Abstract : EPA is committed to identifying the most effective and efficient means of addressing the thousands of hazardous waste sites in the United States. Therefore, the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response's (OSWER's) Technology Innovation Office (TIO) at EPA is working in conjunction with the EPA Regions and research centers, and industry to identify and further the implementation of innovative treatment technologies. Currently, bioremediation is a frequently selected innovative technology. The goal of OSWER is to encourage the development and use of innovative hazardous waste treatment technologies. One way of enhancing the use of these technologies is to ensure that decision-makers can avail themselves of the most current information on technologies, policies, and other sources of assistance. To this end, this Guide, which identifies documents that can directly assist RPMs and permit writers in investigating existing information on bioremediation remedial applications for contaminants usually found at RCRA, UST, and CERCLA sites, was prepared.
