The ETV Program is a program to test usable “advanced environmental technologies” for evaluation purposes.  Technological effects are “verified” in the form of objective data.

Target technology fields include "Global warming mitigation technology","Human waste treatment technology in natural areas", "Organic wastewater treatment technology", "Water environment improvement technology forlakes and enclosed coastal seas", "VOC measurement technology" and "Heat-island mitigation technology".

Target Technology Fields Fields Currently Targeted Small hydropower generation technology field Global warming mitigation technology field (lighting energy reduction technologies) Human waste treatment in natural areas: human waste treatment technology field Organic wastewater treatment technology field Water environment improvement technologies in enclosed coastal seas field Water purification technologies for lakes and reservoirs field Heat-island mitigation technology field (technologies for reducing air conditioning loads by using building envelope systems) Heat-island mitigation technology field (heat pump air-conditioning systems using ground source heat, wastewater heat, etc.) Simplified VOC, etc. measurement technology field

The ETV Program helps to facilitate the use of excellent environmental technologies.

The ETV Program solves the marketing problem of advanced environmental technologies, that are ready for commercial application and are believed to be useful, but nevertheless are not yet being widely used since as end-users such as local governments, private enterprises and consumers, refrain from introducing them simply because of the absence of an objective assessment of their environmental conservation effects, etc.

  • Verification results so far obtainedSome 500 technologies have been verified so far. - Number of Technologies Verified - Verification Test Reports - Outline of Verification
  • Use of the logoThe MoE authorizes the use of the ETV Program logo for a technology which has been verified by the ETV Program
List of the Current Subject Fields for Verification
The subject technology fields for verification by the MoE are selected based on the need for such verification among developers and users and the relevant examination results of knowledgeable persons.
