Battelle is pleased to join VerifiGlobal, an international organization that assists technology companies and solution providers seeking market acceptance of the technologies and solutions they provide.
VerifiGlobal was formed to provide independent, third-party testing and verification services for all types of environmental technologies. VerifiGlobal Alliance members, including Battelle, will provide these services according to internationally accepted standards.
Companies seeking to enter new markets or introduce new environmental technologies can get their technology performance claims verified and join the VerifiGlobal Solutions Network based on the verifications performance by the VerifiGlobal Alliance members.
The vision of VerifiGlobal is to establish and grow an international network of technology users, providers and technical experts with a shared vision to accelerate the market adoption of innovative, environmentally sound technologies, based on the principle of “test once, accept anywhere.”
Battelle provided testing and verification services under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ETV program for 17 years and evaluated more than 160 technologies. The anticipated new International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard for environmental technology verification (ISO 14034), expected to be announced in the fall of 2016, will provide the basis for the work completed by VerifiGlobal Alliance members.
Battelle’s prior experience spans a full range of environmental solutions, including site characterization, treatment, monitoring and other clean technologies. In addition to testing and verification, Battelle also has a long history of environmental technology development and transfer for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), EPA, and other government and commercial organizations.
Battelle is a founding member of VerifiGlobal and holds a seat on the VerifiGlobal board. Amy Dindal, a Project/Program Manager on the Battelle Environmental Services team, currently serves on the board.
