Technology Innovation

Technology isn’t limited to Silicon Valley. Research in our laboratories leads to new technologies that are used by EPA's regional offices, states, tribes, and local communities.

Our scientists and researchers design and implement new technologies that improve environmental protection.

Water Technology Innovation
The EPA aims to be a catalyst to promote and support technology innovation to restore, protect and ensure the sustainability of our water resources.

Cincinnati Water Technology Cluster
Innovation in the water technology sector happens through collaboration among internal and external partners in the Cincinnati region.

Next-Generation Air Monitoring
Low-cost, portable air sensors have the potential to revolutionize air quality monitoring. 

Water Monitoring and Remote Sensing
EPA is studying technologies that will measure nutrient pollution in the air and water using satellites, portable and ground remote sensors, and measurement and model data.

National Stormwater Calculator 
The desktop application estimates annual rainwater amounts and frequency of runoff from a specific site anywhere in the U.S. to inform green infrastructure decisions.

Environmental Technology Innovation Clusters
EPA supports the efforts of regional industry clusters focused on the development of new environmental technologies.

Renewable Energy on Contaminated Land
EPA identifies the renewable energy potential of current and formerly contaminated lands, landfills, and mine sites when it is aligned with the community’s vision for the site.

EPA Technology Transfer 
Cooperative research and development partnerships can transfer federal technologies into the marketplace.

Technology Innovation Roadmap
The roadmap examines a broad range of approaches to solving the country’s most pressing current environmental problems and preventing future ones.
