Newly emerging technologies hold the promise of addressing environmental problems more cost-effectively, while encouraging new companies and promoting economic development. In October 2011, EPA adopted a "road map" to chart a path for the EPA to play more broadly in the technology marketplace--helping to define new needs, using its regulatory agenda to encourage new technology solutions, and partnering with all levels of government, the financial community, and technology developers to assist in technology commercialization, both domestically and internationally. Two activities already underway to carry out the strategy will also be discussed. Join Walter Kovalick, former director of Technology Innovation Office in EPA's waste programs, for a wide ranging discussion of the strategy and its direction as the nation tackles the "clean technology" sector. Marianne L. Horinko, president of The Horinko Group and former EPA acting administrator, will moderate and provide opening remarks.
