Sustainable Remediation
… Changes the standard practice of
contaminated site remediation to incorporate
the concepts of sustainability so that
environmental, societal and economic benefits
are maximized while human health and the
environment are protected.
… Mitigation of global warming
emissions and other metrics

Sustainable Remediation Creates Higher Value
•  Minimizes cost and maximizes benefit- value
engineering
•  Identifies opportunities for efficiency and
optimization
•  Informs trade-offs; decreasing one impact
may increase another
•  Identifies Best Management Practices for
design, construction and operation
•  Supports corporate commitments and metrics

Sea Level Rise Adaptation Framework
OSWER Framework for CCA
Implementation Plans
1.  Screen remedies for
vulnerabilities
2.  Conduct sensitivity analysis to
screen out low probability/low
impact vulnerabilities
3.  Evaluate adaptation measures
available and applicable to
address vulnerabilities and
improve resilience
4.  Implement adaptation
measures

Opportunities for Mitigation and Adaptation
• Mitigation
–  SR during remedial selection, design
and construction
–  SR during O&M
•  Baseline emissions assessment
•  Remedial Process Optimization (RPO)
–  Climate Change Resiliency is an
additional SR metric
• Adaptation
–  Tiered screening of facilities for
vulnerability ranking
–  Detailed assessment of a highlyvulnerable facilities

State of the Practice - Battelle 2015
•  Tiered Frameworks are established
employing Best Management Practices
(BMPs) and Footprint Tools
–  ASTM – Greener Cleanups
–  ITRC – Green and Sustainable
Remediation
•  BMPs have been documented by many
•  Footprint Tools are known and regularly
updated
–  SRT 2.3 (November 2012)
–  SiteWise 3.1 added sediment remediation
(May 2015)

– 
AECOM Qualitative Sustainable Remediation Tool
Battelle SiteWiseTM
U.S. Air Force Sustainable Remediation Tool (SRT)
EPA Spreadsheets for Environmental Footprint
Analysis (SEFA)
Advanced
•  Sustainable Return on Investment (sROI)
Simple
Evaluation
–  A quantitative approach to measuring the
triple bottom line (economic,
environmental, and social aspects)
–  Monetizes impacts based on economic
methods
BMPs/Strategies
•  Proprietary Software Programs
–  SimaPro (PRé Consultants)
–  GaBi (PE International)
–  Supplement foot-printing when emission factors are not available

Sustainable Return on Investment – Green Roof
– Infrastructure pays for itself ! Example: Green Roof
•  Economic Benefits
–  Electricity savings
–  Natural gas savings
–  Avoided roof replacement cost
•  Social and Environmental Benefits
–  Avoided water treatment costs (stormwater runoff)
–  Reduced GHG and CAP emissions (SO2, NOx, O3 and PM10)
Summary Life-cycle costs $137,809
