Leading the Federal Government`s Efforts to Promote Interagency Cooperation to Advance the Use of Innovative Technologies to Cleanup Hazardous Waste Contamination. The Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable (FRTR) works to build a collaborative atmosphere among federal agencies involved in hazardous waste site cleanup.

FRTR was established in 1990 to bring together top federal cleanup program managers and other remediation community representatives to:

Share information and learn about technology-related efforts of mutual interest,
Discuss future directions of the national site remediation programs and their impact on the technology market,
Interact with similar state and private industry technology development programs, and
Form partnerships to pursue subjects of mutual interest.

FRTR members-agencies include:

  • U.S. Department of Defense
    • U.S. Air Force
    • U.S. Army
    • U.S. Navy
  • U.S. Department of Energy
  • U.S. Department of the Interior
  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • National Aeronautics and Space Administration

Since its inception, collaborative efforts among the FRTR member-agencies have led to technology development and demonstration partnerships with private developers, a more consistent and unified federal approach to technology evaluation and regulatory acceptance, and a variety of technology transfer tools and other information resources.


Environmental Cost Engineering

Promoting sound cost estimating practices, the use of advanced cost estimating techniques, and exchanging information about cost data collection lessons learned benefits public and private environmental project managers. This section provides the information project managers need to leverage and apply environmental cost engineering tools and access assistance from knowledgeable, experienced environmental cost engineering representatives in FRTR member ...

Remediation Optimization

Remediation Process Optimization (RPO) involves systematic monitoring and evaluation to detect and respond to changes in performance. System optimization offers benefits that include enhanced protectiveness, reduced cost, shortened cleanup times, and the increased likelihood of site closeout.


DST Matrix Abstract

Decision support tools (DSTs) are interactive software tools used by decision-makers to help answer questions, solve problems, and support or refute conclusions. They can be incorporated into a structured decision-making process for environment site clean-up. DSTs often support multiple functions, such as data acquisition, spatial data management, modeling, and cost estimating.
