DOE - Decarbonization of Water Resource Recovery Facilities - $23M Available - Concept Papers - 1/27

Opportunity Title: Decarbonization of Water Resource Recovery Facilities (D-WRRF)

Opportunity Number: DE-FOA-0002855


This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is being issued by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO). This FOA will advance the Biden Administration’s goals to achieve carbon pollution-free electricity by 2035 and to “deliver an equitable, clean energy future, and put the United States on a path to achieve net-zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050” to the benefit of all Americans . The research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) activities to be funded under this FOA will support the government-wide approach to the climate crisis by driving the innovation that can lead to the deployment of cost-effective industrial decarbonization technologies, which are critical to an equitable clean energy economy.”.

The industrial sector is responsible for 30% of all energy-related carbon dioxide emissions . Achieving net-zero emissions across the U.S. economy by 2050 will require an aggressive, multidimensional approach to eliminating industrial emissions. DOE’s strategy, outlined in the Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap , focuses on accelerating the innovation and adoption of energy efficiency technologies; industrial electrification technologies; low-carbon fuels, feedstocks, and energy sources (LCFFES); and carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies. DOE’s RD&D agenda supports the adoption of these technologies across the entire industrial sector, and within the most energy-and-carbon-intensive sectors with potential for greatest impact.

Specifically, this FOA will advance research and development to decarbonize our nation’s water treatment sector. Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRFs), which treat wastewater from public water systems, are estimated to be directly and indirectly responsible for over 44 million metric tons (MMT) of greenhouse gas emissions each year . This FOA will address direct and indirect emissions across the entire lifecycle of WRRFs.
