EPA Developing, Demonstrating Nanosensor Technology to Detect, Monitor, & Degrade Pollutants Request
Funder/Agency Name: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Opportunity Number: EPA-G2023-STAR-A1
Description of Opportunity: Environmental pollutants such as pesticides, insecticides, dyes, phenols, endocrine disrupters, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), heavy metals, and nitrogen compounds can have adverse effects on human health even at low concentrations. Efforts are consistently being made to develop reliable and simple sensors to detect pollutants even at low levels. Environmental remediation technologies cover a vast range of applications that require tailored engineering solutions for successful implementation. Technologies applied for the treatment of water, soil, or air involve contaminant degradation or sequestration, and often use related processes such as adsorption or reduction/oxidation (redox) reactions.
Eligibility: Public and private nonprofit institutions/organizations, public and private institutions of higher education (IHEs), and hospitals located in the U.S. and its territories or possessions; state and local governments; Federally Recognized Indian Tribal Governments; and U.S. territories or possessions are eligible to apply. Profit-making firms and individuals are not eligible to apply.
