Featured article: Sustainable Remediation
There are a number of approaches that can be used to implement sustainable remediation.
Sustainable remediation can be implemented in a phased approach, where sustainability is looked at only within the boundaries of the specific project phase. SURF provides a framework that advocates thinking holistically about sustainability and integration of sustainability through time; backward to take insights from previous project phases, and forward by thinking about future project outcomes and considering those sustainability impacts in the current project phase.
Another example framework is the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) Greener Cleanup standard, which identifies opportunities to implement best management practices (BMPs) and quantitative assessments (e.g., footprint analysis or life-cycle assessment [LCA]) in different phases of the project life cycle.
