Solid Waste Research
Proposals are sought for research into alternative methods of solid waste disposal, including the reduction of the amount of solid waste generated, the reuse and recycling of materials, composting, source separation, and the disposal of household hazardous waste.
Research proposals may consider the environmental effects of the technologies being researched and measures that could be taken to mitigate such effects. Applied research designed to provide benefits to persons who generate solid waste and to public and private entities responsible for collection, storage, transportation, treatment or disposal of solid waste, is encouraged. Proposals are also sought for projects that will develop products or increase markets for products made from recycled materials.
Joint proposals in which industrial, business, or governmental organizations collaborate with UW System faculty or staff in addressing these issues are encouraged and will be given special consideration. In such joint proposals, the organization is strongly encouraged to provide resources in the form of direct monetary or in-kind contributions in support of the proposed research projects.
Proposals may request up to $30,000. Projects funds must be expended or encumbered prior to 30 June 2014.
