Federal Regulations: How They Impact Research and Commercialization of Biological Treatment

  • Sue Markland Day
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 41)

Abstract

Biology-based waste treatment is a creature of this nation’s environmental protection laws. Without the Superfund; water, solid and hazardous waste management programs; and the requirement for remediation of leaking underground storage tanks, little research would be underway and little commercial demand would exist for bioremediation.
