RBCA Tool Kit for Chemical Releases
Designed to meet the requirements of the ASTM Standard Guide for Risk-Based Corrective Action (E-2081), the RBCA Tool Kit for Chemical Releases, version 2.0, now provides expanded flexibility and additional risk and transport models to allow for even easier application of this essential software tool to develop risk-based soil and groundwater clean-up levels consistent with local regulations or requirements around the world.
Over recent years environmental site managers, regulatory authorities, and consultants around the world have increasingly turned to Risk-Based Corrective Action (RBCA) for the management of contaminated soil and groundwater. RBCA is a practical management approach that focuses explicitly on the protection of human health and the environment while promoting energy and cost-efficient remedies to allow limited resources to be targeted to the most hazardous sites. A keystone of the RBCA framework is the development of site-specific environmental cleanup criteria following a tiered risk evaluation approach. This approach is broadly applicable to chemical release sites located in different geographical settings and managed under various regulatory authorities.
The RBCA Tool Kit for Chemical Releases is a comprehensive modeling and risk characterization software package designed to meet the requirements of the ASTM Standard Guide for Risk-Based Corrective Action (E-2081) for Tier 1 and Tier 2 RBCA evaluations for chemical release sites in addition to traditional risk assessment calculations. The software combines contaminant transport models and risk assessment tools to calculate baseline risk levels and derive risk-based cleanup standards for a full array of soil, groundwater, surface water, and air exposure pathways. The ease-of-use features and streamlined graphical interface features of this software make it an essential tool for handling RBCA and generic risk assessment calculations for both simple and sophisticated problems.
