US Department of Energy Announces $14.5 Million to Combat Plastics Waste and Pollution

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced an investment of up to $14.5 million for research and development to cut waste and reduce the energy used to recycle single-use plastics like plastic bags, wraps, and films. Through this funding opportunity, DOE will support a range of projects to develop economically viable solutions for converting plastic films to more valuable materials and design new plastics that are more recyclable and biodegradable. As part of the application, applicants are required to describe how diversity, equity, and inclusion objectives will be incorporated in the project. The funding opportunity announcement is available now. The concept paper submission deadline is 6/28/2021 5:00 p.m. ET.
