Subject: [CPEO-MEF] RESEARCH: Funding Available For Environmental Technology Demonstration and Validation

ARLINGTON, VA, January 8, 2009 - The Department of Defense (DoD), through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), supports the demonstration and validation of environmental technologies that address priority DoD environmental requirements. The goal of ESTCP is to transition mature environmental science and technology projects through the demonstration and validation phase, thereby enabling promising technologies to receive regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance and to be fielded and commercialized more effectively and more rapidly.

ESTCP is seeking innovative environmental technology demonstrations as candidates for funding beginning in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010. This solicitation requests pre-proposals via Calls for Proposals to DoD organizations and Federal (Non-DoD) organizations, and via a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Private Sector organizations. PRE-PROPOSALS ARE DUE BY THURSDAY, MARCH 5, 2009.

Detailed instructions for DoD, Non-DoD Federal, and BAA proposers are available on the ESTCP web site: http://www.estcp.org/opportunities.

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

* Environmental Restoration - proposals in this topic area should address the reduction of the Department's current liabilities and prevention of future liabilities through the demonstration of technologies or tools for the cost-effective management and remediation of chemical contaminants in soil, sediments, and ground and surface water. Areas of interest include: characterization and monitoring, treatment, containment, optimization, exposure and bioavailability, and risk assessment.

* Munitions Management - proposals in this topic area should address the reduction of the Department's current liabilities under the Military Munitions Response Program due to unexploded ordnance (UXO) and discarded military munitions or the sustainability of the current testing and training ranges through active range clearance and reducing the generation of UXO. Areas of high priority include: detection and discrimination and underwater site characterization.

* Sustainable Infrastructure - proposals in this topic area should support the sustainability of training and testing areas, as well as the installation infrastructure that supports these areas and the infrastructure associated with deployed forces. Areas of interest include: natural resources (e.g., ecosystem-based management; land management and watershed protection; and maritime sustainability), facilities and energy (e.g., noise; facility waste; air and water quality; and energy), and cultural resources.

* Weapons Systems and Platforms - proposals in this area should address the current and future environmental liabilities associated with DoD weapons systems and platforms. This includes the design, construction, maintenance, repair, and operations of weapons systems and platforms. Areas of interest include: manufacturing and maintenance (e.g., alternative materials; alternative processes; and monitoring and control of emissions), green energetics (e.g., green materials; alternative manufacturing processes; and monitoring and control of emissions), emissions (e.g., diesel and turbine engines; weapons and munitions; and ships), and greenhouse gases (e.g., weapons systems operations).

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:

* Remediation of Contaminated Groundwater

* In Situ Management of Contaminated Sediments

* Characterization, Control, and Treatment of Range Contamination

* Military Munitions Detection, Discrimination, and Remediation

* Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy for DoD Installations

JOIN US! Through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Technology Innovation Program, ESTCP Director Dr. Jeffrey Marqusee will conduct an online seminar ESTCP Funding Opportunities on January 15, 2009, 2:00-4:00 PM EST. This "how to play" briefing will offer valuable information for those who are interested in new funding opportunities within ESTCP. During the online seminar, participants may ask general questions about the funding process, submitting proposals, and the current FY 2010 ESTCP solicitation.
