National Risk Management Research Laboratory

Laboratory Information:

National Risk Management Research Laboratory
26 West Martin Luther King Drive
Mail Stop G75
Cincinnati, OH 45268
Technology Transfer Website:
Agency/Department: Environmental Protection Agency
Region: Midwest

FLC Laboratory Representative:

Mr. Roy Haught
Phone: 513 569 7067
Fax: (513) 569-7585

Background/History of the Laboratory:

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) functions as both a scientific and regulatory agency of the United States. Research conducted under the EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) provides the basis for the formulation of environmental policies and programs. ORD's National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL) plays a vital role in the scientific research mission at EPA.

Mission of the Laboratory:

Our mission is to develop ways to prevent and reduce pollution of air, land, and water, and to restore ecosystems. With headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, and divisions in North Carolina, Oklahoma, and New Jersey, our staff of several hundred scientists and engineers shares the mission to solve a wide range of environmental challenges.
