The Osaka and Hiroshima Prefectural Governments were selected as the verification organizations for FY 2006 ETV Pilot Project in the field of organic wastewater treatment technologies for small-scale establishments.

The ETV Pilot Project was launched by the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) of Japan in FY2003 to objectively verify the performance of advanced environmental technologies.

Specifically, the Project is aimed at:
-dissemination of technologies verified in this project,
-achievement of environmental conservation,
-spurring economic activity, such as local environmental industries, and
-establishment of appropriate ETV methods and systems.

The Osaka and Hiroshima Prefectural Governments responded to the invitation of the Japan Environmental Sanitation Center, the verification management organization, by applying to serve as verification organizations, during the application period between March 3 and 24.

The MOE selected both of these governments as the verification organizations.

The verification organizations will publicly invite technologies to be verified and select which technologies to examine based on experts' opinions. Then, they will develop the test plans, verify the technologies, prepare a report on the results and publicly announce the outcome.
