This handbook guides the user to hundreds of technologies, practices, partnership opportunities, and funding resources. Presented in non-technical language, it covers hundreds of publicly available resources for pollution prevention, control, remediation, and assessment.

Environmental Technology Resources Handbook will help you:

  • REDUCE-time, effort, and money to search for innovative technologies
  • LOCATE-federal dollars to support development of innovative technologies
  • ANTICIPATE-environmental compliance problems by early adoption of technology
  • UNDERSTAND-the process of forming partnerships to develop or market your "green" products or solutions
  • PARTICIPATE-in verifying technologies under development.

    The Handbook is a highly cost-effective tool for environmental policymakers, corporate EHS personnel, engineers, consultants, governmental program managers, technology vendors, international development assistance professionals, and academics teaching environmental courses.

    Environmental Technology Resources Handbook indexes information by key words, 12 technology and environmental media areas, 15 types of resources offered, and major industry and government sectors.

    "Finding the right environmental technology has often involved a blind crawl around the Internet, with chance rather than planning determining the outcome. Thanks to Dan Gottlieb, those days are over. This book provides a broad and comprehensive survey of resources, from government agencies to Internet sites, that should help every environmental professional, regardless of where they are working, do their job better and more efficiently."
    -Brad Allenby, VP, AT&T Environment, Health & Safety

    "The work's strongest element is its gather many important, carefully studied Internet resources in one useful source. Recommended."
