EPA's SITE (Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation) program is entering its third year. It is designed to speed up hazardous waste treatment technology. The program helps fund demonstrations of incinerators, biological systems, solidification units, etc. To receive funding, the technologies must provide a permanent solution to hazardous waste problems. Of the 22 technologies in the program, three have completed full scale testing. Two additional technologies will complete testing by February, 1988. SITE has also started an Emerging Technologies program, for hazardous waste treatments early in development. In this program, EPA will help fund pilot-scale testing.
