FY 2018 ESTCP Solicitation Released

Posted: January 10, 2017

The Department of Defense's (DoD) Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) released a solicitation on January 5, 2017, requesting proposals for demonstrations of environmental technologies. Researchers from Federal organizations, universities, and private industry can apply for ESTCP funding via the appropriate solicitation. All proposals must respond to a Topic Area associated with the solicitation. Topic Areas for universities, private industry, and Federal organizations outside DoD differ from DoD Topic Areas. ESTCP projects are formal demonstrations in which innovative technologies are rigorously evaluated. ESTCP demonstrations are conducted at DoD facilities and sites to document improved efficiency, reduced liability, improved environmental outcomes, and cost savings. The due date for all pre-proposals is March 9, 2017 by 2:00 p.m. ET.

In-Situ Capping of Contaminated Sediments

Posted: January 19, 2017

This publication was developed to serve as a basis for the design and assessment of remediation alternatives to dredging by providing a technology overview of various capping-based techniques and describing their possibilities and limitations. The guide consists of a main text (Section 30-1E) plus several supporting but stand-alone appendices: a preliminary review of contaminated sediments in Sweden (30-2E); a general overview of established ex situ and in situ sediment remediation technologies (30-3E); a preliminary overview of remedial sediment capping projects worldwide (30-4E); a short discussion on anticipated challenges with capping Sweden's fiberbank sediments (30-5E); an extensive bibliography of international technical references (30-6E); and an overall summary (30-7E).
