Funding Available for Environmental Technology Demonstrations

ESTCP is seeking proposals for innovative environmental technology demonstrations as candidates for funding beginning in FY2014. Pre-proposals are due by Thursday, Mar. 14, 2013

The Department of Defense (DoD), through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DoD environmental requirements. The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative environmental technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance. Projects conduct formal demonstrations at DoD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.

ESTCP is seeking proposals for innovative environmental technology demonstrations as candidates for funding beginning in FY2014. This solicitation requests pre-proposals via Calls for Proposals to Federal organizations and via a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Private Sector organizations. Pre-proposals are due by Thursday, Mar. 14, 2013.

Detailed instructions for DoD, Non-DoD Federal, and BAA proposers are available on the ESTCP website.

DoD organizations (Service and Defense Agencies) may submit pre-proposals for demonstrations of innovative environmental technologies in the following topic areas:

§ Environmental Restoration — Technologies for the characterization, risk assessment, remediation, and management of contaminants in soil, sediments, and water.

§ Munitions Response — Technologies for the detection, classification, and remediation of military munitions on U.S. lands and waters.

§ Resource Conservation — Tools, technologies, and methodologies that advance DoD’s management of its natural and cultural resources.

§ Weapons Systems and Platforms — Technologies to reduce, control, or eliminate the sources of wastes and emissions in the manufacturing, maintenance, and use of weapons systems and platforms.

The Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) and Non-DoD Federal Call for Proposals (CFP) are seeking pre-proposals for environmental technologies in the following topic areas only:

§ Management of Contaminated Groundwater

§ In Situ Management of Contaminated Sediments

§ Wastewater Treatment at DoD Facilities

§ Military Munitions Detection, Classification, and Remediation

§ Regionally Based Airfield Natural Resources Management Technologies/ Methodologies to Reduce Bird/Wildlife Air Strike Hazard (BASH) Threats

WEBINAR – JANUARY 29:ESTCP Director Dr. Jeffrey Marqusee will conduct an online seminar ESTCP Funding Opportunities for Environmental Technologies on January 29, 2013, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. Eastern Time. This “How to play” briefing will offer valuable information for those interested in new ESTCP funding opportunities. During the online seminar, participants may ask questions about the funding process, the current ESTCP solicitation, and the proposal submission process. Pre-registration for this webinar is required. Please click here to register.

If you have any difficulties registering, please contact Jonathan Bunger at jbunger@hgl.com or 571-372-6384.
