The Field Implementation of Bioremediation: An EPA Perspective
As we approach the treatment of hazardous wastes, which are increasingly more diverse with respect to the contaminants and the contaminated matrices, we will be more reliant on innovative technologies for improved treatment efficiencies and lower costs. To meet these objectives, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Administrator, William Reilly, has sought to develop an agenda for the 1990’s to identify strategies for increasing the use of bioremediation for the treatment of hazardous wastes. To develop this agenda, assistance has been received from biotreatment companies, site cleanup contractors, industry, academia, environmental organizations, and other Federal agencies, in addition to the various offices within EPA.
