Title: SUPPORTING ANAEROBIC DIGESTION IN COMMUNITIES; EPA-OLEM-ORCR-20-02
Proposal Type: Full Proposal
Deadline: July 14, 2020
Funding Range: $50,000 – $300,000
Topic: Accelerate the development of new or enhance/increase existing anaerobic digestion capacity and infrastructure in the United States. Anaerobic digestion (AD) is the natural process in which microorganisms break down organic (plant and animal) materials. Food waste diverted from landfills and incinerators can be managed at AD facilities. The AD process generates renewable energy (biogas) and a product that can improve soil health (digestate).
