Enviornmental Technology Council Action Teams

Out of the Lab and Into Your Hands

One way that EPA scientists tackle environmental challenges is through innovative technology. Since 2003, EPA’s Environmental Technology Council has created Action Teams that bring together people committed to working collaboratively, finding technology solutions, and cutting through red tape to help make the planet cleaner and healthier.

Explore the Work of These Action Teams:

Leak Detection Using Remote Sensing
Lead Paint Detection in Homes
Sustainable Use of Contaminated Sediment

About the Science Notebook

To see the world through the eyes of
a scientist, just open his or her
notebook — a place to record drawings,
data, questions and insights.
Similarly, EPA's Science Notebook
offers a window into science at
EPA, through stories, interviews,
videos, podcasts and more.

Passions and Partnerships
