The Environmental Technology Action Plan (ETAP) aims at promoting environmentally sound technologies (EsT).
One of the priority action of ETAP is the setting up of an European EsT verification system.

A performance verification system will help innovative eco-technologies and innovative small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in gaining access to the market.

TESNET is one of the European projects selected to " test the testing system ".
It is funded by the European Union within the 6th Research Framework Programme.

" An innovative Environmentally sound Technology is a technology which explicitly claims for higher environmental performance compared with existing technology. A verification system will help in proving that the claimed performance is reliable. "
