ABSTRACT- Advanced environmental technologies, even though they are commercial-ready and seem to be useful, have not necessarily been pervasive widely since the users such as local governments, companies and citizens, cannot obtain those technologies because of the lack in objective assessments, concerning the performance in environmental conservation. Ministry of the Environment (MOE) of Japan, therefore, launched the Pilot Project of the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) in 2003 as a trial implementation of ETV, to verify objectively the performance of the advanced environmental technologies by third parties. As one of the technology fields to be verified in 2004 & 2005, the simplified analyzing technologies for monitoring was specified for this Pilot Project are those that analyze the chemicals in the environment more simply than the official method. The technologies are to be applied with antigen and antibody reaction, for instance, enzyme immunoassay, fluorescence immunoassay, and so on, and to target the chemicals of PRTR system and endocrine disrupting substances (or suspected endocrine disrupting substances). PRTR is a method for accurately assessing, aggregating, and disseminating data on the sources from where diverse hazardous chemicals are released, amounts released to the environment, and amounts transferred off-site from industrial establishments via waste products. Detailed information will be presented.
