Grant proposals requested by EPA

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is requesting proposals to fund projects and activities that support the Methane to Markets Partnership. The partnership is an international initiative to reduce global methane emissions by promoting methane capture-and-use projects in four major sectors including agriculture (animal waste management), coal mining, landfills, and oil and gas systems.

EPA expects to award up to 20 cooperative agreements through this announcement, ranging from $25,000 to $300,000 per award, for a total of $2.5 million. EPA is requesting proposals for projects that support the partnership broadly, but that may include the following types of activities: directly identify, characterize, or implement methane capture-and-use projects – including technology transfer, feasibility and pre-feasibility studies, training and capacity building or database development for potential sites.

EPA seeks proposals from international governments, as well as public or private non-profit organizations. The estimated project period for awards is May 2007 through May 2009. Proposals are due by December 4, 2006 at 4 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
