 It's such a good idea, that too many people may be trying to do it.
A draft report, "Establishing Environmental Technology Development
Centers at Closing California Military Bases," authored for Cal/EPA by
Peter Wood and Pierre Thiry, concludes:

"Environmental technology development centers have been proposed at
several closing California bases undergoing environmental cleanup. The
economic benefit that a technology development center would provide to
communities impacted by base closures makes this concept attractive and
increasingly popular. However, the number of technology development
centers currently proposed is sufficient to warrant concern regarding the
viability and practicality of numerous centers located throughout the state. A
large number of technology development centers with overlapping
geographical and/or market interests may lead to competition with one
another for both funding and business. In addition, it appears that reuse
entities proposing technology development centers at closing bases are often
unaware of existing efforts to support technology development elsewhere in

 As a resource for reuse planners, the report lists the twelve
members of the California Environmental Business Incubator Consortium
(CEBIC) as well as several other ET initiatives within the state:
