A new round of funding is open from the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District for new emission-reduction proposals through its Technology Advancement Program.
The latest funding cycle offers $4 million to fund projects focusing on renewable energy, waste solutions or mobile sources. Emission reductions from these projects will help the Valley air basin meet its air quality goals. This is the fourth cycle for T.A.P.
“This program continues to be very popular,” said Seyed Sadredin, the Districts executive director and air pollution control officer. “We are pleased to offer this kind of encouragement for innovation and to support the Valley’s technology community.”
The current cycle is funded by the District with local funding and contributions from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Clean Air Technology Initiative.
Proposals will be accepted through 5 p.m. Aug. 15 and competitively scored based on objective criteria.
