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:

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.
