The Waste-management Education & Research Consortium (WERC) was initiated in 1990 to meet the personnel and technology needs for environmental restoration at Department of Energy (DOE) sites and elsewhere. Since its beginning, WERC has conducted 166 project years (number of projects times number of years) and has graduated over 200 engineers and scientists from the member institutions. Part of WERC's mission is to deliver advanced technologies to the field demonstration stage for evaluation. This paper describes WERC, those technologies which have entered field demonstration, and how the technology development and education have enhanced one another.
