Recycling Technology Validation Projects

Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.

The Clean Washington Center (CWC), with funding from EPA, the National Institute for Standards and Technology’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership, and the State of Washington Exit EPA have managed and documented over 70 projects validating recycling technologies or recycled-content products. Initially, the CWC was only able to provide funding to Washington state businesses, manufacturers and service providers, and to Washington state government agencies. In 1998, the funding expanded to cover projects nationwide.

The validation projects vary in scope and cover a range of recyclable commodities, including:

EPA’s Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program
Verifies commercial-ready, private sector technologies through pilot programs, one of which involves technologies in pollution prevention, recycling, and waste treatment. Preference is given to technologies in the electronics, metal plating and finishing, petroleum refining, iron and steel manufacturing, and printing industries.
