The EPA Environmental Technology Verification Program (ETV) has been carried out through cooperative agreements with private testing and evaluation organizations. These verification organizations work with EPA technology experts to create efficient and quality-assured testing procedures that verify the performance of innovative technologies. Similar technologies are grouped into verification areas called centers:
|Advanced Monitoring Systems Center – environmental monitoring for air; water; and soils, surfaces and site characterization|
|Air Pollution Control Technology Center – control of stationary, mobile and indoor air pollution|
|Drinking Water Systems Center – drinking water treatment primarily for use in small communities|
|Greenhouse Gas Technology Center – greenhouse gas monitoring and mitigation|
|Materials Management and Remediation Center – materials management, recycling, reuse and remediation of contaminated land and groundwater.|
|Water Quality Protection Center – protection of groundwater and surface water from contamination|
In addition to the above verification centers, ETV also verified technologies in other areas that have been terminated or transferred to other organizations.
