U.S. Air Force Sustainable Remediation

Mar 25 2010

AECOM (USA) has been awarded a follow-on 12 month contract with the United States Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment (AFCEE) to further develop AFCEE’s publically available Sustainable Remediation Tool (SRT™), which AECOM first developed in 2008.

According to Erica Becvar, head of the AFCEE Technology Transfer Outreach Office,” the SRT serves three vital purposes: 1) optimizing existing remediation technology systems, 2) planning for future remediation technologies, and 3) comparing remediation approaches based on sustainability metrics.” Doug Ruppel, AECOM’s SRT project manager, added , “Our continuing efforts with the SRT and development of Green and Sustainable Remediation (GSR) guidance will greatly assist the Air Force with its important sustainability goals and leadership.”

AECOM’s SRT team, including sub-consultants GSI Environmental and CH2M Hill, will update the functionality of the SRT™, train users, and develop an interface between the SRT and AECOM’s proprietary Remedial Action Cost Engineering and Requirements (RACER™) software solution for estimating costs of environmental projects. This will allow RACER users to benefit from the SRT’s sustainability metrics calculations.

Under executive order 13514 issued by President Obama October 19, 2009, U.S. federal agencies must continuously improve the sustainability of their environmental-and energy-related operations. This includes setting a target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2020; increasing energy efficiency, water conservation, and waste reduction; reducing fleet petroleum consumption; supporting sustainable communities; and leveraging purchasing power to promote environmentally responsible products and technologies.
