Committee Scope

TRB Committee ADC60 shares the latest knowledge, expertise, and experience in development and integration of proactive environmental management systems and sustainability concepts into transportation programs in the industry's evolution from a solid and hazardous waste remediation and management approach to a resource efficiency approach. The committee focuses on systems-based solutions and research associated with resource efficiency-and contamination-related technical areas such as toxic and hazardous materials tracking, pollution prevention, product substitution and green designs, recycling and reuse of materials, advances in environmental site assessment technologies and methodologies, and brown fields programs.

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) is a division of the National Research Council, which serves as an independent adviser to the federal government and others on scientific and technical questions of national importance. The National Research Council is jointly administered by the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The mission of the Transportation Research Board - one of six major divisions of the National Research Council - is to promote innovation and progress in transportation through research. In an objective and interdisciplinary setting, the Board facilitates the sharing of information on transportation practice and policy by researchers and practitioners; stimulates research and offers research management services that promote technical excellence; provides expert advice on transportation policy and programs; and disseminates research results broadly and encourages their implementation.
