NOI - Decarbonization of Water Resources Recovery Facilities (D-WRRF)
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office, a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Decarbonization of Water Resource Recovery Facilities (D-WRRF)”. The Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO) supports innovation in technologies and the adoption of practices to enable the industrial sector to cost-effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions. IEDO and its programs are critical to putting the Nation on a pathway to reduce CO2 emissions by 50% by 2030 when compared to 2005 levels, and to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. With 30% of primary energy-related emissions attributable to the industrial sector, IEDO builds upon and expands traditional focus on energy efficiency to include an emphasis on industrial emissions reduction technology such as electrification, low carbon fuels and feedstocks, and carbon capture. IEDO provides planning, management, and direction necessary for a balanced national program of research, development, demonstration, technical assistance, and workforce development related to technologies for energy efficiency and decarbonization of the industrial sector. Within this mission, IEDO has a specific focus on the decarbonization of the water-energy nexus, which includes both “fit-for-purpose” water from all sources, as well as efficiency and resource recovery for organic wastewaters, particularly targeting municipal Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRFs) per Congressional direction.
The FOA is expected to include the following topics:
Decarbonization of WRRF Unit Processes Research and Development: This topic will focus on research and development projects to reduce GHG emissions from various unit processes within WRRFs. Applications under this area of interest are expected to focus on emission and cost reductions from particular unit processes.
Reducing overall greenhouse GHG emissions from WRRFs: This topic will focus on pilot and demonstration projects to reduce GHG emissions and treatment costs for WRRFs. Proposals in this topic will address the GHG emissions profiles of a WRRF at larger scales and higher levels of technology readiness.
