The program supports research projects related to sustainable solid waste management practices, including waste minimization; recycling; waste conversion to energy, biofuels, chemicals, or other useful products; strategies to promote diversion to higher and better uses (e.g., organics diversion, market analysis, optimized material management, logistics, etc.); and landfilling.

Previously awarded grants have ranged from $15,000 to more than $500,000, with the average grant amount around $160,000.

Any U.S. or non-U.S. academic institution is eligible to apply.

Pre-proposals must be received no later than June 1, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
