The following links can be accessed to review general information, databases, and descriptions of projects relating to bioremediation.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
EPA Remediation And Characterization Innovative Technologies (EPA REACH IT)
The EPA Remediation and Characterization Innovative Technologies (EPA REACH IT) system allows environmental professionals to use the power of the Internet to search, view, download, and print information about innovative remediation and characterization technologies. EPA REACH IT combines information from three established EPA databases:
1. Vendor Information System for Innovative Treatment Technologies (VISITT),
2. Vendor Field Analytical and Characterization Technologies System (Vendor FACTS), and
3. Innovative Treatment Technologies (ITT)
Hazardous Waste Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN)
The Hazardous Waste Clean-up Information (Clu-In) database provides information about innovative treatment technologies to the hazardous waste remediation community. It describes programs, organizations, publications, and other tools for federal and state personnel, consulting engineers, technology developers and vendors, remediation contractors, researchers, community groups, and individual citizens. The site was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Bioremediation in the Field Search System (BFSS), a PC-based software product that provides access to a database of information on waste sites in the United States and Canada where bioremediation is being tested or implemented, can be accessed as this site.
Alternative Treatment Technology Information Center (ATTIC)
The Alternative Treatment Technology Information Center (ATTIC) database, developed by the EPA Office of Research and Development, is a comprehensive computer database that provides up-to-date information on innovative treatment technologies. ATTIC provides access to several independent databases and a mechanism for retrieving full-text documents of key literature.
U.S. Army Environmental Center (USAEC)
The following links provide information on USAEC bioremediation projects.

Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable
Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable (FRTR)
This site describes the cooperative efforts of the Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable (FRTR) to improve the availability of innovative technologies. These multi-agency efforts are aimed at improving technology evaluations, developing technical solutions to common contamination problems, and working with States to overcome permitting barriers to the use of
Remediation Technologies Development Forum
Remediation Technologies Development Forum (RTDF)
The Remediation Technologies Development Forum (RTDF) was established by the U.S. EPA's Technology Innovation Office and Office of Research and Development to foster collaboration between the public and private sector in finding innovative
solutions to mutual hazardous waste problems. The RTDF has grown into a consortium of partners from industry, government, and academia. Partners share the common goal of developing more effective, less costly hazardous waste characterization and treatment technologies.
National Water Research Institute of Environment Canada
Bioremediation Resources on the Internet
This site is maintained by the National Water Research Institute of Environment Canada at the Canada Centre for Inland Waters in Burlington, Ontario. It includes the LinksBase database, which is a collection of World Wide Web documents dealing with bioremediation.
Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER)
Information on HAZWOPER training
HAZWOPER training is required for persons handling or in proximity to hazardous materials. It pertains to the emergency response operations related to releases of, or substantial threats of releases of, hazardous substances.
Links to electronic bioremediation resources, and other related topics
BioLinks is an archive of Internet resources on bioremediation and related topics that are organized by topical categories.
Bioremediation Discussion Group
Bioremediation Discussion Group
The BioGroup includes over 2,300 members worldwide, including environmental consultants, industry representatives, regulators, researchers, educators, students, and others with diverse backgrounds in education and experience.
