Reforms By Type - Innovative Technology

These Round 2 reforms promote the use of innovative technology toachieve faster and less costly cleanups that maintain the same level of protection of human health and the environment.

Reform 2-9a: Risk Sharing -- Implementing Innovative Technology

To share risks associated with implementing innovative technologies, EPA agreed to underwrite the use of certain promising innovative approaches for a limited number of approved projects.

Reform 2-9b: Risk Sharing -- Obstacles to Using Innovative Technology

To encourage contractor use of innovative technology, EPA has reduced associated implementation risks by expanding indemnification coverage to include the prime contractor as well as the innovative technology contractor when indemnification is offered. These parties are thereby protected from third-party negligence claims should the technology not perform as expected.
