The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the Remediation Technologies Development Forum (RTDF) in 1992 to enhance the development and application of innovative hazardous waste characterization and treatment technologies.
Eight self-managed RTDF Action Teams have formed over the years. The last Action Team was established over 5 years ago and several teams have completed, or are no longer actively involved, in field demonstrations of new technologies. Therefore, as of the end of June 2006, active website maintenance will no longer be conducted. However, the website, including all RTDF products, will be available until at least 2016 and minor updates will be made on an as needed basis.
