U.S. EPA Office of Research & Development Product Expo in Region 5
Originally Held October 6, 2004, 11:00 AM - 3:45 PM, EDT (15:00-19:45 GMT)
The U.S. EPA Office of Research and Development Product Expo Series is an effort to showcase specific "ready to use" and "nearly ready to use" science products, and how EPA Regions and States might use them to address environmental issues. Each of these expos will feature ORD products that address priority science topics. On October 6, Region V will host the first Regional exposition at their Chicago EPA office. The Product Expo features four recent ORD products, including: new guidance for choosing ecological risk assessment endpoints; Optimal Well Locator (OWL) software for optimizing monitoring well locations; using Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (QPCR) as a rapid beach closings tool; and, new technologies for Mercury removal from power plant flue gas.
