The recent emphasis on developing information on achieving pollution prevention has resulted in increased research activity by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the area of clean product development. Currently the EPA's Pollution Prevention Research Branch (PPRB) has six funded research projects under the Clean Products Research Program. These projects include (1) compilation of background information, (2) profiling case studies of industries implementing changes, (3) identification of safe substitutes for toxic products, (4) life-cycle analysis methodology development, (5) development of guidance for industry to use in self-evaluations of product and process design, and (6) development of a method for measuring pollution prevention. A brief description with the status of each project is included in the paper. The paper should be of interest to other researchers, industry and consumers who want to follow the advances made by EPA in the area of clean product and life-cycle analysis research.
