From the Paper:

"Similar to NYSERDA, numerous other organizations are striving to develop more environmentally friendly products. The aim of these endeavors is the obvious desire to reduce pollution and improve the natural condition of the Earth. Despite the fact that the focus on this industry part is rather new, competition is growing. From this standpoint, managers face the challenge of any traditional product in terms of product quality and marketing to attract buyers. Another issue facing the manager is the necessity to pollute as little as possible in the development process. For instance, a company which produces UV water treatment technology with the intent of cleaning waters, but in developing this product, uses highly polluting compounds or processes, it is likely for the water treatment technology to receive negative reviews and not come to the initially expected outcome. In terms of the characteristics which have to be met by new environmental products, these are numerous and vary from one product to the other. However, through extrapolation, one can see that the price of the technology is important, alongside with its actual benefits or the reputation of the creator. "
