Environmental Technologies.

Proposals to develop technologies and methodologies to reduce environmental impacts from current and past Navy operations are invited by the Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center (NFESC). The NFESC is interested in technologies and methodologies that are new, innovative, or that advance the state of the art or increase knowledge of a technology or methodology.

The technology or methodology should address one of the following topic areas: 1) environmental assessment, restoration, and cleanup--services to assess or remediate existing pollution generated by military operations, including methodologies for evaluation of ecologic risk, risk reduction, or establishment of risk-based cleanup goals; 2) conservation of natural resources--practices that support habitat both on land and at sea for rare species, migratory birds, or marine mammals, thus complying with environmental legislation and ensuring protection of sensitive resources while supporting military operations; 3) unexploded ordnance--detection, de-energizing, disposal, or remediation of unexploded ordnance generated by military operations; 4) pollution prevention--process design changes, management practices, or methodologies to minimize the amount of pollution generated during present or future operations; or 5) environmental compliance--process design changes or management practices to comply with local, state, and federal environmental regulations.

Applicants are invited to submit proposal abstracts through the electronic form located at http://erb.nfesc.navy.mil/baa-form.htm. The deadline for submissions is 30 September 2001.
