The Department of Defense (DoD) Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) is seeking to fund projects aimed at the demonstration and validation of environmentally sustainable technologies or methodologies for cleaning firefighting delivery systems in aircraft hangars or on firefighting vehicles that have contained per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)-based firefighting foams. Funding for these projects will begin in Fiscal Year 2020.
The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative 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.
Proposals responding to these solicitations will be selected through a competitive process. All proposals are due by Thursday, November 21, 2019 by 2:00 p.m. ET. The topics and detailed instructions are available on the ESTCP website.
