Protection Agency, B. E. (n.d.). Epa's Environmental Technology Verification Program. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Throughout its history, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has evaluated technologies to determine their effectiveness in monitoring, preventing, controlling, and cleaning up pollution. Since the early 1990s, however, numerous government and private groups have determined that the lack of an organized and ongoing program to produce independent, credible performance data is a major impediment to the development and use of innovative environmental technology. Such data are needed by technology buyers and permitters, both in the United States and abroad, to make informed technology decisions. To overcome this impediment, EPA established a program to accelerate the implementation of environmental technology through objective verifi cation and reporting of technology performance. In October 1995, the Environmental Technology Verifi cation (ETV) Program was established by EPA. The ETV Program develops testing protocols and verifi es the performance of innovative technologies that have the potential to improve protection of human health and the environment. Recently, ETV began verifi cation of monitoring and treatment technologies relevant for homeland security.
