(5/8/08) An EPA independent advisory committee, National Advisory Council for Environmental Policy and Technology (NACEPT), today released a new report identifying actions that EPA and the investment community can take and partnerships they can create to achieve the goal of greater long-term private sector investment in the commercialization of environmental technologies.

The report,
EPA and the Venture Capital Community: Building Bridges to Commercialize Technology, April 2008, is the third in a series of reports by the NACEPT Environmental Technology Subcommittee. The Subcommittee's other two earlier reports on environmental technology are: EPA Technology Programs: Engaging the Marketplace, and EPA Technology Programs and Intra-Agency Coordination.

NACEPT, a balanced panel of representatives from academia, business and industry, nongovernmental organizations, and state, local and tribal governments, advises the EPA Administrator on a broad range of environmental policy, technology and management issues.
