Since 1988, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), has supported a research program to encourage the development, demonstration, and evaluation of production techniques and processes that lead to reduced waste generation. This clean technologies research program is part of a six goal program focused, in addition to clean technologies, environmentally clean products, enhancement of recycling and reuse practices, socioeconomic research, anticipatory research to identify pollution prevention implications of new developments, and technology transfer. The paper discusses the challenges involved in taking a pollution prevention approach to produce clean technologies. It reviews selected projects from these programs and outlines future directions these may take to encourage new and cleaner production.
