Original Time/Date of Presentation:

May 22, 2013, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM, EDT (17:00-19:00 GMT)

Presentation Overview:

The process of cleaning up a hazardous waste site uses energy, water and other natural or materials resources and consequently creates an environmental footprint of its own. In February 2012, the U.S. EPA released a methodology for quantifying the environmental footprints. The information obtained helps prioritize efforts to reduce the footprint and improve the outcome of cleanups under any regulatory program. This two-hour seminar will: (1) briefly discuss the regulatory framework; (2) summarize the methodology for estimating or quantifying the footprint and the associated metrics; (3) walk participants through the steps of performing an environmental footprint analysis; (4) present some questions for discussion and share lessons learned from early adopters. An open forum will be held after the presentations, during which participants will be able to submit questions and feedback to the speakers.
