Title MARAD Announces Funding for Air Emissions/Alternative Energy Projects
Date Posted 6/3/2015
Description Maritime Administration (MARAD) announced that up to $1.3 million in Federal funding is now available through cooperative agreements for projects supporting vessel emissions reductions and alternative energy. The funding is being made available under two separate requests for applications — one focused on exhaust gas cleaning demonstration projects on U.S. Flag vessels that remove pollutants from the stacks of marine vessels and one focused on projects that demonstrate vessel emissions reductions through the use of alternative fuels or energy sources such as LNG or fuel cells, and improvements in vessel energy efficiency through use of conservation technology and practices. The agency intends to use the results/data demonstration projects to support further work related to air emissions reduction and alternative energy research and assess the public benefit of possible incentives to encourage adoption of emissions reduction and alternative energy in the maritime sector.
