Description

The Environmental Research and Education Foundation is seeking applications for its Research Grants Program to address all areas of integrated solid waste management, with a strong focus towards research that increased sustainable solid waste management practices.

It should be noted that EREF defines solid waste to include:

  • municipal solid waste (e.g. residential, commercial, institutional)
  • construction & demolition debris
  • certain industrial wastes (e.g. exploration & production waste, coal ash) and
  • Other wastes typically managed by the solid waste industry or generated by the public not included in the above items (e.g. electronic waste, disaster debris, etc).

Pre-proposal topics must relate to sustainable solid waste management practices and pertain to the following topic areas:

  • Waste minimization
  • Recycling
  • Waste conversion to energy, biofuels, chemicals or other useful products.  This includes, but is not limited to, the following technologies:
    • Waste-to-energy
    • Anaerobic digestion
    • Composting
    • Other thermal or biological conversion technologies
  • Strategies to promote diversion to higher and better uses (e.g. organics diversion, market analysis, optimized material management, logistics, etc.)
  • Landfilling

Funding Information

  • Previously awarded grants have ranged from $15,000 to over $500,000 with the average grant amount in recent years being $160,000.
  • Typical project durations are about 2 years.  It should be noted that proposed research in excess of $300,000 or longer than 3 years should contain sufficient details that justify the need for the higher than average amount requested and longer project duration.
