Looking Forward: Innovative Remedial and Risk Assessment Approaches to CERCLA


October 12, 2017


Newark, NJ (and webinar)

An ELI Public Seminar

The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), commonly known as Superfund, requires responsible parties to clean-up and remediate contaminated sites. Many states have similar local requirements. In the 35 years since the law was passed, there have been major advances in the technology used for assessments of damages, determination of risks, and remedial activities. This half-day conference looked ahead to emerging trends in technology and regulation. Topics included:

  • Risk assessment strategies designed to streamline and economize due diligence
  • Approaches to working with regulatory agencies
  • Cutting-edge technologies at remediation sites  including a discussion of the application of the STAR and ISTD technologies
  • Solar optimization at contaminated and remediated sites
