Remediation Technologies Screening Matrix, Version 4.0 Section 1 - Introduction 
1.2 Background
Table of Contents


One of the distinctive attributes of environmental technology is that the state-of-the-art continually changes. To ensure that services and agencies within DoD, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), and EPA have the latest information regarding the status of environmentally applicable technologies, technology transfer documents are periodically updated and published. These publications provide a reference to site characterization, installation restoration (IR), hazardous waste control, and pollution prevention technologies. They increase technology awareness, enhance coordination, and aid in preventing duplication of environmental technology development efforts. Information contained in these documents is obtained from Federal research facilities as well as from private-sector vendors involved in research and development and implementation of methods to characterize and clean up contaminated sites and materials.

A list of U.S. Government reports documenting innovative and conventional site remediation technologies that are incorporated into this guide is presented in Table 1-1. These documents are described in greater detail in Appendix E.
