Agriculture-Based Remediation Program Overview
The purpose of the Agriculture-Based Remediation Proram (ABRP) is to address environmentally impacted sites and to demonstrate agriculture-based remediation technologies to restore contaminated military and civilian sites, especially those located in fragile Pacific Island ecosystems. Agriculture-based bioremediation projects are an important part of a transition effort underway throughout the State of Hawaii to protect and preserve vital agribusiness infrastructure, through the demonstration of ABRP projects with applications of dual-use to military and civilian interests. The step to dual-use military and civilian agriculture-based technology, services, and amendments is a natural one, which can provide exceptional economic opportunities throughout the world while contributing to a national policy of environmental security through the protection of environmental and natural resources.
