Funding is available to help start-ups and projects get verified on their environmental performance
The Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is a service provided by the European Commission with the aim to help technology providers proposing innovative, green technologies verify their solutions and provide a quality stamp. The ETV process takes the technology through a third-party validation, which assesses the performance of the technology based on independent and credible information using international standards. The end product is an ETV Statement of Verification published on the ETV website and used in business-to-business relations. This enables technology owners to document the reliability of their claims and differentiate them from competitors, and it helps technology purchasers identify innovations that suit their needs.
The EIT Circular Economy Community launches a call to support companies in obtaining the ETV. The call is open until 31.05.2022 (23:59 CEST). The call guidelines and application form can be downloaded below.
A webinar defining the main aspects of the call and ETV requirements will be organised on April 29 from 11.00 AM to 12.00 PM CET. The webinar will include a presentation of the EIT Circular Economy Community and call description, a detailed presentation of ETV main requirements and the ETV Secretariat followed by the opportunity to ask questions. If you would like to attend, please register here.
ETV is implemented by accredited Verification Bodies in three technology areas:
- Water treatment and monitoring (e.g., monitoring water quality, treatment of drinking water and wastewater)
- Materials, waste and resources (e.g., separation and sorting of solid waste, recycling of materials, end-of-life products and chemicals, biomass-based products)
- Energy (e.g., renewable energy, energy generated from waste, energy efficiency)
The call is open to any partner and start-up participating EIT Circular Economy Community (EIT RawMaterials, EIT Climate KIC, EIT Food, EIT Manufacturing and EIT UrbanMobility) with a technology included in any of the previously defined areas that have been supported in any ongoing or finished demonstration project.
