PROMOTING THE UTILIZATION OF SOLID WASTE GLASS-POLYMER COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY IN THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTORS
This report was part of a larger effort to explore how best to transfer technology which had originated in Federal Laboratories to the civilian/commercial sector. In this report, Brookhaven discusses the actions undertaken to transfer its Glass-Polymer Composite sewer pipe technology to several local governments in the Eastern United States. Problems which were encountered and their attempted solutions are described, and recommendations for certain policy actions by the federal government are identified.
