Purpose of this program:

The Office of Environmental Cleanup and Acceleration's Technology Development and Deployment program provides technical solutions and alternative technologies to assist with the accelerated cleanup of the DOE complex. The Office of Environmental Cleanup and Acceleration will work to develop new or improved technology systems to reduce risks to the environment, workers, and to the public, reduce overall cleanup costs, and furnish cleanup methods that did not previously exist in order to satisfy applicable Federal, State, local laws, and regulations. Achieving the EM strategic objective of safety and expeditiously managing waste; cleanup of facilities and the environment; stabilizing and storing nuclear materials and spent nuclear fuel; and completing cleanup at as many sites as possible by the end of 2006, requires targeted investments in science and technology. To focus technology development on the most pressing problems, four major remediation and waste management areas have been identified to date within the DOE complex: (1) Transuranic and mixed waste; (2) radioactive tank waste; (3) subsurface contaminants; and (4) decontamination and decommissioning (D&D).
