ALEXANDRIA, VA, January 8, 2015 —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 FY2016.  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 MARCH 12, 2015.

Detailed instructions are on the ESTCP website: ESTCP-Solicitations/Environmental-Technologies-Solicitation.

DoD organizations (Service and Defense Agencies) may submit pre-proposals for demonstrations of innovative environmental technologies in the following topic areas:
  • Environmental Restoration - Technologies to address the reduction of the Department's current and future liabilities through cost-effective management and remediation of contaminants in soil, sediments, and water, as well as the treatment of wastewater on fixed installations.
  • Munitions Response in Underwater Environments — Technologies to address the reduction of the Department’s current liabilities due to unexploded ordnance and discarded military munitions at underwater sites.
  • Resource Conservation — Technologies to support the sustainability of installations and training and testing areas.
  • 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 Call for Proposals (CFP) from Federal Organizations Outside DoD are seeking pre-proposals for environmental technologies in the following topic areas:
  • Management of Contaminated Groundwater
  • Detection, Classification, and Remediation of Military Munitions in Underwater Environments
