This document is a collection of case studies that highlight the actual and potential outcomes and benefits of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program. The ETV Program was initiated in 1995 to verify the performance of innovative technologies that have the potential to improve human health and the environment. The program operates, in large part, as a public-private partnership through competitive cooperative agreements between EPA and the five nonprofit research institutes listed in Exhibit 1.1-1, although some verifications are performed under contracts. The ETV Program, through its cooperative agreement recipients, develops testing protocols and publishes detailed performance results in the form of verification reports and statements. EPA technical and quality assurance staff review the protocols, test plans, verification reports, and verification statements to ensure that the verification data have been collected, analyzed, and presented in a manner that is consistent with EPA's quality assurance guidelines. By providing credible performance information about new and improved, commercially ready environmental technologies, ETV verification can help vendors sell their technologies and help users to make purchasing decisions. Ultimately, the environment and public health benefit.
