About

The Environmental Response Training Program is directed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Environmental Response Team under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) to develop and present various technical and health and safety courses. The program is designed to train personnel from federal, state, tribal, and local government agencies in hazardous waste site investigation/ remediation practices and procedures, as well as emergency response to hazardous chemical releases.

Environmental Remediation Technologies – Chemical Reactions And Separations

This module is part of a series of Environmental Remediation Technologies training modules designed to provide participants with an overview of the treatment technologies most frequently used for cleanup of contaminated media. The emphasis of these modules is on the process description, applicability, and limitations of specific categories of treatment technologies.

This module is intended for new On-Scene Coordinators, Remedial Project Managers, Waste Site Managers, and other environmental personnel interested in remediation.

The Chemical Reactions and Separations module first discusses the working mechanisms, advantages and disadvantages of ex-situ reaction systems:

- neutralization

- chemical precipitation

- reduction, and

- two types of oxidation systems.

This module also discusses the working mechanisms, advantages and disadvantages of ex-situ separation systems:

- plate-and-frame filtration

- microfiltration

- reverse osmosis, and

- ion exchange.

Note:  Another closely related Environmental Remediation Technologies module is the Basic Water Treatment module.  It introduces concepts and covers some applicable basic water treatment technologies that are not repeated in the Chemical Reactions and Separations module.  Though not required, participants may find it benefical to complete the Basic Water Treatment module before viewing the Chemical Reactions and Separations module.

Environmental Remediation Technologies - Thermal Treatment

This module is part of a series of Environmental Remediation Technologies modules designed to provide participants with an overview of the treatment technologies most frequently used for cleanup of contaminated media.  The emphasis of these modules is on process descriptions, applicability, and limitations of specific categories of treatment technologies. 

This training is intended for new On‑Scene Coordinators, Remedial Project Managers, Waste Site Managers, and other environmental professionals considering the use of thermal treatment options.

This module accomplishes the following objectives:

-       Identifies different types of in-situ and ex-situ thermal treatment systems

-       Lists the general advantages and limitations of ex-situ thermal treatment systems

-       Describes the components, operation, advantages and limitations of two ex-situ thermal treatment systems

-       Explains off-gas thermal treatment components

ERT Presents Development of Ecological Preliminary Remediation Goals Webinar

This seminar provides an overview of Ecological Preliminary Remediation Goals (PRGs) for common terrestrial and aquatic receptors. The seminar begins with a general discussion and background information about ecological PRGs. Topics included in the presentation include description of performance measures, criteria with which PRGs must comply, how PRGs are derived and used, and how background is incorporated into the PRG process. In addition, there will be a brief discussion pertaining to how risk management in considered in the PRG process.
