need was recognized to better understand and coordinate innovative environmental technology efforts throughout a number of states. This led to the formation of the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC).

ITRC is a public-private coalition working to reduce the barriers associated with the use of innovative air, water, waste, and remediation environmental technologies and processes.  ITRC funds Teams that produce documents and training programs that broaden and deepen technical knowledge to help expedite quality regulatory decision making.  These products help state environmental agencies and others gain valuable technical knowledge and develop consistent regulatory approaches for reviewing and approving specific technologies.  Although focused on providing information for state regulators, ITRC's documents and training are publically available.   

This presentation will introduce the participants to the resources available through ITRC through a real time review of one or more Team products on the ITRC web site.  Also to be discussed will be ITRC's tentative initiatives for 2018.
