Projects at this location
|Methane Observation Networks with Innovative Technology to Obtain Reductions (MONITOR)
The projects that comprise ARPA-E's Methane Observation Networks with Innovative Technology to Obtain Reductions (MONITOR) program are developing innovative technologies to cost-effectively and accurately locate and measure methane emissions associated with natural gas production
|Biological Technologies Office
DARPA’s biological technologies arm focuses on leveraging advances in engineering and information sciences to drive and reshape biotechnology for technological advantage. BTO is responsible for all neurotechnology, human-machine interface, human performance, infectious disease, and synthetic biology programs within the agency.
|Pollution Prevention (P2)
This program funds grants/cooperative agreements that implement pollution prevention technical assistance services and/or training for businesses and support projects that utilize pollution prevention techniques to reduce and/or eliminate pollution from air, water and/or land.
|Office of Land and Emergency Management (OLEM)
The Office of Land and Emergency Management provides policy, guidance and direction for the Agency's emergency response and waste programs
Opportunities for funding may be found under the following programs within The Catalog of Federal Assistance (CFDA)
|Biomass Research and Development Initiative Competitive Grants Program (BRDI)
The program aims to carry out research on and development and demonstration of:
The goal of the Environmental Engineering program is to support transformative research which applies scientific and engineering principles to avoid or minimize solid, liquid, and gaseous discharges, resulting from human activities on land, inland and coastal waters, and air, while promoting resource and energy conservation and recovery.
The goal of the Environmental Sustainability program is to promote sustainable engineered systems that support human well-being and that are also compatible with sustaining natural (environmental) systems.
|Biological and Environmental Research (BER)
BER has been a critical contributor to climate science research in the U.S..The program supports fundamental research and scientific user facilities to address diverse and critical global challenges. BER research advances our understanding of the roles of Earth's biogeochemical systems in determining the climate so that we can predict climate into the future and plan accordingly for our future energy needs. Some related iCAP projects include
|Sustainable Bioenergy Challenge
The Sustainable Bioenergy challenge area focuses on the societal challenge to secure America's energy future. The challenge hopes to implement regional systems that materially deliver liquid transportation biofuels and reduce national dependence on foreign oil while also producing biopower and biobased products.
|Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy and Water Systems (INFEWS)
The overarching goal of INFEWS is to catalyze well-integrated interdisciplinary and convergent research to transform scientific understanding of the Food Energy Water nexus to improve system function and management, address system stress, increase resilience, and ensure sustainability.
|Anaerobic Digester at Beef and Sheep Study
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is one of the most established technologies for processing waste organics. This study investigated the feasibility of installing an Anaerobic Digester to produce renewable energy from available streams of organic waste (feedstock) within the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus. This study assumed that one on-site digester would be installed in the University’s South Farms.
