The EPA's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) initiated a series of innovative projects to test new ideas and strategies for environmental and public health protection. An amount of money is set aside to fund creative approaches to waste minimization, energy recovery, recycling, land revitalization, and homeland security that may be replicated across various sectors, industries, communities, and regions. We hope these projects will pave the way for programmatic and policy recommendations by demonstrating the environmental and economic benefits of creative, innovative approaches to the difficult environmental challenges we face today.
