Short description: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the Remediation Technologies Development Forum (RTDF) in 1992 to enhance the development and application of innovative hazardous waste characterization and treatment technologies. One of the RTDF's defining features is that it fosters collaboration between the public and private sectors. Eight self-managed RTDF Action Teams formed over the years. Each brought together representatives from government, industry, and academia to further develop and promote a specific technology or address a specific environmental problem area. Action Team members provided the knowledge and the resources (both in terms of monetary contributions and in-kind services) needed to conduct laboratory and field demonstrations and develop reports, guidance documents, and training products related to their teams' topic of interest. This factsheet highlights the RTDF Action Teams' major accomplishments (August 2006, 4 pages).
