Despite this, little is known about how residents perceive remediation technology applications. In this study a choice experiment is designed to explore ways of understanding and measuring residents' preferences for different remediation technologies approaches using a sample of 944 residents in New South Wales, Australia. Analysis reveals that the residents' acceptability of remediation technologies can be explained by both the efficacy of the technology in improving the environmental quality of the community, and the reputational value of the technology. In particular it is found that residents prefer Monitor Natural Attenuation and Bioremediation to other remediation technologies. In particular they are willing to pay an increase in yearly taxes of $44.60 and $41.15 respectively for implementing such technologies instead of alternative remediation technologies like Chemical remediation.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/51124||ISSN:||0048-9697||DOI:||10.1016/j.scitotenv.2017.10.125||Source:||Science of the Total Environment [ISSN 0048-9697], v. 621, p. 1012-1022, (Abril 2018)|
