Description:

The paper discusses greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation and monitoring technology performance activities of the GHG Technology Verification Center. The Center is a public/private partnership between Southern Research Institute and the U.S. EPA's Office of Research and Development. It provides independent third-party testing of the performance of GHG mitigation and monitoring technologies and was established in response to the belief that many viable environmental technologies are not being utilized for the lack of credible third-party performance testing and reporting. The Center is part of EPA's Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program, which has established 12 verification centers to evaluate a wide range of technologies in various environmental media and technology areas. The Center has published the results of its first verification: use of a phosphoric acid fuel cell to produce electricity from landfill gas. It has also initiated three new field verifications, two on technologies that reduce methane emissions from natural gas transmission compressors, and one on a new microturbine electricity production technology.
