This Funding Opportunity Announcement’s (FOA) objective is to invite private industry, universities, water utilities, and other research sponsors to submit proposals to cost share laboratory scale and pilot scale projects that address DWPR program goals and objectives.
Funding Group I:
scale projects are typically bench scale studies involving small flow rates (less than 2 gallons per minute).
They are used to determine the viability of a novel process, new materials, or process modifications.
Research at this stage often involves a high degree of risk and uncertainty.
Funding Group II:
Pilot scale projects test a novel process at a sufficiently large scale to determine the technical, practical, and economic viability of the process and are generally preceded by laboratory studies (funded previously by DWPR or others) that demonstrate that the technology works.
