Fairfax, Virginia, November 13, 2006 -
ICF International (Nasdaq: ICFI) announced today it was awarded a five-year, US$16.5 million contract with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Solid Waste (OSW) to provide technical, outreach, and voluntary program support regarding hazardous, industrial, municipal, and special wastes. Efforts under this new contract will serve to protect human health and the environment and conserve natural resources and energy by managing materials more efficiently and reducing risks from waste.
"Winning this contract not only affirms our leadership position supporting EPA’s hazardous waste program since its inception, but creates a major new growth opportunity in municipal and industrial solid waste programs," says Gary Light, senior vice president at ICF and expert in environmental consulting. "The ICF team looks forward to supporting EPA with fresh and creative solutions for voluntary and regulatory programs, built on our extensive institutional knowledge and experience in materials management nationwide."
ICF’s role will be separated into three parts. Part I will focus on municipal, industrial nonhazardous, and special waste program support, including collecting data and conducting studies and surveys; conducting technical research and analyses; providing support for EPA’s development of guidance, regulations, and standards; and providing waste management program implementation support. Part II will address industrial solid and hazardous waste characterization support, including human health and ecological health analysis; engineering analysis, data collection, and evaluation; waste sampling and laboratory analysis support; regulatory impact analysis; and other technical support. Part III will comprise support for outreach, public involvement, educational, and motivational programs and campaigns, as well as voluntary programs under the framework of the Resource Conservation Challenge and related efforts.
