Last month, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that their Small Business Innovation Research program (SBIR) is offering 25 companies across America $2 million for their support of green technology. The companies chosen have proven a dedication to sustainable energy and environmental support.
The SBIR program is in place to encourage the development of technology that supports the environment. Their goals include sustainable infrastructures, the treatment of drinking water, building green structures, protecting against pollution waste buildup, and greenhouse gas reduction.
The SBIR program honors businesses that are successful at making a difference that can be felt throughout the community. Although green technology and implementation is still relatively new in America, this support from the EPA is likely to keep businesses implementing more green policies.
