Wastewater Efficiency Grant Pilot Program
To assist 15 publicly owned treatment works (POTW) to create or improve waste-to energy systems.
Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements
Eligible applicants include owners or operators of POTW. Grant awards can include sludge collection systems, anaerobic digesters, methane capture or transfer, and other emerging technologies that transform waste to energy.
Consider deployment of methane capture and transfer technology to increase renewable energy supply. Improve the efficiency of waste-to-energy systems to reduce carbon emissions from waste treatment.
Local communities should be engaged with the deployment of waste-to-energy systems and be informed of potential impacts. Consider how the new system can benefit local communities, especially those disadvantaged groups. Potential positive impacts include air quality improvement, clean energy supply increase, new job opportunities, etc.
$100,000,000 are available for FY2022 through FY2026.
