Remediation Journal: Sustainable Remediation Panel 02

The second installment from the Sustainable Remediation Panel is now available in the Remediation Journal (Volume 19, Issue 4 , Pages 135-139, Wiley Periodicals, Inc., A Wiley Company, Autumn 2009).  SURF members Carol Baker, Maile Smith, and David Woodward contributed responses to this issue's question:

"Regulators seem to currently be focusing on green remediation and not sustainable remediation.  How can the industry change this perception so that a more holistic approach is followed?"

Each issue, Remediation will pose an interesting question related to sustainable remediation to the Sustainable Remediation Panel, a group of 12 remediation professionals and SURF members. In the Summer 2009 issue, the question posed was "How should regulatory agencies incorporate sustainable remediation into cleanup programs? Can this be completed within the existing structure of CERCLA, RCRA, and state voluntary programs or would legislation amending the regulations be warranted?" The responses to that question can be found in the SURF library, as Sustainable Remediation Panel 01.  Contact the authors listed above for a copy of the responses to this issue's question.
