Optimization of remediation systems may include actions that improve protectiveness, reduce cost, and/or shorten cleanup time associated with the remedy (i.e., improving effectiveness and/or efficiency). The following categories provide information that describes general optimization tools and processes, broad-based optimization projects, and related documents.
Links to general optimization methodologies, such as the Remedial System Evaluation (RSE) process developed by the US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) and Remediation Process Optimization (RPO) developed by the Air Force Center of Environmental Excellence (AFCEE).
Links to documents that provide information related to broad-based optimization of remediation systems, case studies, etc.
