"CPEO Plants a Technology Tree on the Web" Are you looking for free information about characterization and remediation technology? Start with the Center for Public Environmental Oversight's (CPEO) "Technology Tree!" http://www.cpeo.org/techtree The goal of this web site is to help public stakeholders participate knowledgeably in the selection of cleanup remedies or other relevant technologies. You can define a problem and get a short list of technologies, innovative and conventional, designed to solve it. Or you can look up a technology, learn about it, and then check to see what other technologies might do the job. The Technology Tree or "Tech Tree" doesn't use the typical "Search Engine" to find its information. The web site's content is governed by the philosophy that 'Quality is better than quantity'. CPEO hired an actual person to go through other cleanup technology web sites and weed out the good, the bad, and the ugly. Eleven months work and 97 remediation technology descriptions later, the web site is a user-friendly, "front-end", decision-making tool for learning about the available types of technologies. The "Tech Tree" doesn't duplicate existing information on other professional web sites. Instead it provides basic info about a technology and additional links for users who want more comprehensive descriptions. The Tech Tree does not endorse or oppose specific technologies, but the descriptions mention limitations and concerns about each technology. The site has 200 glossary terms, which are linked throughout the 97 technology descriptions. Our Resource Page contains web site links, points of contact for different federal agencies, and a directory of independent technical consultants. This is a new approach, with a great deal of original material. We're looking for criticisms, suggestions, and corrections. And if you use the Technology Tree to influence a cleanup decision, we'd like to hear about it. Please feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call (415) 904-7751 for more information and questions. This project is sponsored by the Bay Area Defense Conversion Action Team (BADCAT) through the Bay Area Economic Forum in California.
