 Technology Innovation Program (TIP)

Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.


This program provides information about characterization and treatment technologies for hazardous waste remediation. It offers technology selection tools and describes programs, organizations, and publications for federal and state personnel, consulting engineers, technology developers and vendors, remediation contractors, researchers, community groups, and individual citizens.

The main goal of TIP is to assemble and disseminate information about treatment technologies through partnerships and initiatives such as the Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable, the State Coalition of Dry Cleaners, and the Remediation Technologies Development Forum, all of which promote commercialization and utilization of remediation technologies. Through the initiative Measurement and Monitoring Technologies for the 21st Century, EPA supports field projects for first-time deployment of commercial-ready measurement techniques for contaminants in soil and ground water. Funding for these demonstrations is about $270,000 per year. TIP also promotes numerous databases and provides support for vendors and developers.
