NEMI: National Environmental Methods Index
Since 2002, NEMI (http://www.nemi.gov/) has helped the scientific community find the environmental methods they need with an easy-to-use, searchable online database of both regulatory and non-regulatory methods.
"Greener" Methods Profiles
A project that aims to define, identify, and promote analytical chemistry methods that use fewer harmful solvents, use safer chemicals, and minimize waste has been initiated by the American Chemical Society's Green Chemistry Institute. Working with the Board GCI is attempting to define metrics and rules and apply these to the methods in NEMI.
Help NEMI Grow
The USGS and the EPA are partnering with private organizations that would like to help NEMI continue to grow.
Through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), potential partners are being identified to provide funding and assistance for the following activities:
