About Our Committee

Our Committee Members and Friends represent Academia, Transportation Authorities, State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and Transportation Consultants, all with a vested interest in advancing the ideals of the Committee into realized outcomes.

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 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.
