  • Kay Armstrong Corners the Market in Hazardous Waste Cleanups and Community Relations

    The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) created the Hazardous Substance Superfund. It was intended to be a short-term program that would spend $1.6 billion over five years to clean up 400 hazardous sites around the country. Instead, more than $17 billion has been spent and only 212 sites (15% of the 1,439 listed since its inception) have been ...

  • Waste Disposal

    Introduction The final step in the waste management process is waste disposal, the permanent isolation of waste. Some wastes can be managed and disposed safely with existing facilities and proven methods. Other Department of Energy (DOE) wastes require more complex disposal facilities. DOE has conducted extensive research into alternative waste disposal methods and has concluded that deep ...

  • Car Engines Air Filters. A Useful Ambient Air Sampler and/or a Possible Hazardous Waste?

    Car-engine air filters (CAFs) have been recently used as inexpensive alternative air sampling media for hydrophobic organic compounds such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and furans and also for heavy metals. This “active-passive” sampling methodology is a promising way for urban air monitoring, being able to offer invaluable advantages. Two ...

In the Review the Commission gives clear preference to minimization and ...


  • Field monitoring and numerical modeling as tools in effect-evaluation of waste heat and chlorination byproducts via cooling water discharges

    Power plants and other industrial facilities apply cooling water to remove waste heat from their condensers and heat exchangers. These industries are obliged to predict the thermal and environmental effects on the water bodies on which the discharge takes place in order minimize negative impact on aquatic organisms. The general approach of EC Water Framework Directive acquires the evaluation of ...
