Prevention Class  -  Research that supports the development of practices and technologies designed to predict, reduce, or eliminate the likelihood of discharges, or minimize the volume of oil discharges into the environment.

Using the OPRTP framework as a guide, member organizations of the Interagency Committee managed and funded a number of new and on-going research projects.  Catalogued below are Prevention Class research projects under taken by the member agencies of the Interagency Committee during Fiscal Years 2016 - 2017.  Please note that in many instances, research is being conducted by other entities such as federal agencies not currently represented on the Interagency Committee, or by state, local, academic and industry researchers which are not captured below.  Interagency Committee members closely monitor these efforts, and coordinate with these entities.
