Department of Energy Announces $20 Million to Develop Water Reuse Technology

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) announced the availability of $20 million in funding as part of the Water Security Grand Challenge. The funding aims to “develop technology innovations to strengthen America’s water infrastructure and enable advanced water resource recovery systems that have the potential to be net energy positive.” The Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) covers two topic areas:

  • Advance the development of transformative technologies beyond early-stage R&D to become pilot ready; and
  • Test currently developed, pilot-ready technologies through design, build, and operation in industrially relevant conditions to enable commercialization.

Concept papers are due by August 1, 2020 and the DOE anticipates selecting 10 awards. Read More.
