Nordic Environmental Technology Verification

Environmental Technology Verification


The European Union (EU) is planning to establish the framework for a European Environmental Technology Verification system (ETV). The objective of Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is to accelerate market acceptance of innovative technologies by providing users with information about their performance, thereby substantially reducing uncertainty for purchasers and permitters.

NOWATECH description

NOWATECH will support the Nordic technology providers and users, as well as test center operators by establishing Nordic test centers and by informing on the market prospects of Nordic environmental innovations. The overall objective of the project is to support the Nordic environmental technology industry in both the home market and the global market by providing access to accepted and comparable verification data for their technologies.
