Subject: [CPEO-MEF] CPEO Updates Technology Tree
With funds provided by the Citizen's Monitoring and Technical Assessment Fund and EPA Region 9 CPEO has greatly enhanced and updated the Technology Tree component of its website. Initially developed in 1997, the Tech Tree (http://www.cpeo.org/tree.html) is an interactive tool designed for citizens to gain easy access to technology overviews that provide descriptions, list the development stage and provide data on applicability and limitations and concerns--if known--on these technologies.

The Tech Tree contains overviews for 118 environmental cleanup technologies. Thirty-five of those technologies specifically address Department of Energy contaminants such as metals and radionuclides. By utilizing the search engine the Tech Chart (http://www.cpeo.org/techtree/ttchart.htm) --users are able to match contaminants and media to find specific technologies that address specific cleanup needs.

In the past year CPEO has added 23 new technology overviews and updated all existing information. This tool was designed specifically for public stakeholders; however, we believe that everyone involved in the cleanup of federal facilities will find it useful. Please visit the Tech Tree and let us know what you think. We'd like to know if you find this tool useful and any comments, criticisms, and suggestions would be most helpful.
