Pitch to Pilot
DWPR Funding Opportunity
Bridging Reclamation's Clean Water Technologies for Today and Tomorrow
Applications due by June 17, 2020
The Bureau of Reclamation is making up to $1 million available through its Desalination and Water Purification Research Program.
This funding opportunity is seeking innovative and cost-effective new water treatment technologies. This unique, two-phase funding opportunity will have selected applicants pitch their new technology to technical experts this fall. "There is a need to reduce the cost, energy requirements and environmental impacts in treating unusable water," said Program Administrator Yuliana Porras-Mendoza. "This innovative program allows technical experts to help select the strongest applicants."
Reclamation is looking for new technologies or processes to:
• Treat brackish groundwater in a less energy-intensive way than currently available.
• Reduce cost, energy, and/or environmental impacts of reverse osmosis/nanofiltration concentrate.
• Improve the efficiency of the water treatment process–either by improvements to pre-treatment, post-treatment, monitoring, sensors, or other innovative process or technology.
• Reduce costs, energy usage, and/or environmental impacts of seawater desalination, including intakes and/or outfalls.
• Reduce costs, energy requirements, and/or environmental impacts of treating impaired and unusable water to standards necessary for an identified beneficial use.
Applications are due by June 17, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. MDT. If your application is selected, you will be invited to participate in the "pitch" event on September 24 - 25, 2020.News Release
