The Hazardous Waste Clean-up Information (CLU-IN) World Wide Web Site and Electronic
Bulletin Board System (BBS) provide information about innovative treatment technologies to
the hazardous waste remediation community. Both the web site and BBS offer a variety of
information for federal and state personnel, consulting engineers, technology developers and
vendors, remediation contractors, researchers, community groups, and individual citizens.
CLU-IN World Wide Web Site
• Read about the operation, development, and
  commercialization of innovative site character-
  ization and  remediation technologies and pro-
  grams such as interagency consortia and public-
  private partnerships designed to facilitate their use.
• Download recent documents and databases
  designed to aid those responsible for hazardous
  waste site remediation.
• Link to Internet sources of information on
  environmental restoration and  technology

Types  of Information on
Some of the information available on the CLU-IN
system is summarized below.

•  TechDirect. An information service that highlights
   new publications and events of interest to site
   remediation and site assessment professionals.
   Approximately once a month, the service, via e-
   mail, distributes a message describing the
   availability of publications and events.

•  Technology Innovation News Survey—Biweekly
   Update. A summary of news items related to
   research, commercialization, and applications of
   hazardous waste remediation and site
   characterization technologies!

•  Tech Trends. A newsletter providing descriptions
   and performance data for innovative cleanup
   technologies that have been applied in the field.
•  Ground Water Currents. A newsletter of
   information on the development and
   demonstration of innovative ground-water
   remediation techniques. Includes reports on
   technologies, new regulations that impact
   ground-water remediation, discussions of issues
   such as DNAPLs, and information on conferences
   and publications.

•  Bioremediation in the Field. An information
   update on applying bioremediation to site
   cleanup. Descriptions of treatability studies
   underway; bioremediation projects at CERCLA,
   RCRA, UST, and TSCA sites; and technical support
   and publications offered by EPA.

•  Underground Tank Technology Update. A
   newsletter funded by EPA and published by the
   University of Wisconsin-Madison providing
   information about the cleanup of ground water
  and soil contaminated by leaking underground
  storage tanks.

• Innovative Treatment Technologies (ITT) Annual
  Status Report. A report on applications of
  innovative treatment technologies for remedial
  and removal actions. The companion ITT
  Database provides additional detailed site-specific

• Full text documents on technologies such as
  bioremediation, soil vapor extraction, surfactant
  and cosolvent flushing, fracturing, treatment
  walls, thermal enhancement technologies,
  electrokinetics, and other ground-water and
  physical/chemical treatment technologies.
