J. Shocklev and J. Breckenridge, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Hazardous Toxic and Radioactive Waste Center of Expertise The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) plays a significant role in the restoration of the nation's hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste (HTRW) sites. In addition to addressing U.S. Army needs, the Corps' environmental restoration activities include support of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Superfund program and provision of remediation assistance to other federal agencies such as the Air Force and Department of Energy.

The Corps is also responsible for restoration of property formerly owned or used by the U.S. Department of Defense. Contaminants commonly found on HTRW sites include explosive wastes, solvents, petroleum products, heavy metals, and mixtures. To achieve more effective HTRW cleanups, the Corps is turning to innovative technologies.

Innovative technologies may be generally defined as lacking full-scale cost and performance data. The Corps is moving forward with innovative technologies on four fronts: first, the Innovative Technology Advocate (ITA) Program was initiated to foster the use of innovative technologies; second, the research, development, and demonstration program is making new technologies available for environmental remediation; third, the Corps is developing guidance documents on the application and design requirements for innovative technologies; and fourth, Corps districts are using innovative technologies to remediate sites.

Key words: HTRW sites, cleanup, innovative technologies
