Risk Management Research
State-of-the-Science Technology Assessments
EPA Risk Management Technology Assessments provide state-of-the-science knowledge on technologies that address priority environmental problems in air and energy, water, and solid/hazardous waste and remediation. The assessments summarize what is known about the technology category across the research, development, and demonstration continuum and identify gaps in knowledge. Results of EPA technology assessments are published in fact sheets, summaries, and reports, and include information on multimedia impacts, sustainability criteria, and life-cycle analysis. By conducting these assessments, EPA and its partners can identify how technology can improve the future of environmental protection.
