Abstract:

This document collects information on potential methods and technologies that could be used to support environmental restoration projects undertaken by NATO Cooperation Partners Partnership for Peace nations in Central and Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union. The information is presented according to the type of pollution that is the object of remediation plans but is limited to pollution problems involving fuels, chlorinated solvents, and heavy metals. Case studies include descriptions of the problems to be solved, the methods used to resolve problems, relative successes, the anticipated cost and actual cost if known, and technologies that are soon to become available. Also included are discussions of technical problems encountered and World Wide Web sites that may have added information. Risk assessment and risk based corrective actions are covered. Appendices include discussions of models and modeling, a guide to a hierarchy of preferred alternatives for each type of problem, and emerging technologies useful for former naval installations. One appendix includes short discussions of alternatives deemed not to be useful and why.
