Can you recommend environmentally safe technologies?

In general, EPA does not endorse any specific technology or product. However, we are aware of a few EPA programs that provide information on remediation and characterization innovative technologies. Information on innovative new technologies for addressing specific chemicals at contaminated sites is available through EPA REACH IT. EPA REACH IT is a new system sponsored by EPA's Technology Innovation Office (TIO) that provides information about innovative remediation and characterization technologies.
